Each year Silverstone donates event tickets to the value of approximately £20,000 to a wide range of charitable causes across the region. These are typically used to raise funds through a raffle or charity auction.
Our charity policy allows us to focus our available resources on our most local charities (within a 10 mile radius) or those with a strong motorsport connection.
If you would like to apply for event tickets to raise funds through a raffle or auction and you meet the criteria above, please fill in the charity enquiry form opposite.
Due to the high volume of requests we receive unfortunately we are unable to respond to enquiries that do not meet the criteria above.

Circuit update for local residents – 3 November
Following the recent Government announcement of a four-week England lockdown starting on Thursday 5th November, Silverstone has had to make a number of changes to its event schedules to comply with the regulations.
Silverstone 500 (7/8 November)
The final round of the British GT Championship will take place at Silverstone this weekend. The championship has been granted elite sport status, allowing it to be held behind closed doors with British F3 also running at this event. The test days on Thursday and Friday prior to this event will also be going ahead.
750 Motor Club race meeting (14 November)
The 750 Motor Club race meeting falls into the non-elite motorsport category, which has been suspended by four-wheel governing body, Motorsport UK. We are working with the Club to reschedule this event when lockdown is lifted and it is safe to do so. The pre-event test day will also be rescheduled to fit with the new race meeting date as and when this is confirmed.
Run Silverstone (15 November)
The organisers of this event are anticipating that Run Silverstone will not be able to go ahead on its scheduled date and are awaiting guidance from the sport’s governing body, Run Britain.
Exclusive and semi-exclusive test days, as well as filming days will be going ahead, in line with Government regulations and a robust COVID-19 policy.
As always, the safety of those attending and delivering our events, as well as that of our local community, is our priority.
Please check the residents page of the website for updates, we’ll post any time changes and noisy days information on this as well as posting on local villages’ social media groups. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your support and understanding.
