The Circuit of Wales (CoW) and Silverstone have announced that the tickets for this season’s British round of the FIM Moto GP Championship are now on sale.
The news follows last week’s announcement that Silverstone will host the event this season and in 2016 after the deal between the CoW and Donington Park collapsed.
To celebrate the new deal, Silverstone have unveiled a special ‘Welcome Back’ ticketing offer in an effort to allow more fans to go to the event.
The ‘Welcome Back’ tickets will be available until the end of March and cost less than the original 2015 early-bird tickets and also Silverstone’s 2014 ticket prices.
Silverstone’s Managing Director, Patrick Allen, said: “I believe the Welcome Back ticket will see those fans that may have been put off by increasing prices returning to the event. We know that MotoGPTM has a large family following and the rationale of making under 11’s free of charge is to appeal to those families.
“The event date of 30 August coincides nicely with the end of the school summer holidays and we are planning a fantastic weekend of entertainment to support the on-track action and deliver a great fun filled experience for the spectators – young and old.”
The cost of a ‘Welcome Back’ adult race ticket is £60, with fans able to upgrade to a weekend ticket for just £10 more, at £70.
A family of four can purchase a weekend ticket from the price of £140, with children under the age of 10 being able to watch all of the action over the weekend for free.
Event Director for the CoW, Chris Herring, added: “We have worked closely with Patrick and the team at Silverstone to give fans a great introductory ‘Welcome Back’ price for this year’s British MotoGPTM. The new management at Silverstone share our vision for MotoGPTM in the UK and we want to attract a wider audience to the race weekend and appeal to families over the August Bank Holiday.
“We want to demonstrate to the fans in the UK that we are committed to the long-term future of the event and this ticketing strategy, together with our joint marketing plans for the event will ensure we deliver a great festival of racing and entertainment at MotoGP 2015.”
