The briefing was by an ex-1970's F1 driver and was interesting but largely irrelevant. He talked about driving on ice and snow, skid pans and how to correct for a skid. It was the middle of August and the track was bone dry. The instructor, Will, had been brought in to cover and I could tell immediately by his attitude that he didn't want to be there. As an instructor myself, I can safely say the driving instruction was poor. There were no cones on the track to guide where to brake and turn. He gave no pre-emptive guidance but merely shouted at me to brake, turn now, keep right, change gear. Sorry, which way is the track (I had studied it before)? Which gear do you want? What speed? Everything happens very quickly. I had to ask him for this information. I'm pretty sure that I got only 8/9 laps of the track. Being at Silvestone is special but I had a similar track day at Prestwold with Everyman Racing and the instruction was so much better.
