Blue Badge holders and disabled parking at the circuit
Car parks open up to half an hour before gate opening times and are closed overnight – subject to change.
Blue Badge holders can park in our car park to the right of the main entrance (car park 50) – follow the signs upon arrival. If you would like to book a scooter or a wheelchair for use at our larger, promoted events then please see our Event Mobility section for more information.
Formula 1 British Grand Prix and British Grand Prix MotoGP
You will need to make us aware when you want to book disabled parking for the Formula 1 British Grand Prix and British Grand Prix MotoGP events as we will need a copy of your blue badge in order to supply you with a disabled parking pass. You will need to display this pass along with your blue badge clearly on the day.
If you experience any difficulties parking at the venue make your way to the main reception/ticket collection so that we can find a solution. For all other events this is not required please display your blue badge as normal.
We do not allow the public to park vehicles within the circuit for many of our larger events.
All of our accessible 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 and the Disability Rights UK shop.
All registered assistance dogs are welcome. However, before your arrival please contact the circuit so that the necessary arrangements can be made. We would recommend, due to the large number of visitors we have on-site during the Formula 1 British Grand Prix and MotoGP, that you consider our personal assistant scheme (above) as this entitles you to bring a personal assistant free of charge in place of your assistance Dog.

First Aid and Medical Assistance
