British GP Party to be bigger than ever

F1, Rock 'n' Roll and Football at the 2010 British Grand Prix Party.
Post-race celebrations at the F1 2010 Santander British Grand Prix will be bigger than ever this year, organisers have promised.

More than 20,000 fans are expected to stay behind on Sunday 11 July for Silverstone's post-race Grand Prix Party, where the football World Cup Final will be shown on a giant screen.

Silverstone's traditional finale to the Grand Prix weekend will take place on a purpose-built stage in the middle of the circuit. Free to all ticket holders, the Grand Prix Party looks set to attract its biggest crowd yet - and surely one of the largest gatherings of people, anywhere in the UK, coming together to watch the football.

This year's Party will be well supported by the teams too, with current F1 drivers and legends of British motor sport appearing on stage to chat to fans.

Live music will be headlined by Eddie Jordan and 'friends'. The BBC presenter and former F1 team principal, an accomplished drummer, will be joined on stage by a host of musicians throughout the evening. The line-up will include members of Eddie's own band, 'The Robbers', the brilliant new girl band 'Angels In White' and one or two surprise guest-appearances from the world of F1.

The 2010 Grand Prix Party will be the eighth to be held at Silverstone. The event was originally developed by the circuit to add value to the fans' experience. All of the drivers receive a hero's welcome, but the biggest cheers of the day are saved for Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton.

In 2009 the British drivers were joined on stage by fellow F1 drivers Sebastian Vettel, Mark Webber, Rubens Barichello, Nico Rosberg, Kazuki Nakajima and Nelson Piquet Jr. Sir Jackie Stewart OBE, Damon Hill OBE, Sir Stirling Moss, Johnny Herbert, David Coulthard, Martin Brundle, Derek Warwick and BBC presenter Jake Humphrey were also a huge hit with the crowd.

Tickets for the F1 2010 Santander British Grand Prix are still available at www.silverstone.co.uk, or by calling 0844 3728 300.
