Silverstone has announced it wants a ‘vaccine passport’ system so the circuit can hold 100% fan capacity at the British Grand Prix. It has joined sports like football (soccer) and rugby in calling for this.

In an open letter to the British Parliament, the various sports demanded to know when fans could fill the grandstands again.

“Looking ahead to June 21st, we support the government’s ambition to secure the full return of fans, without restrictions if possible. Of necessity, this will depend upon the government agreeing that it is safe to lessen or drop social distancing requirements.”

“It is important that we have certainty as soon as possible on the form this guidance will take so we can plan efficiently and effectively with many big sporting events scheduled for late June and onwards.”

The British Grand Prix is due to be held from July 16th-18th.
