As we get closer to the events this Summer, If UK Government guidelines prevent Silverstone from hosting events with spectators, then ticket holders will be given the option to transfer their ticket to the following year or receive a full refund.
The health and safety of fans, staff and teams visiting Silverstone remains our highest priority. We are working with the relevant authorities including Public Health England and the local agencies to ensure we put in place all the necessary policies and procedures to deliver COVID safe events.
Following the publication of the Government’s four step roadmap out of lockdown we are putting plans in place that will enable us to welcome as many fans as possible to all 2021 events. We remain optimistic that, providing the journey out of lockdown and the gradual easing of restrictions continues to be a success, we will have full crowds at Silverstone at all events
