British Grand Prix - A fabulous Day Out

The Formula 1 British Grand Prix is one of the oldest continuously staged Formula One World Championship Grand Prix's - a record shared with the Italian Grand prix. It is a breathtaking experience... taking in the sight of thousands of British fans, fast and noisy cars performing at their limits and everything that surrounds the glamorous F1 world.

The Silverstone circuit has been hosting the race since 1950, although over the years it has been shared with other circuits including Brands Hatch. Since 1987 it has been exclusively at Silverstone and is now contracted to remain until 2026. The circuit has gone through much development in recent years to improve all aspects of the experience for visitors and drivers while retaining all that is unique about Silverstone.

British drivers over the years have had considerable success at the Grand Prix particularly during the 1990's but more recently Lewis Hamilton's win in 2008 is the solitary success. In 2012 a patriotic crowd will be cheering the 3 British drivers Lewis Hamilton, Jensen Button and Paul di Resta.

Alongside the on-track action visitors enjoy entertainment, air displays, E-Zones, the F1 Trade Mall and post race party.
