Silverstone tickets selling fast.

The final grand prix at Silverstone, for the foreseeable future at least, looks set to be a sell-out after the circuit reported that ticket sales were defying the current economic gloom.

While the natural draw of seeing Britain's latest Formula One champion in action will have attracted both casual viewers and hardcore fans alike, the thought that contemporary F1 cars may not be seen in anger on the iconic airfield circuit will also have attracted those keen to get one last taste of the action before the race heads north to a heavily revamped Donington Park from 2010.

Tickets for all three days of the 2009 British Grand Prix, which takes place earlier than usual over the weekend of 19-21 June, have been snapped up quickly, with Silverstone's sales office confirming that a number of grandstands have already sold out, and general admission tickets - which provide fans with the opportunity to watch the action from various points around the circuit, looking set to follow suit, with only a limited number of the three-day passes remaining at £125 and expected to sell out within a matter of weeks.

Three-day and single-day tickets are still available for a number of terraces and grandstands but, following two successive sell-outs, the message from the circuit is a familiar one.

“To avoid disappointment, fans should book tickets now for what will be the last British Grand Prix at Silverstone,” Richard Phillips, managing director of Silverstone Circuits Limited, noted.

“The 2009 British Grand Prix will be a double celebration, marking the last British Grand Prix at Silverstone for the foreseeable future and the homecoming for a British F1 world champion, Lewis Hamilton - an occasion to remember for everyone involved: drivers, teams, media and, most importantly, the fans.

“The last two British Grands Prix at Silverstone have both sold out in advance and this year's event looks set to sell out even earlier, so we would urge anyone wanting to join us to book their tickets as soon as possible.”

Cant sign in for some reasons... Anyway, Silverstone is only a sellout these days because the cut back the numbers of tickets the sell. I think 80,000 is a sellout, yet in the early 90's and before it could attract around 120,000 fans I believe.
