British Grand Prix confirms new four-day schedule

Wednesday 28th June, 2017 - 11:19am


Silverstone will operate a new four-day timetable

British Grand Prix organisers have announced the new four-day timetable for next month’s Silverstone Formula 1 weekend.

The revision has been prompted by a desire to ease congestion in the British GP schedule.

A similar four-day schedule has been run successfully at the season opening Australian Grand Prix.

Silverstone has now confirmed that gates will open at 2pm on Thursday, with the F1 Fan Zone up and running as well as track action in the form of Formula 2 and GP3 practice sessions.
