- Big savings for those booking before the end of March
- Entrance by advanced tickets only
- Record ticket pre-sales and car club registrations
This summer’s award-winning Silverstone Classic is all set to be another record-breaking blockbuster. Highlighting the massive event’s ever-increasing popularity, advanced ticket sales for what’s already the World’s Biggest Classic Motor Racing Festival are at unprecedented levels, with record numbers taking full advantage of the special ‘Early Bird’ discounts currently on offer.
Those booking by 31 March 2014 can save up to 15 per cent on adult tickets – which give access to the entire festival site – now available from just £33. A spiraling number of people are taking advantage of the multi-day ticket savings and onsite accommodation options including camping, bell tent glamping and hotel rooms to stay at Silverstone for the entire action-packed three-day event.
Last year’s Classic was the biggest to date, with more than 90,000 enthusiasts of all ages flocking to Silverstone to savour what was voted the ‘Motorsport Event of the Year’ at the third International Historic Motoring Awards (IHMA). The non-stop family entertainment was topped by 23 eye-catching races featuring a world record entry of 1113 amazing racing cars spanning eight decades of motor sport history.
The 2014 race line-up promises to be every bit as evocative and, with more car clubs than ever before registering for in-field displays, last July’s best ever total of 9000 classic cars on show could be surpassed in July.
Other confirmed highlights include glittering demonstrations and parades to mark the centenary of the magical Maserati marque, as well as the Golden Anniversary of Ford’s legendary Mustang – the world’s best-selling ‘classic’ car of all time.
Tickets will only be available in advance and the Classic is sticking to its popular ‘access all areas’ policy. Offering great value, all tickets grant admission to free parking, both race pits and paddocks, trackside grandstands, fun fair rides, air displays and live music concerts on Friday and Saturday evening which this year will be topped by Canned Heat and Bonnie Tyler.
Those booking before the end of March can save almost 15 per cent on three-day weekend tickets, which are priced at £95 rather than £110. Similar discounts are available on all adult tickets. Child (aged 6 to 16) admission tickets are only £5.50 and those aged under 6 year are free. To avoid confusion, the ‘booking fee’ is now included in the price with only a small single transaction fee added to cover postage (£1.95 for standard delivery).
“Every year the Classic just gets bigger and better which means our tickets offer ever-increasing value for money – even more so for those maximising our Early Bird discounts by booking before the end of March,” said Nick Wigley, Event Director. “We firmly believe in letting everyone experience everything – that’s why our tickets are all-inclusive and thus offer not just fantastic trackside viewing for those wishing to follow what’s an amazing programme of superb races, but also free admission to race paddocks, all the fabulous classic car displays, the popular live music concerts plus the vast array of other top class entertainment.”
