Pit Lane open on Thursday for the first timeThis year, Silverstone is celebrating a very special landmark in its history, as the 2014 FORMULA 1 SANTANDER BRITISH GRAND PRIX (04 – 06 July) marks the 50th Grand Prix to be held at the circuit. Forming part of the celebrations, for the first time ever Silverstone will be opening the Formula 1® Pit Lane to fans on the Thursday before the British Grand Prix.
This will be free to all fans holding a Three Day Ticket to the British Grand Prix.

There will be five Pit Lane Walkabouts over the course of the day. A limited number of tickets are available for each Walkabout and will be allocated on the day. Further details will be announced in due course. Tickets are not available in advance of the day.
