The FIM Superbike World Championship (SBK) heads to Silverstone this weekend (29-31 July), and Silverstone is offering fans and families a great start to the summer holidays - free entry to the event for children aged 15 and under*.
Whether you are a die-hard World Superbike fan or a ‘first time’ family, Silverstone has lined up an extensive range of on and off-track entertainment for members of all the family. Activities range from spectacular on-track action and high hopes for our six British World Superbike riders, to stunt shows, air displays and funfair rides.
In addition to Silverstone’s ‘kids go free’ policy for all three days of the World Superbike event, the Silverstone Paddock will be open on Thursday afternoon from 13.00hrs to all members of the public, free of charge.
As a preview to one of the circuit’s biggest events of the year, visitors to the Silverstone Paddock will have the opportunity to soak up the pre-event atmosphere and meet the SBK riders at an official autograph signing session.
All of the World Superbike riders, including the Brit-pack and championship leaders, will be making appearances throughout the afternoon on Thursday, from 14:00hrs onwards, including:
Eugene Laverty - Yamaha World Superbike Team
