COVID

As we’re working to current government regulations, our venue is operating within a restricted area for spectators. If we’re advised that we are able to open up additional general viewing areas after Step 4 of the roadmap we’ll be doing this, however you will still have the ability to sit in your reserved grandstand seat.

As we’re planning for a socially distanced event under the current regulations, our fans can be reassured that they can still attend even if restrictions are not lifted by the time of the Intelligent Money British GT Championship round at Silverstone.

We have to conform to the prevailing government and Motorsport UK regulations, so as and when we are officially informed of any changes to these, we will be able to respond and provide additional access.
