Silverstone F1 test tickets on sale for ??12

Felipe Massa, Ferrari, Silverstone test, 2007, 470150

This is probably only useful for readers in Britain I’m afraid! If you want to see F1 cars in action in Britain for a lot less than the price of a Grand Prix ticket, you can get into the pre-Grand Prix Silverstone test from as little as ??12 (although that is an increase of ??2 on last year if I remember correctly).

The test is on 24-26th June and you can get a ticket for all three days from ??30. Tickets will not be being sold at the gate on the day. To get yours contact Silverstone circuit.

    Thanks for letting us know about the change in ticket availability, I was just going to turn up on the day.

    Guys I cannot reiterate what Keith says here, this is the best value for money, If you cannot get the the race weekend or can afford to go, get along to one of these days it’s bargain

    Seconded. You don’t get full access to the full track but if you’re an amateur photographer and want to get some piccies of the cars, really recommend it. Luffield’s open and it’s a great place for pictures.

    Will definitely be going this year. £12 is still great value for what’s on offer. Now to decide on which day out of three to go!

    Went when it was free in 2005? I think. Saw one of Nico’s first tests for us. Shame it was only us and Jordan there, though.

    Hi Andy – these were written for the Grand Prix but they should give you a few useful tips:

    British Grand Prix – where to watch
    British Grand Prix – what to take

    Thanks for those above links, ive only been to Silverstone once before, for the Ferrari Anniversary last year.

    Someone mentioned online that because of building work only Farm was open to the public for testing with standard tickets, thus we could only sit there. Does anyone know if this is true?

    Last year you couldn’t get to the south end of the circuit, I’m not sure what the situation is this year.

  9. Dank said on 17th June 2008, 18:10

    Farm is only open to those with tickets as the rest of the circuit is being prepared for the GP. Bit disappointing that we won’t be able to roam around for good vantage points.

    Received my tickets this morning. I’ll be going Thursday. Wasn’t impressed that they neglected to actually provide me with any information about testing at all, so one phonecall later…

    Gates open 8am. Testing between 9am-1pm and then 2pm-5pm.

  10. Rob C said on 17th June 2008, 18:15

    Thanks for the swift response. Your information Dank is very useful indeed.

    It is a little disappointing that we are only going to be around Farm, im guessing that is why tickets were so limited.

    What is the space/viewing like there?

  11. Dank said on 17th June 2008, 18:18

    Farm isn’t too bad. In fact, I bought silver grandstand tickets for the Grand Prix situated in the very same place!

    The cars bomb it up from Club and there is optimum viewing time as they negotiate round Abbey.

    For those wanting to know whereabouts it’s situated on the circuit:

  12. Rob C said on 17th June 2008, 18:20

    That sounds fantastic for my first proper F1 up-close-and-personal racing experience.

    I can’t wait, only ordered my ticket today but the chap on the phone said it would be here for Friday. They have been selling like hotcakes!

    thanks for your help guys, much appreciated!

  14. Alli said on 18th June 2008, 14:15

    Does anyone know which teams will be attending?

    I go most years and know that usually the majority of the teams test – weather dependant!

  15. Tony said on 19th June 2008, 16:51

    Just checked the McLaren website and they have confirmed Heikki will be testing on Tuesday, Wednesday with Lewis testing on Thursday.
