Sunday’s British Grand Prix has officially sold out, Silverstone track officials have claimed.
Organisers of this weekend’s event – which will run on the completely reconfigured circuit for the first time – have confirmed that a few tickets are still available for Friday and Saturday’s running, but that Sunday will see a capacity crowd of 120,000 fans.
“We expect this year’s grand prix to attract one of the biggest three-day crowds in the event’s history,” said Richard Phillips, Silverstone’s Managing Director.
At this stage, roughly 90,000 fans will go through the turnstiles on Friday, while 100,000 will do so to watch Saturday’s qualifying session.
