British GP confirms four-day 2017 schedule

British Grand Prix organisers have confirmed changes to the timetable of next month’s event to offer fans four days of track action.

As revealed by Motorsport.com last week, the revision has come about because F1 bosses want to ease congestion to an already-packed schedule.

Silverstone has now confirmed that gates will open at 2pm on Thursday, with the F1 Fan Zone up and running as well as there being track action from F2 and GP3.

Tickets for the Thursday have been put on sale at £40 for adults and £20 for children.

Those who have already bought weekend tickets will get access on Thursday too, but this will not include entry to a Travis music concert in the evening.
