Fans to cheer on Lewis from Silverstone

Grand Prix screening for 2009 British Grand Prix ticket holders

British  star  Lewis  Hamilton  will  have  the  support  of  sporting  fans  all  over  the  country  for  the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday 2 November when he will be focused on becoming the 2008 FIA FORMULA  1™  World  Champion. 

With  this  in  mind,  Silverstone  has  arranged  a  private screening of the Brazilian Grand Prix to be held in the BRDC Clubhouse and will be inviting 50 fans*, who have already booked their tickets to the 2009 FORMULA 1 SANTANDER BRITISH GRAND PRIX (19 - 21 June**), along with a host of special guests.

All  fans  that  have  already  purchased  tickets  for  next  year’s  British  Grand  Prix,  or  who  book before 17:00hrs on Wednesday 29 October, will be entered into a lucky draw to win entry tickets to this exclusive screening.

Watching the Sao Paulo race on a giant screen at Silverstone - the home of the British Grand Prix  and  scene  of  a  Lewis  victory  earlier  this  year  -  will  be  a  memorable  experience. 

As  the tension mounts fans will hope to witness Lewis  being crowned as the youngest ever Formula One  World  Champion.  With  Lewis  just  seven  points  ahead  of  nearest  rival  Felipe  Massa  the atmosphere among spectators at the BRDC Clubhouse will be electric.

Richard   Phillips,   Managing   Director   of   Silverstone   Circuits   Limited,   commented:   “It’s unbelievable to think how much Lewis has achieved in just two seasons in Formula One. He has become a real inspiration and he must now stay focused if he is to win the World Championship.

“I  think  there  will  be  an  enormous  amount  of  people  tuning  in  to  watch  the  end  of  season showdown to get behind Lewis. It would be  very special for all of us involved in British motor sport to witness the first British F1 champion since the President of the BRDC, Damon Hill, took the title in 1996. I will certainly be watching from the BRDC Clubhouse and look forward to what promises to be a great race and a great atmosphere among true race fans. “

At  the  British  Grand  Prix  earlier  this  year  the  support  Lewis  received  from  the  crowds  was almost  overwhelming,  and  we  would  be  very  proud  to  see  a  British  driver, as reigning World Champion, challenging for the title again at the 2009 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.” Tickets  for  the  2009  FORMULA  1  SANTANDER  BRITISH  GRAND  PRIX  are  on  sale  24 hours  a  day,  seven  days  a  week,  and  can  be  booked  at  silverstone.co.uk,  or  by calling 08704 588 300.
