PostSubject: Silverstone won't cut capacity..(Formula 1 Racing)   Tue Jul 10, 2012 1:22 am

Silverstone chiefs won't consider cutting the
capacity for the British Grand Prix in wake of the problems experienced
at this year's event and have instead vowed to improve the venue's
infrastructure to ensure there is no repeat of the traffic chaos in

The heavy and persistent rain that hit Northamptonshire venue on
Thursday and throughout the opening practice day on Friday played havoc
with Silverstone's crowd arrival measures as waterlogged campsites and
car parks caused major delays getting fans onto the site and triggered
miles of traffic jams on the A43 bypass, which is the main access road
for the circuit.

With some fans already unable to get into the circuit in time to see
Friday's practice sessions, later that evening Silverstone advised
ticket holders with passes for the public car parks for Saturday's
qualifying day to stay away completely so that organisers could repair
the ground in order to accommodate the expected 125,000 crowd on race

Reflecting on the weekend's events on Sky Sports News the day
after what ultimately proved a dry race on Monday in front of a near
capacity crowd, Silverstone's Managing Director Richard Phillips
insisted the Saturday stay-away plea had ultimately been critical to
getting fans into the event on Sunday at all.
