Public Security

We are very much looking forward to putting together another great season of motorsport events on this year. If you are lucky enough to be attending then no doubt you’re already planning on what to bring, so we just wanted to update you with some important security information on this year’s events which we thought would help.

As always, we have put in place all necessary measures to maximise public safety, working closely with the emergency services and specialist advisors. There will be some additional security measures which we hope you will help us with.

For security reasons at this year’s events all people entering the venue maybe be subject to extra searches of their bags and their person. This will make entering the venue a little slower than in previous years. Please ensure you arrive early and allow for longer waiting times while we conduct searches. In order to facilitate quicker access can we please ask that you only bring one bag into the venue, and that it is no bigger than a standard rucksack (max 20 litre capacity).

We do appreciate that you’re going to be with us on site for most of the day, but the less you bring, the quicker you’ll get through the gates. We encourage you to pack as little as you can and only bring essentials. It really will make things quicker. Once on site you will have access to free water and we have a massive range of food outlets that cater for every taste.

As you approach the gates your bags will need to be accessible for searches so could we please ask that you have your coat and your bag open to facilitate a search. Please be patient if there are queues, and please cooperate with any security requests and searches. We aim to get you in as quick as we can. The less you bring the quicker you will get through.

Could we also please ask, as an additional security measure that you put luggage tags on all of your bags with your name and mobile number, so that it can be easily identified. Please don’t at any time leave your bag or personal belongings unattended.

If you leave the venue to go back to your car or campsite then please ensure you have a pass out stamp as your ticket stub won’t allow you back in.

We will have security staff, Police and Race Makers on site so if you have any questions or concerns then please don’t hesitate to ask them, they will only be too happy to help.

We haven’t taken this decision lightly and we really do understand that this may cause some inconvenience to a number of you, but we here at Silverstone take your safety and security seriously.

Please keep an eye on our Website, Facebook and Twitter pages for the most up to date information.

If you see or suspect anything suspicious then please contact the police straightaway on 999.
