Silverstone adds two new grandstands for 2012

A pair of new grandstands are being set up at Silverstone ahead of the 2012 British Grand Prix. Due to high demand in ticket sales, already up by 10 percent in comparison with this time last year, a number of stands are already sold out.

The new stands will be named ‘Luffield Complex Grandstand’ and ‘Silverstone Grandstand’ and located in the Luffield Complex and the National Pits Straight, respectively. In total, an extra 3,500 fans will be able to enter the venue. Seats in the Luffield stand will be part of the ‘Gold’ category, whereas those in the Silverstone stand will fall into the ‘Silver’ ticket category.

“We had fantastic crowds on all three days of last year’s British Grand Prix and interest in this year’s event has been even higher," says Richard Phillips, Managing Director of Silverstone Circuits Limited. “Increasing our capacity will enable even more fans to experience the spectacle, excitement and drama of Formula 1 at Silverstone."

Ahead of the race weekend on 6-8 July, the Northamptonshire circuit has also launched a new ‘four for the price of three’ offer on General Admission tickets.
