Silverstone to offer tickets on the dayBack

British Grand Prix 2013It has just been announced that Silverstone will sell tickets on the gate for this weekend’s British Grand Prix for the first time in nine years.

With the British Grand Prix set to take place this coming weekend, tickets for the Formula 1 venue are normally sold out by this stage, but with tickets left over, a new opportunity has been created for those who still want to visit.

Managing director of the British Grand Prix Richard Phillips is still predicting a great attendance he said: “It’s true that not all tickets have yet been sold, but Silverstone will nevertheless be playing host this weekend to the third biggest crowd in British Grand Prix history, with about 300,000 expected over the three days and pushing 130,000 on Sunday.

“Those numbers are testament to the British fans, whose enthusiasm and commitment was demonstrated all too clearly last year when, despite the warnings after heavy rain led to waterlogged car parks and horrendous traffic jams, 90,000 still turned up to watch qualifying.”

The circuit at Silverstone hosted its first RAC International Grand Prix in 1948, and was the venue for the first ever round of the Formula One World Championship in 1950. The 2013 FORMULA 1 SANTANDER BRITISH GRAND PRIX will be the 47th British Grand Prix, as part of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship, to be held at Silverstone.

The presence of Fernando Alonso is highly anticipated after he broke the lap record at Silverstone in 2010 with a time of just 1:30.874. Spectators will also be looking forward to seeing British Racing drivers Louis Hamilton, Jensen Button, Paul Di Resta and Max Chilton take to the wheel for what is anticipated to be a thrilling race.

With a great weather forecast beckoning, the team at Silverstone are confident that measures put in place to sell tickets on the day for entry onto the racecourse will prove highly successful.

It has been anticipated that the team at Silverstone expect around 5 per cent of tickets to be available on the gate on this Sunday.
