Silverstone report surge in ticket sales after being chosen as one of three venues to stage pioneering F1 sprint race to decide starting grid at British Grand Prix

Silverstone recorded a bounce in sales after Sportsmail’s revelation that the British Grand Prix would trial Formula One’s all-new sprint race on the Saturday of the event in July. Sportsmail reported late Wednesday that the British Grand Prix would trial Formula One’s all-new sprint race. ‘Crowds on the Friday and Saturday of our race weekend are always well attended. We rank fifth or sixth for those days against attendances anywhere else in the world for their race day, and we can only expect that the added interest of the sprint race format — sprint qualifying as it is called — will enhance the spectacle. The order from qualifying will set the grid for a half-hour sprint race, which in turn will determine the grid for the grand prix on Sunday.
