On the Silverstone website it says that the General Admission ticket includes “Roving on Friday”. Does this mean I have a generic non-grandstand ticket for the friday practices etc? I go to the UTC anyway and so have the friday off and was thinking about buying friday tickets separately from my Sunday tickets but I want to be sure what they mean before I do anything.27th January 2016, 10:38 at 10:38 am #311840AnscombesParticipant
Your general admission ticket for Friday I believe will allow you to access most of the grandstands except Club Silverstone. Might be worth a quick call to them to double check27th January 2016, 10:42 at 10:42 am #311841FJBH10Participant
So the Friday ticket is free with the Sunday one?
I will probably call them as well.13th April 2016, 14:00 at 2:00 pm #317509AnscombesParticipant

First time visiting Silverstone, what is the best way to get to the track. We’re looking at an AirBnB in and around the silverstone area. Is there parking available with your ticket? is it extra? is there bussing available?
Thanks!26th May 2016, 18:12 at 6:12 pm #320899Mhairi NisbetParticipant
I’m going to Silverstone for the second time this year but we are making our own way there.
I was wondering if anyone can help explain the bus situation? Silverstone say there are local services and will supply the timetables? But when?!
Are these reliable or am I better getting the megabus?
Thanks! Mhairi28th May 2016, 0:36 at 12:36 am #320986Alianora La CantaParticipant
There is a regular bus from Northampton to Silverstone (#88) on every day except Sunday on regular weeks. However, the traffic situation on Grand Prix weeks means this will have a different route. There may also be #88 buses laid on for that specific Sunday, but I cannot guarantee this.
I would recommend Megabus, if only because that will definitely run on Sunday and definitely stop at a convenient point near the track. It may even be cheaper – the #88 bus is £5.75 each way…
