Silverstone 500 to take place without public

29 September 2020

The Intelligent Money British GT Championship's blue riband Silverstone 500 event will be held behind closed doors on November 7/8.

As one of the UK’s major sports venues, Silverstone has been working to the guidance of the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and the safe return of spectators. The circuit has been unable to host fans since March but had been working hard behind the scenes to run British GT’s event with public. Both parties have waited for as long as possible to make this announcement but must now concede it is not possible to hold the event with spectators.

This weekend’s round at Snetterton will go ahead as planned with fans in attendance, while all three hours of the Silverstone 500 will be streamed live, free and unrestricted across British GT and SRO’s social media platforms.
