General Admission

This ticket provides access to general areas located around the circuit. Seating is mostly on grassy mounds and views vary greatly. We recommend getting to the track early in order to claim a good spot. The general admission ticket is a great option for guests who prefer the flexibility to move around the circuit. The ticket includes a roving seat in available grandstands for Friday and access to the General Admission areas.

GRANDSTANDS 

The International Pits Straight Grandstand runs along the outside of the main straight, and is a great place to watch the adrenalin of the pre-race grid preparations, the dramatic race start, and see the winner take the chequered flag before celebrating on the podium.
This is a fantastic spot for speed lovers, as you will see the cars exit the final right-hander at Club, before blasting past you down the main straight. The cars here push 200 mph making this a truly spectacular grandstand, filled with the roar of the engines. You will also have a great overview of the pit lane and the stunning pit lane buildings, making this is an excellent place to follow the evolution of pit strategies, and to watch the skill of the pit crews

Becketts Grandstand offers a fantastic view of quite simply one of the most iconic and exciting sectors in all of F1. You will enjoy a clear view all the way to the entry of the Maggots S bend, and through the increasingly steep S bend of Becketts, and all the way to the exit onto the Hangar straight at Chapel. This is an exceptional spot to enjoy a panoramic view of this section showcasing” the incredible high-speed cornering capability of modern F1 cars. They stick to the tarmac as though on rails, changing direction dramatically as they weave through the S bends.

In Club Corner, you have a great view of the winners’ podium, as well as a spectrum from Stowe all the way to Vale into the International Pits Straight.

Seats in Luffield Grandstand offer a great view over this famous tricky right-hander, where the cars slow to just 65 mph as they hug the apex. You will see the cars enter the mid-speed Brooklands left-hander, an overtaking spot,  before braking hard for this bend, before accelerating hard on exit, and around Woodcote. This is a great spot to see the varied performance of a modern F1 car, overlooking some of the most famous corners in all of F1, with overtaking spots, and hard acceleration and braking zones.

Seats in the Copse  Grandstand offer a view of the short braking zone on the entry to this famous high-speed right-hander, allowing you to see the impressive performance of a modern F1 car, sweeping through this critical corner at incredible speed thanks to aerodynamic grip. You will also have a good view of the exit of the high-speed right-hander at Woodcote, and the blast down the National Pits Straight, and the first part of the exit of Copse which leads down to Maggots.
