Silverstone has announced that tickets for this year's British Grand Prix have almost sold out a month ahead of the race.

All but one of the circuit's grandstands are sold out for the Sunday, while the last general admission tickets were sold on Monday.

The only race-day tickets still available are in Vale Grandstand which, in addition to offering great views of the circuit, now overlooks the paddock, as well as the new pitlane entry into the Silverstone Wing complex. Silverstone expects the few remaining tickets in Vale to sell out over the next seven days.

However, individual and family tickets are still available for the Friday and Saturday, although these too are in demand. In 2010 crowds of 85,000 and 105,000 attended on Friday and Saturday respectively.

Tickets for the weekend are still available at www.silverstone.co.uk, or by calling 0844 3728 300.
