Silverstone is delighted to announce that tickets for the 2007 FORMULA 1(tm) British Grand Prix - taking place on 6-8 July, its traditional date in the F1 calendar - are now on sale.

In addition to freezing the cost of general entry, circuit bosses have introduced a number of exciting new initiatives for 2007, including entry on the Friday and Saturday of the British Grand Prix weekend from as little as £10 for children aged 12 and under 3

Silverstone bosses have also increased the number of price categories for next year's British Grand Prix, providing spectators with more choice and the opportunity to 'cherry-pick' their ticket price and seating position. Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Fan categories ensure a range of prices and increased options for F1 fans, with all seats priced flexibly according to their location around the world famous Formula One venue.

'Platinum' and 'Gold' tickets offer grandstand seating in prime viewing locations around the circuit, including seats at Copse - described by many of the drivers as one of the fastest, 'hold-your-breath' corners in the world. Tickets in the premium Platinum grandstands are available at £239 4 per adult if purchased during the Early Booking Offer and £125 per child, while Gold seats in 2007 are priced at an attractive £209 per adult and £115 per child.

The three day ticket offers fantastic value, while the ability to transfer tickets enables those who are unable to attend all three days to pass tickets on to friends and family. Not only does this make it possible for more people to enjoy the great British Grand Prix experience, but ticket holders can also potentially share costs.
