This is silly, especially when I can go to Circuit De Catalunya for half the price! I can actually make a full holiday out in Spain for the money of a Silverstone General Admission and camping!!!
However they have given those choosing grandstands a better choice this year, by giving your specific areas in accordance to price! With a better look at what you are paying for! With the use of Ticket bands and panoramic views of that band!
Frankly the size of the price increases are appalling but I suppose they think they will sell out whatever they charge – and I’m sure they will.
I disagree that you necessarily have a better choice when choosing grandstands.
Last year you were able to select individual seats – it doesn’t look as if you can do that anymore.
And at these prices you should be able to!
I did Silverstone in 09 and 10 but this year I did the european gp in Valencia, the total cost of a 4 night break staying in a nice hostel with race tickets and flight was 350 quid. This year i have worked out Spa or Monza would cost something between 300-350 quid for a trip.
The price of SIlverstone tickets is the reason I have started to look elsewhere
I’ve been going to Silverstone of the last 14 years and agree the 30% increase in ticket prices for next year is crazy. I have booked but if this carries on not sure how much longer can go for. Not sure I agree that European races are cheaper though. Was in Spa 2010 and tickets were more expensive, add that to the petrol, camping and ferry costs and more expensive for sure. Same with Monza, was there 2011 and am going this year. The tickets are cheaper but add flights, hotel and food (really expensive to eat out in Italy) and again more expensive that Silverstone.
