Silverstone to build extra grandstands

Silverstone today announced that it will be building an additional 2,200 grandstand seats in response to the overwhelming demand for tickets to this year's British Grand Prix, taking place at Silverstone on 4-6 July. Interest in F1 in the UK has exploded since Lewis Hamilton burst onto the scene last year.

Richard Phillips, Managing Director of Silverstone Circuits Limited, commented, "Interest in this year's British Grand Prix has been overwhelming and we are having to build additional grandstand seating to accommodate the high levels of demand. Race day tickets are almost sold out, so fans are now switching to single-day tickets, in prime viewing locations, for Friday and Saturday. Last year's qualifying was one of the highlights of the weekend and, available from £69, Saturday-only tickets provide an unforgettable taste of the drama and excitement that Formula One has to offer."
