British GP, Silverstone: Silverstone confirms tickets still available

F1 fans will be able to buy tickets 'on the gate' for the British Grand Prix this weekend at Silverstone
Silverstone has confirmed that tickets for this weekend's British Grand Prix are still available to buy on the gate.

While tickets can still be purchased online until 12 noon on Thursday, circuit bosses have revealed that fans will be able to buy tickets in person on arrival at the circuit on all three days of competition.

'On the gate' tickets will start at £75 for Friday practice and £100 for qualifying on Saturday, with general admission options available on both days.

Grandstand tickets remain on sale for race day, starting at £200, while parking for all three days at the circuit is also available.

“While we don't expect to reach the record attendance levels of 2011 and 2012, we are anticipating another big crowd here at Silverstone this weekend, Silverstone Circuits managing director Richard Phillips said. “Ticket sales were slower than usual during the initial sales period, but we have seen a significant upturn in interest and buying patterns since F1 returned to Europe.

“This, coupled with an improvement in the weather and a promising forecast for the weekend, has prompted us to put measures in place to sell tickets to fans deciding to turn up on the day. This weekend's attendance looks set to be one of our biggest in recent years.”

'On the day' tickets will be available to purchase at Gate 1.

Not sure if this is reflected across the board at all circuits, but a drop in interest has to be a bad thing for the sport. Is it just a result of tickets being more expensive, has the Sky deal reduced exposure, or are fans unimpressed by the high tyre degradation of current F1?
