Silverstone will welcome a capacity crowd for this year’s British Grand Prix, as SunSport first revealed earlier this month.
Around 400,000 Formula One fans are expected over four days after the race was included as part of the Government’s pilot scheme for large-scale events.
Managing Director of Silverstone, Stuart Pringle, said: “This is something we have all been working towards for months and I cannot wait to welcome a full capacity crowd back to Silverstone this July.
“Many of our fans rolled their tickets over from 2020 but they are now well placed to enjoy what is sure to be one of the highlights of the summer.
“My thanks go to the Culture Secretary and his team at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport for their tireless efforts on behalf of the sports sector.
“But also the Prime Minister, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Michael Gove and the teams in No.10 and the Cabinet Office for recognising what an amazing, safe opportunity the British Grand Prix offers to show the world how Britain has dragged itself back on track following the fight against the pandemic”
