Silverstone Announces Huge Programme of Off-Track Events for the British Grand Prix


Any fans heading to the British Grand Prix next weekend not only have plenty of on-track action to look forward to, but the Silverstone circuit will also be providing a range of off-track entertainment.

Free to all ticket holders is the Sunday-afternoon Silverstone Grand Prix party, which takes place after the race. Current F1 drivers and British motorsport legends will appear on stage to chat to fans, whilst live music will be provided by Eddie Jordan and ‘The Robbers’, as well as ‘Classic Rock Show’.

Last year’s party was well attended by F1 celebrities, including Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Mark Webber, Christian Horner, Damon Hill, David Coulthard, Martin Brundle, Derek Warwick and Eddie Jordan.

There will also be live music on Friday and Saturday in the Arena Entertainment Zone.

Air displays also feature throughout the weekend: Friday sees the Red Devils Parachute Display Team; on Saturday it is the turn of the Aerostars Yak Aerobatic Team; Sunday, of course, sees the traditional display from the excellent Red Arrows.

All of the F1 drivers will be attending an exclusive autograph session on the Saturday of the British Grand Prix with all 100 places available to fans as competition prizes. These competitions will be running on the Friday and Saturday at the Entertainment Zones at ‘Arena’, ‘Stowe’ and ‘Copse’, and also on Silverstone radio.

Individual and Family tickets are still available for the Friday and Saturday at www.silverstone.co.uk, or by calling 0844 3728 300. Race day tickets are expected to sell out in advance.
