2017 Silverstone Classic Date Change

Change necessary after British Grand Prix date switch - World’s largest classic motor racing festival now set for 28-30 July 2017 - Full refunds available for ticket-holders now unable to attendChange necessary after British Grand Prix date switch - World’s largest classic motor racing festival now set for 28-30 July 2017 - Full refunds available for ticket-holders now unable to attend

With the FIA World Motor Sport Council ratifying a revised date for the British Grand Prix, next summer’s Silverstone Classic is now confirmed for the weekend of 28-30 July 2017 – a week later than the provisional date originally announced.
 
The UK’s round of the Formula One World Championship had initially been set for Sunday 9 July but, with the German Grand Prix no longer on the 2017 F1 calendar, the British event has now been rescheduled for Sunday 16 July.
 
The massive operational complexities involved in the organisation of the two major international events – both attracting more than 100,000 visitors – make it impossible for Silverstone to host its two most popular annual attractions on consecutive weekends.
 
“We’re sorry to have to make this change but, unfortunately, it’s due to factors outside of our control,” said Nick Wigley, CEO of Silverstone Classic organiser Goose Live Events.
 
Tickets already purchased for the 2017 Silverstone Classic will be valid for the revised dates, while ticket-holders now unable to attend due to the date change have until 28 February to request a full refund. Details of this process have been emailed to those who have already taken advantage of the Early Bird ticket offer.
 
Early Bird tickets for the 2017 Silverstone Classic are on sale, with prices for adults starting from just £35 and the cost of the three-day weekend ticket remaining at £99, making them a great Christmas gift. Details of all ticket prices, as well as hospitality and camping options are now available on the silverstoneclassic.com website.
 
Full information about the 2017 Silverstone Classic entertainment programme – including more exciting new races, special car club celebrations and live music performers – will be announced in the coming weeks. All the latest news will be available at silverstoneclassic.com and via its social media platforms.
