Regretting the fact that race day at Silverstone is sold out for the British Grand Prix? Frantically entering every competition going to win that “last available pair of tickets”?
That’s a great line from competition organisers but it’s also just spin. And possibly a bid to talk up the race to improve its chances of being held in 2010 is also in progress.
You might not be able to buy directly from the organisers any more, but there are plenty of race-day tickets still available from fans who are prepared to sell them perfectly legally through ticket exchanges.
So, where to look? One example of a fan-to-tan ticket exchange is Seatwave.com where, when we last looked, prices for race day started at £165 for the basic package and went up to not quite £900 for the full-on paddock and hospitality experience.
Or you could try GetMeIn.com – at time of writing their prices are in the approximate range of £200 to £300.
A third option is MyTicketMarket.com – it had the fewest available of the three when we checked, and prices were similar to GetMeIn with a range of around £200 to £330. But definitely still worth a look.
All three of these sites offer a secure service with a number of safeguards to ensure you get what you paid for in time for the event – or your money back. There is even cover for event cancellation or circumstances that might unexpectedly stop you attending.
So, if you want to be there – go on. What’s to stop you? Certainly not a lack of ticket availability.
