F1: Silverstone increases capacity for GP by Virgil Ellipse
4th Apr 2012
The Silverstone circuit has added two new grandstands to increase the capacity for this year's British Grand Prix.

With ticket sales up ten per cent compared with last year, an additional 3,500 seats will be provided by the two new grandstands: the Silverstone Grandstand and the Luffield Complex Grandstand.

The Silverstone Grandstand is on the National Pits straight, while the Luffield Complex Grandstand, as the name suggests, is located on the outside of Luffield and features a rather complex entry system, which involves the ticket-holder completing a mini IQ test.

The procedure has been designed to "keep out the riff-raff" and should ensure that the grandstand is free from the type of idiot who (a) brings air-horns to the planet's loudest sport, (ii) hangs enormous flags where they obscure other fans' views, and (3) believes that supporting Ferrarsi is in any way socially acceptable.
