The Silverstone circuit has added two new grandstands to increase the capacity for this year's British Grand Prix.
The two new grandstands – the Luffield Complex Grandstand and Silverstone Grandstand – will be located in Luffield Complex and on National Pits Straight respectively, adding over 3,500 seats. Organizers said ticket sales are up 10 percent compared to last year.
"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," said managing director Richard Phillips. "Increasing our capacity will enable even more fans to experience the spectacle, excitement and drama of Formula 1 at Silverstone.
"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."
