How to buy early British Grand Prix tickets for Silverstone 2024
Blink and you’ll miss it. The British Grand Prix is coming back to Silverstone next year and now's your chance to grab an early ticket. Here’s everything you need to know.
2023 is drifting on and soon we’ll be racing towards a new year. Then, once 2024 hits, we'll be counting down to one of the top racing events of the year, the British Grand Prix.
Come next July the world’s best drivers will be revving their engines at the home of motorsport, Silverstone circuit – known for its iconic 18 bends, including the infamous hairpin known as The Loop.
This year’s F1 season will wrap up in November before starting all over again in March. So far, reigning champion Max Verstappen is looking to take home the big prize again, but who knows what awaits him in 2024.
Silverstone is the 11th race on the schedule and, as well as having twists on the course, is known for having twists in the race. At this year’s Grand Prix Norris and Hamilton got one of their few podium finishes and the year before Carlos Sainz lifted his first-ever trophy, plus, who can forget the incredible “through goes Hamilton” moment?
The racecourse has first hosted the British Grand Prix in 1948 and in 1950 hosted the first race in the World Championship of Drivers. From 1955 the British Grand Prix swapped between Silverstone, Aintree, and Brands Hatch before finding a permanent home at the Northamptonshire circuit.
So, if you want to see history in the making, you can now get tickets for next year's race. Here’s what you need to know.
When and where is the British Grand Prix?
The British Grand Prix takes place every year at the Silverstone circuit in Northamptonshire. Here are the details of this year’s race:
The event is set across three days: The first day (Friday, 5th July) includes the free practice sessions, the second (Saturday, 6th July) is for the qualifying session which determines which position the drivers will start in on race day. Then the third day (Sunday, 7th July) is, you guessed it, race day!
The circuit sits near the village of Towcester and is accessible by car (funnily enough!), train and coach. If you’re planning to drive you’ll have to pay for parking at either the official Silverstone car park, or Whittlebury Park over two miles away, which offers parking throughout race weekend.
You can also get the train to Wolverton, which has direct services from London Euston, Birmingham New Street and Northampton Rail Stations, although you’ll have to then arrange a taxi or bus from there. Stagecoach offers lifts to Silverstone during major race events from Milton Keynes station, which is 13 miles away.
