Early bird tickets for Silverstone Classic to go on sale

Published 04 October 2017

Super early bird tickets for next year’s Silverstone Classic will go on sale next week. Prices will be frozen at 2017 levels when the tickets are released on Monday, 16 October. Now entering its 28th season, next year's event will celebrate 70 years of the British Grand Prix.

Established as one of the world’s best motoring events, the classic regularly boasts grids packed with historic competition machinery, record-breaking anniversary parades, plus in-field displays putting the spotlight on more than 10,000 classic cars.

Live music from popular bands and a dazzling array of family entertainment all add to the annual high-octane extravaganza, which now regularly attracts more than 100,000 visitors. 

Staged at the country’s premier motor racing circuit, the 2018 Silverstone Classic will be held between 20-22 July, two weeks after the British Grand Prix. The date remains provisional, though, until the Formula One World Championship calendar is rubber-stamped by the FIA in December.

GT cars will race into the sunset at the 2018 Silverstone Classic.

The introduction of Super Early Bird tickets is a new innovation and offers festival-goers the opportunity to purchase their 2018 tickets at 2017 prices, providing up to a 20 per cent discount on Standard tickets. Thereafter, a range of early bird tickets will be available for those purchasing between 1 January and 31 March. From 1 April admission will be available in advance via Standard tickets.

All advance tickets will give access to both Silverstone racing paddocks, all open trackside grandstands, the live music concerts, air shows, fun fair rides and the majority of the family entertainment on offer.

The 2018 on-track programme will embrace all of Europe’s leading historic categories, including an incredible array of iconic Formula One cars marking 70 years since Silverstone’s first British Grand Prix held in 1948.

Next year’s event will also put a special spotlight on more than 60 years of epic Le Mans history with three spectacular showdowns run back-to-back. The new super early bird adult tickets start from £35 and the cost of the three-day weekend ticket remains at £99 for those purchasing before the end of the year.

Full details of all 2018 ticket prices are available on the website.
