With the British GrandPrix on at Silverstone this weekend, the A43 is closed to through traffic from 5am to 9pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. so if like me you would normally go via the A34-M40-A43-M1 you will need to find a different route.

There are diversions in place but if possible I'd avoid the area completely!

Full details here:

“I wanted to come to the Volga at a specific location at a specific city. By chance it carries the name of Stalin himself. So don’t think I marched there for this reason – it could carry another name – but because there is a very important goal... this goal I wanted to take – and you know – we are very modest, we have it already."
Adolf Hitler, November 1942

"Comrades, Red Army men, commanders and political workers, men and women guerrillas! It is on your perseverance, staunchness, fighting skill and readiness to discharge your duty to the country that the defeat of the German-fascist army and the liberation of the Soviet land from the Hitlerite invaders depend! We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."
Joseph Stalin, November 1942

M40-M42-M6-M69 is a good route if you're coming up the A34.

Alternatively M40 to J15 then A46 North which turns into the M69 at M6 J2.

Or M40 to J11 then A423 North which joins the A46 which turns into the M69 at M6 J2.

Don't bother with any of the other rural roads in Warwickshire as they're clogged with trucks and tractors most of the time.

Yep, that is probably the route I will go for, A bit of a "long way round" but probably the quickest :good:

Yep, but technically you bypass the M6.
