Personal Assistant Ticket Scheme
As part of our commitment to make Silverstone accessible to all for our promoted meetings we may provide those disabled ticket holders that require full time assistance with 1 free ticket for a partner, accompanying friend or personal assistant (PA).
To download a PA application form for 2018 events, please click here.
To qualify for a PA ticket you will need to provide a copy, without exception, of your most recent DLA letter for care and mobility, receipt of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) showing your current entitlement, or a copy of your Attendance Allowance. If you require disabled car parking or camping for Formula 1 British Grand Prix or MotoGP™ a photocopy of both sides of your ‘blue badge’ is required. If you are not offered a free ticket for a PA and the event has sold out we will make one ticket available for you to buy.
For enquiries related to the Personal Assistance Ticket Scheme please call 0844 3750 740.
Children (aged 15 and under) with a disability must be accompanied by an adult paying the full retail rate as with all child tickets for the venue.
Please send all application forms back via email, fax or post:
You will need to make us aware when you want to book disabled parking for the Formula 1 British Grand Prix event as we will need a copy of your blue badge in order to supply you with a disabled access pass. You will need to display this pass along with your blue badge clearly on the day.
Disabled parking is located at car park 50 to the right of the main entrance and is well signposted. For our larger promoted meetings there are also limited disabled car park spaces in the East car park which allows easier access to Copse, Becketts, Club Silverstone and Stowe. For this car park you need to ensure that you inform the stewards so that they can park you in the hard standing area near the gate.
If you experience any difficulties parking at the venue make your way to the main reception/ticket collection so that we can deal with your problem. For all other events this is not required please display your blue badge as normal.
Following our Workplace Transport risk assessment we have identified the need to reduce the vehicle/person interface. We therefore do not allow public to park vehicles within the circuit for Formula 1 British Grand Prix and MotoGP.
Vehicle clamping/towing will be in operation so please ensure that you display the correct passes.
All of our disabled toilets are fitted with RADAR locks to prevent access to any person not registered with the national scheme. Keys are available to purchase in advance from participating local authorities, the Disability Rights UK shop or online by searching “national radar key scheme” through your internet search engine.
We have an induction loop in our main reception areas which can be linked to visitor hearing aids. Please note we don’t have an induction loop in our Welcome Centre.
All registered assistance dogs are welcome. However, before your arrival please contact the circuit on 0844 3750 740 (Monday to Friday: 8:30am to 5:00pm only) so that the necessary arrangements can be made. We would recommend, due to the large number of visitors we have on site during the Grand Prix, that you consider our personal assistant scheme as this entitles you to bring a personal assistant free of charge in place of your assistance Dog.
First Aid and Medical Assistance
For all events qualified staff and facilities are available. Special medical requirements or concerns should be highlighted prior to arrival by calling 0844 3750 740. This will allow us to make arrangements to ensure we provide you with the required level of medical care.
For any other information regarding disabled access or facilities please call 0844 3750 740 (Monday to Friday: 8:30am to 5:00pm only), email or write to us at: Silverstone Circuits, Disabled Enquires, Circuit Office, Northamptonshire NN12 8TN. You can also find out more information about the facilities we have on site by visiting the DisabledGo website.
Please note that we cannot guarantee access to disabled facilities if you have not pre-booked or contacted us prior to your arrival. All applications are at the discretion of Silverstone Circuits Ltd and we reserve the right to alter or withdraw arrangements at any time. Please be aware that all applications are dealt with on an individual basis.
The disabled facilities and PA scheme are not open to people with temporary injuries or conditions.
If you have an enquiry regarding any Disabled Access or Facilities issues at Silverstone, or have any suggestions or comments, then please email us.
We endeavour to accommodate other special needs visitors if possible at all our events. Please contact the call centre on 0844 3750 740 when booking your tickets to ensure we are aware of your specific requirements.
