Race organisers for this weekend’s 2012 Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix have lifted the restrictions they were forced to put in place on Saturday and are encouraging all fans with tickets to attend Sunday’s event.

Heavy rain caused serious traffic and car parking problems on Friday and fans with normal parking tickets were asked to miss qualifying on Saturday in order to ensure that the race day could proceed with minimal disruption.

“While it was an extremely difficult decision, and one that will have disappointed people that had to stay away, the decision gave the circuit a fighting chance to repair and get previously unsafe car parks into a state that can be used on race day,” the race organisers explained in a statement.

“The circuit has implemented further contingency plans throughout Friday night and Saturday. As a result, it is now in a stronger position to accommodate all ticket holders coming to Silverstone on Sunday.”

Fans planning to attend have been advised to leave plenty of time to arrive at the circuit and to wear sensible clothes and footwear.
