Silverstone British MotoGP tickets go on sale

'Welcome Back' adult race day ticket costs £60, or £70 for the weekend - free entry for children under 11...
Following the surprise news that Silverstone has regained the British MotoGP for the next two seasons, tickets have now gone on sale for this year's event.

Silverstone reached an agreement with event promoters the Circuit of Wales after Donington Park backed away from a planned partnership.

A 'Welcome Back' Silverstone ticket will be available to purchase until the end of March, which will be cheaper than both the previous 2015 early bird offer and Silverstone's own 2014 MotoGP prices.

A 'Welcome Back' adult race day ticket will cost £60, with a Welcome Back adult weekend ticket costing just £10 more at £70. Children aged 10 and under can attend the weekend free of charge. All of which means that a family of four can attend the whole weekend from £140.

“I believe the Welcome Back ticket will see those fans that may have been put off by increasing prices returning to the event,” declared Silverstone managing director Patrick Allen. “We know that MotoGP has a large family following and the rationale of making under 11's free of charge is to appeal to those families.

“The event date of 30 August coincides nicely with the end of the school summer holidays and we are planning a fantastic weekend of entertainment to support the on-track action and deliver a great fun filled experience for the spectators – young and old.”

Chris Herring, Event Director for the Circuit of Wales, stated: “We have worked closely with Patrick and the team at Silverstone to give fans a great introductory 'Welcome Back' price for this year's British MotoGP. The new management at Silverstone share our vision for MotoGP in the UK and we want to attract a wider audience to the race weekend and appeal to families over the August Bank Holiday.”

Herring added, “We want to demonstrate to the fans in the UK that we are committed to the long-term future of the event and this ticketing strategy, together with our joint marketing plans for the event will ensure we deliver a great festival of racing and entertainment at MotoGP 2015.”
