Following good ticket sales for the 2012 Formula One British Grand Prix, Silverstone have made the move to boost the capacity by an additional 3,500.

They have done this by erecting two new grandstands in the Luffield Complex and on the National Pits Straight.

The stands will be called the Luffield Complex Grandstand and the Silverstone Grandstand.

‘We had fantastic crowds on all three days of last year’s British Grand Prix and interest in this year’s event has been even higher. Increasing our capacity will enable even more fans to experience the spectacle, excitement and drama of Formula 1 at Silverstone. Silverstone’s Managing Director Richard Phillips told Sky Sports.

In direct comparison to this time last year, ticket sales are up by an impressive 10%, with many existing grandstands having already sold out.

‘We pride ourselves on striving to provide the best experience for fans – with grandstands and General Admission areas offering exceptional views of the track, first class spectator facilities and a host of exhilarating off-track entertainment, the fans can expect another fantastic three days at this year’s British Grand Prix.’

Tickets for the two new stands are already on sale, as is a new ticket offer for general admission tickets on the Friday and Saturday, with fans able to purchase four tickets for the price of three.
