Ticket to ride

Action from the Silverstone Classic last year

Tickets for the 2019 Silverstone Classic go on sale on Thursday October 25 with significant Super Early Bird savings for those booking in 2018… plus the opportunity for fast starters to win a special ‘Golden Ticket’.

The ticket launch comes exactly two months before Christmas – a bonus for seeking festival gift inspiration – and nine months ahead of next summer’s Classic, the dates for which are July 26-28.

A wide range of Super Early Bird tickets is available for those buying before the end of the year. All tickets for the Classic must be bought in advance and the Super Early Bird offer represents savings of up to 22 per cent on standard tickets.

As last year, Super Early Bird adult admission starts at £35 with the price of the three-day weekend ticket also frozen at £99. Full details of all ticket prices – including Parc Fermé and Clubhouse hospitality packages, the RetroRun and camping – will be available at Members of car clubs wishing to take advantage of the event’s exclusive Car Club Display packages are encouraged to contact their Car Club Co-ordinator for details.

The ‘Golden Ticket’ allows benefits ranging from a hot lap around the full Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit on the Classic’s Preview Day to a ride in a course car during the event.

Full details of the on- and off-track family entertainment will be announced in coming months but the Classic will include a number of retro races, car club anniversaries plus live music celebrations on both Friday and Saturday evenings for those rocking and racing at the Classic.

As befits the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival, the event sets the gold standard when it comes to showcasing the cream of global historic action with around 1,000 race entries dating back to the glorious heydays of Formula One, GT, Touring and Sports cars.

The Super Early Bird offer is open until December 31. Thereafter, as in previous years, a range of Early Bird tickets will be available for those buying between January 1 and March 31. From April 1 admission will be available in advance via Standard tickets.

All tickets – which must be bought in advance – will give access to both Classic racing paddocks, all open trackside grandstands, the live music concerts, air shows, funfair rides and the vast majority of the family entertainment on offer.
