For those visitors who find the journey or distances a bit more challenging then you can sit down for a break. There are numerous seats/picnic tables 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.
Wheelchair accessible hospitality is available for all our promoted meetings please call 0344 3728 232 for details.
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 DISABLED SPECTATORS
For our large events there is a dedicated body of stewards with particular responsibilities for offering assistance to disabled spectators who will be deployed at all appropriate locations around the circuit. They have all undertaken specific disability awareness training.
SITE LAYOUT AND GROUND CONDITIONS
The site is spread over 850 acres some of which are fields and grassed areas. There are some hard-standing and tarmac areas together with stone paths and the site can be quite difficult to negotiate. The weather can have a massive 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. We do try to improve the terrain year on year but with the recent major works taking place on site we don’t always get it right.
