An update from the Silverstone Classic regarding COVID-19
We wanted to get in touch to update you on the situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) and the Silverstone Classic.
While the latest guidance from the UK Government is to stay at home over the coming weeks, we remain hopeful that the Silverstone Classic will go ahead in four months as planned, although COVID-19 may have some impact on how we run elements of the event.
We appreciate that this is an evolving situation, so in the unlikely event that we have to postpone the event from its current scheduled dates, we will determine a date with the Circuit as soon as possible to which we can postpone the event and we will publish details as a matter of priority. All tickets would remain valid.
In the meantime, we’ll continue to monitor the situation and follow the updates and advice given by the UK Government, the World Health Organisation and other public bodies. Wherever necessary we will be taking sensible precautions to help minimise the spread of the virus (our full team have been working from home since last week) and we will share updates in this regard over the coming weeks and months. Our FAQ’s are constantly updated here.
In light of the current situation, we have extended our Early Bird period so that it now applies until the end of April. We hope to be able to welcome you to our 30th anniversary event this year.
If you’re a member of a car club, you still have until the end of May to book your display package, but from the end of April our Standard rather than Early Bird prices will apply. If you’re looking for a little motorsport entertainment and escapism during the challenging days and weeks ahead, why not take a look at our YouTube channel. All races, in full, from last year’s event are here plus there’s highlights footage going back to 2016.
