Britain sells out
The British Grand Prix has sold out for all three days of the meeting, which will take place between July 9-11. The race will take place in front of a capacity crowd of 100,000, which will be the highest attendance since 1999 and the first sell-out in the same period. Demand has been high, largely because of the new pricing structure, which has offered enhanced value and a range of options for fans.
There are a limited number of hospitality packages still available but general admission tickets are no longer being sold and Silverstone has already started pumping out the message that people should not just turn up hoping for a ticket.
One of the innovations at this year's event is Grand Prix Drivers Association support for The Grand Prix Party which will take place in the centre of the circuit after the event. This will guarantee the attendance of a number of drivers along with music from the Beach Boys, Jenson Button's fiancˇ Louise Griffiths and Atomic Kitten's Jenny Frost.
