Next month’s British Grand Prix could be a complete sell-out, according to the latest update from organisers of the annual race at Silverstone.
Over 95 per cent of the tickets for the Grand Prix, which takes place between July 2-5, have been snaffled up, prompting event officials to try and create additional seating a the Club and Becketts corners, as well as increasing general admission capacity.
“Thanks to recent pricing initiatives and opening up the event to make it more affordable for families we are now almost full,” Silverstone’s Managing Director, Patrick Allen, said.
“Demand has been tremendous and we are 95 per cent sold and predicting that 2015 will be a record breaking crowd.”
The British Grand Prix looks on track to being the second event of the season to achieve sell-out status some time before the Grand Prix itself. November’s Mexican Grand Prix – which returns to the Formula 1 calendar for the first time since 1992 – sold all of its tickets in a matter of minutes when they were put up for sale.
