Over the past few days there has been some concern that the British Grand Prix wont be going ahead. While there is still speculation, there are reports that Crowds could be gathering at Silverstone for the British Grand Prix in just over 4 weeks. The government are due to make an announcement to delay "Freedom Day" where all restrictions are lifted but, for the Day after the race. However Silverstone may be an exception.
The Government and Silverstone have discussed designating the July 18 Formula One race, a crowd pilot to exempt it from the current cap on attendance on such events of 10,000 The 3.6 Mile track holds 70,000 seats but as most of the crowd travel by car, it may help their cause as people wont be bunching up onto public transport to get to the track.
Having lost unimaginable amounts of money last year having 2 race weekends with no spectators, the venue will be keen to get approval for the Grand Prix to go ahead while still making sure it is safe to do so. Otherwise there will be around 120,000 people (who have tickets) will be left disappointed not to be able to attend for another year.
