Following the final meeting of the World Motor Sport Council in 2013, the official calendar for next season was revealed today with the British Grand Prix taking its expected slot on July 4th-6th, one week later than this year’s race.
However, fans who are planning on making the pilgrimage to the home of motor racing in the UK should consider buying their tickets soon as many of the most popular grandstands are close to selling out. The circuit’s MD, Richard Phillips, attributed the good ticket sales to the exciting race that we saw back in June of this year.
“This year’s British Grand Prix was a fantastic spectacle and the fans’ experience has translated into early interest and promising ticket sales,” Phillips explained. “Sales were up 50% (compared with 2012) over the grand prix weekend itself and a number of the best grandstands are now almost sold out.
“While there are plenty of tickets still available in a number of other grandstands and general admission areas, we would advise fans wanting a choice of grandstands to book as soon as possible. Next year’s rules will see a significant change to Formula One, with teams having to design new cars from scratch. With extra power from the turbo engines we’re expecting real drama and excitement around the high speed track here at Silverstone.”
