Few sporting occasions match the intensity, glamour and drama of the FORMULA 1 BRITISH GRAND PRIX, and whether you are a wide-eyed first timer or seasoned veteran the experience is breathtaking.
Nothing beats the atmosphere at Silverstone when a British driver takes to the circuit. In 2013, both Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button will be aiming to impress the loyal British fans at their home race and hoping to mount the steps of the Silverstone podium.
The British Grand Prix is the oldest race in the Formula 1 calendar, reaching its 63rd anniversary in 2013. Originally a World War II airfield, Silverstone has hosted the race regularly since 1950, and every year since 1987. The circuit, even after major revisions in 1991, is famous for being one of the fastest and most challenging tracks on the F1 calendar, testing even the best driver’s skills to the limit. After victory in front of his home fans in 2008, Lewis Hamilton will be looking to emulate this success again, whilst Jenson Button would love to win at Silverstone and join the list of elite British drivers to win in front of a home crowd, including Jackie Stewart, James Hunt, Nigel Mansell, Damon Hill and David Coulthard.
You’ll be in pole position to enjoy all the noise, excitement and atmosphere of this major sporting occasion on our superb value break!
