Formula 1’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone will host a full-capacity crowd next month after it was added to the UK Government’s Events Research Programme.

The Silverstone team will work closely with experts from the ERP and the director of public health in Northamptonshire on the specific conditions of entry that will enable the event to operate safely.

Ticket details for the British Grand Prix, which will take place from July 16-18, will be announced in the next 10 days. A full-capacity crowd would mean that around 140,000 fans could attend the event, which would mark a record in the UK since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.

Spectators will be required to show proof of a negative lateral flow test taken within 48 hours of arrival at Silverstone, or proof of full vaccination with the second dose having been received at least 14 days prior to the first day of attending the British Grand Prix.
