Silverstone Circuit, the home of British Grand Prix, will be allowed to operate with full capacity for the July 18 British Formula One GP, it has been announced.
The last pre-pandemic race held at the circuit with spectators in 2019 had witnessed a attendance of 351,000.
Although, it had hosted two races in 2020 but both were hosted without any spectator due to the pandemic.
Notably, the upcoming race will be the biggest of any sporting event in Britain since the COVID-19 pandemic started in March last year.
On the other hand, Formula One chief executive Stefano Domenicali said: “It is fantastic news that Silverstone will be a full capacity event.”
“It will be an incredible weekend with hundreds of thousands of fans being there to see our first ever Sprint event on Saturday and the main event on Sunday,” he added.
“This is something we have all been working towards for months and I cannot wait to welcome a full capacity crowd back to Silverstone this July,” said Silverstone managing director Stuart Pringle.
“Many of our fans rolled their tickets over from 2020 but they are now well placed to enjoy what is sure to be one of the highlights of the summer.”
