Wheelchair accessible viewing is available throughout the site. The locations of these areas have been carefully considered to give some of the best views of the circuit. These areas will be clearly indicated on the site plan nearer the event.
These terraces are solely for the use of disabled persons and in particular wheelchair users, with one friend/carer. In some of these areas there is a seat provided for the accompanying person. On the terrace areas carers are asked to please bring their own folding chair. There will be stewards present to assist wheelchair users to access and egress in the case of an emergency exit.
Event Mobility Charitable Trust will be providing electric scooters and manual wheelchairs for the use of disabled, elderly and mobility impaired visitors to the Silverstone Classic 2015.
To reserve an electric scooter or manual wheelchair you can book on line at www.eventmobility.org.uk, print out an advance booking form from the website or contact the office on 01386 725391 to request a form to be posted to you. Please be aware that advance bookings cannot be made by phone.
Reserved electric scooters or wheelchairs can be collected in Car Park 50A near to the main entrance and the Blue Badge Disabled car parking area.
The charity operates entirely from the generosity of donations and any further contribution would be greatly appreciated.

We will have a large number of disabled car parking spaces located in car park 50a. To park in any disabled car parking space, a blue disabled badge must be displayed in your vehicle.
All our permanent disabled toilets are fitted with RADAR locks to prevent access to any non disabled persons. Keys are available to purchase here.

Site Layout and Ground Conditions
The site is spread over 850 acres some of which are fields. There are some hard-standing and tarmac areas together with stone paths and trackway, but the site can be very difficult to negotiate. The weather can have a massive impact on how easy it is for people to move around the site, please take this into consideration when deciding on what equipment to bring with you.
