Silverstone to release cut-price tickets for 2015 GP

Silverstone Circuit will be releasing 1000 tickets for this years British Grand Prix on Wednesday 28 January at just £99 each.

The General Admission ticket is for race day on Sunday 05 July, and they go on sale at 0900 tomorrow morning on a first come first served basis.

Circuit officials have also reduced the ticketing price for children to help encourage families to attend the Grand Prix, with children aged ten or younger now admitted free, while eleven to fifteen-year-olds can attend race day at Silverstone for just £49.

Silverstone Managing Director Patrick Allen had pledged recently to make the British Grand Prix more affordable for 2016, but due to the response on his statement being so positive, it was decided to make a limited amount of tickets available for 2015 at this new lower price.

“We need to start appealing to a broader audience and an element of this is obviously about getting the product right but we also have to offer good value for money,” said Mr Allen. “The last time Silverstone sold Grand Prix tickets for £99 was the same year that Lewis Hamilton won his first F1 World Championship so in order to celebrate his second title we are releasing a limited number of 2015 tickets at 2008 prices.”

Customers who had already purchased Sunday General Admission tickets for 2015 will be upgraded to a grandstand seat.
