Tickets for the 2016 Silverstone Classic go on general sale today (Thursday 12 November) with significant discounts for ‘Early Bird’ bookers.
After the huge success of this year’s record-breaking Silver Jubilee extravaganza – an event which attracted more than 100,000 visitors for the first time in the Classic’s 25-year history – the 2016 Silverstone Classic (29-31 July) is already gearing up for another massive attendance next summer, not least as many admission prices have been frozen and a great value new Family Ticket has been introduced.
With more and more festival-goers finding one day just isn’t enough at the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival, prices for three-day adult tickets – as well as camping and hospitality – are being held for 2016.
What’s more, for those planning ahead – or perhaps purchasing the perfect Christmas gift – discounts of up to 17 per cent are available on Early Bird tickets on sale until 31 March. These discounted Early Bird adult tickets cost £35 for Friday, £59 for Saturday and £49 for Sunday, while a three-day weekend ticket costs just £99.
Commenting on the 2016 event, Nick Wigley, CEO of Goose Live Events, the company responsible for Silverstone Classic, said: “We are delighted to offer three-day tickets in 2016 at the same great value as this year. The event is now a firm family favourite and it’s wonderful to see all generations enjoying our celebration of classic motor racing. In recognition of this, we’ve also introduced a special new family ticket for the whole weekend – including camping for two adults and two children (aged 6-16) – which is discounted by over 20 per cent on our advance tickets. We’re looking forward to another great event in July!”
As widely-praised tradition dictates, all Classic tickets provide ‘access all areas’ ensuring everyone gets up close to the unrivalled spectacle of priceless racing and glittering classic road cars from bygone halcyon eras. All tickets provide unlimited access to both buzzing race paddocks and covered grandstand seating for great spectating, further enhanced by race commentary and live action on the big screens. Interactive driving activities, access to all the car club displays, live music from top classic rock bands and lots of family entertainment in the infield including a free vintage funfair all guarantee an unforgettable weekend.
Tickets are available via the official website www.silverstoneclassic.com. Early Bird ticket sales close at midnight on 31 March, 2016 with advance tickets available from 1 April, 2016. As in recent years, all admittance will be by Early Bird or Advance ticket only – there will be no sales on-the-gate at Silverstone.
