British Grand Prix grandstands selling out as FIA confirms 2014 F1 calendar
As the FIA officially confirmed the calendar for next year’s Formula 1® World Championship, Silverstone has announced that several grandstands are already close to selling out for the 2014 FORMULA 1 SANTANDER BRITISH GRAND PRIX (04-06 July).
As in 2013, the highest demand has been for premium seats in the ‘International Pits Straight’ grandstand, opposite the Silverstone Wing Pit and Paddock Complex, and overlooking the Start / Finish line. The highest priced ‘Three Day’ and ‘Sunday Only’ tickets have already sold out in ‘International Pits Straight’, however, a limited number of tickets are still available in other sections of the grandstand.
‘Stowe B’ grandstand is another approaching complete sell-out, while tickets in ‘Woodcote B’, ‘Club Corner’, ‘Luffield’ and ‘Copse B’ grandstands are also limited.
Richard Phillips, Managing Director of Silverstone Circuits Limited, commented: “This year’s British Grand Prix was a fantastic spectacle and the fans’ experience has translated into early interest and promising ticket sales. Sales were up 50% (compared with 2012) over the Grand Prix weekend itself and a number of the best grandstands are now almost sold out.
“While there are plenty of tickets still available in a number of other grandstands and General Admission areas, we would advise fans wanting a choice of grandstands to book as soon as possible. Next year’s rules will see a significant change to Formula 1, with teams having to design new cars from scratch. With the extra power from the new turbo engines we’re expecting real drama and excitement around the high speed track here at Silverstone.”
Tickets for the 2014 FORMULA 1 SANTANDER BRITISH GRAND PRIX are on sale 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Visit www.silverstone.co.uk for more information or call 0844 3728 300.
