Formula 1 fans heading to Silverstone for the British Grand Prix have been given a £1 million thank you by circuit bosses.

The circuit is giving £10 back to every fan registered as a Silverstone customer and about 100,000 of the expected 140,000 people attending the event are thought to be members.

Patrick Allen, Silverstone’s managing director, said: “The Silverstone fans are the best in the world and are sure to raise the roof in support of the British drivers next weekend as we predict a record crowd.

“The support for the event has been overwhelming and as a reward we will give all the fans a £10 credit on their account which can be used against any Silverstone event, driving experience or gift voucher.

“Silverstone is the best attended three-day sporting event on the British calendar and we are looking forward to welcoming fans for what promises to be a great festival weekend of motor racing,” he added.

There are limited seats still available for this weekend’s event via the Silverstone box office.
