GETTING ABOUT AT SILVERSTONE
For our large promoted events we work with a charitable company that specialise in providing a facility to assist fans with a disability, elderly and mobility impaired called Event Mobility. Event Mobility will be based in car park 50 which is also our main disabled car parking area next to our Main Gate.
If you would like to book a scooter or a wheelchair for use at our promoted events then please click here to find out more. Hire costs are as follows: £30 hire for electric scooters and £10 for wheelchairs.
Alternatively you can download the advance booking form here: Advance Booking Form and send it to Event Mobility, 3 Racecourse Road, Pershore, Worcestershire, WR10 2EY.
For those visitors who find the journey or distances a bit more challenging, there are some seats located around the perimeter of the circuit that can be accessed easily by those persons using walking aids such as crutches, sticks or walking frames.
Please note for bigger events, such as the Formula 1 British Grand Prix where it is particularly busy, you may want to bring fold-up chairs or alternatives just in case.
So that we are better able to assist you all our staff have received Disability Awareness training. This is carried out on a regular basis.
STEWARDING FOR SPECTATORS WITH A DISABILITY
For our large events, we have a dedicated body of stewards and racemakers with the responsibility of offering assistance to fans with a disability at appropriate locations around the circuit.
SITE LAYOUT AND GROUND CONDITIONS
Silverstone is spread over 600 acres some of which are fields and grassed areas. There are some hard-standing and tarmac areas together with stone paths and the weather can have an enormous impact on how easy it is for people to move around the site so please take this into consideration when deciding on what equipment to bring with you.
