Diary of an F1 British Grand Prix weekend**
Friday - Practice for all race categories (F1 + support)
Saturday - Practice + Qualifying (all categories) - support group races
Sunday - F1 Race + support group races
What support groups are there at the British Grand Prix?
The weekend focus is on Formula 1 - however other race championships support the headline act.
Support groups include:
- Porsche Supercup
- GP3 - single seaters
- GP2 - single seaters
**Note: In 2017, Silverstone experimented with a revised programme that saw some support groups run on Thursday afternoon. We have yet to receive information about the schedule for 2018 but will update guests as necessary.
What about other entertainment?
Silverstone provide plenty of additional entertainment in addition to the on track action - including the Fan Zone, and concerts to bring an end to the race weekend. There is normally a fair ground and airborne arrivals throughout the weekend (past years have seen the Red Arrows, Vulcan, Blades and Red Devils as regular visitors). Full details will be announced close to the event.
Stunning, panoramic, race views
Our race viewing and hospitality options for the F1™ British Grand Prix are second to none!
From the Woodcote Suites to Formula One™ Paddock Club we have all of the main on-track facilities available, and with prices starting from less than £150pp there's no excuse not to experience the VIP options over race weekend.
Access at the Silverstone F1 GP
Please note that the only official way to get a pit lane walkabout is via the Formula One Paddock Club package which is available for a 2 or 3 day package. For Paddock Club please call us on 01273 256496 to discuss your requirements. Otherwise pit and paddock areas are closed and no access is available.
Getting around Silverstone
As you might expect, the Silverstone site is massive! There are a limited number of hospitality shuttles in operation over race weekend - generally from close to the Copse Tunnel (closest to the VIP car parks) towards the Brooklands, Woodcote and Drivers' Lounge/Paddock Club areas. Silverstone Six is just a few minutes stroll from Copse Tunnel. The new 1948 Club is practically beside the tunnel exit so probably only 5 minutes from car park to hospitality location.
Why buy Formula One packages from us?
We have been working at Silverstone for a number of years, providing hospitality at the Formula One British Grand Prix and other motorsport events in restaurant facilities run by the circuit and also with individual suite 'lease holders' - our preferred option as it enables us to offer a better quality of service.
Our experience and range of contacts enable us to secure 'team affiliated' F1 Paddock Club together with other 'hard to obtain' options for Silverstone's flagship race meeting - all with great viewing opportunities such as overlooking the first corner.
If you are looking for VIP packages at other Silverstone events then see our main site for Silverstone hospitality.
We also offer motorsport hospitality across most circuits in the UK, and can also source official packages for events such as WEC (including Le Mans), NASCAR, IndyCar, BSB, WSB and MotoGP.
