Jenson Button, David Coulthard and Lewis Hamilton can look forward to a race day sell-out crowd for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone Nothing beats the exhilarating live experience of the British Grand Prix and with tickets for the Sunday sold out, fans wanting a taste of this year's F1 action are now switching their attention to individual day tickets for both practice on Friday 4 and qualifying on Saturday 5 July.
Adult tickets are still available from £49 for the Friday and £69 for the Saturday (child prices* are 50% of an adult ticket on both days), however, due to overwhelming levels of demand, only a limited number of tickets remain for qualifying on Saturday.
Richard Phillips, Managing Director of Silverstone Circuits Ltd, commented: "The support for this year's British Grand Prix has been exceptional. This is the earliest I can remember us selling out of race day tickets, but fans can still buy individual day tickets for qualifying on Saturday and practice on Friday. Qualifying, in particular, builds to an unbelievable climax and is a great day to experience.
"The British fans are some of the most loyal and knowledgeable fans in the world and we are delighted that they have shown such overwhelming support for the event. A sell out crowd is exactly what Silverstone, Formula One, the drivers and, more importantly, the fans deserve. This clearly highlights the popularity and importance of the British Grand Prix."
