General admission tickets for race day at this weekend’s MotoGP race at Silverstone have sold out but there are grandstand seats still available.

The sold out tickets are for the general admission ‘Fan’ tickets for the Sunday of the June 18 to 20 weekend following high levels of demand. 

A statement from Silverstone says: “Grandstand tickets – available from as little as £5 more than race day general admission tickets – are still on sale for all three days. ‘Fan’ tickets for practice on Friday and qualifying on Saturday are also still available from £20 and £40 respectively." 

In order to make the next category of ticket more affordable, Silverstone has priced ‘Silver Grandstand’ tickets at £75 (for race day) – just £5 more than a race day general admission ticket would have cost.

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.

Richard Phillips, Managing Director of Silverstone Circuits Limited, commented, “We are really pleased with the way MotoGP tickets have been selling over the last few weeks and months.

“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."

Tickets are still available and can be purchased on the gate.
