General admission sell-out for British Grand Prix

General admission tickets are sold out, although grandstand tickets are still available for this weekend's event.
The first British Grand Prix to be held at Silverstone in more than two decades will be witnessed by an almost sell-out crowd after race organisers confirmed general admission tickets had now been snapped up.

Just under a week until Silverstone welcomes MotoGP back for the first time in 24 years, general admission fan tickets for Sunday's race have all been bought.

However, grandstand tickets remain available prompting Silverstone to re-price them at £75 on race day, just £5 more than the general admission ticket would have cost. Tickets for practice and qualifying are still available.

Tickets can still be purchased in advance, for collection at the circuit, and will be available on the gate. Ticket holders will also have the option to upgrade their tickets during the event.

“We are really pleased with the way MotoGP tickets have been selling over the last few weeks and months,” Richard Phillips, Silverstone managing director, said. “Demand has been very high as fans have made the most of advance ticket prices. We have worked extremely hard to deliver the best motorcycle Grand Prix experience for UK bike fans and we cannot wait for the event to start.

“We have allocated as much space as possible around the circuit to accommodate general admission 'Fan' tickets – far more for MotoGP than we do for F1, where we cannot give fans access to viewing areas in the middle of the circuit.

“We have also invested heavily in new spectator areas, including upgrading and building new banks for general access ticket holders, and opening up new spectator areas at Arena, Becketts, Copse, Vale, Luffield and the outside of Abbey. All of this has been done with the sole aim of getting fans closer to the action.”

“The viewing experience for all fans is of utmost importance - so we do cap the crowd to ensure that everyone purchasing general admission 'Fan' tickets can watch the event in relative comfort. We are expecting a great event this weekend and I would stress that grandstand tickets are still available for all days.”

I bought my tickets on e-bay that are the full 3 day pass with all the trimings from a guy who isn't going because his hero WON'T be there. Pity for him as I robbed him good and proper for the event and he should sue Vale for the loss to his wallet! :) I'm hoping for good weather and a decent race. Funny how it's only the grandstand seats that are available as there are a few people out there who claim one man makes the show... The general ticket sales tell a much different story....

A lesson for everyone make your mind up and get in early. I paid £48 each for 3 general addmission tickets, right after that 5hit hole Donny last year. :)
