Winners of British GP Grandstand seats competition | James Allen on F1 – The official James Allen website on F1

Thanks very much to everyone who entered the British Grand Prix grandstand seats competition to win two pairs of tickets for this weekend, one for qualifying day and one for race day. We had almost 1,000 entries.

The seats are courtesy of Santander, the British Grand Prix sponsor and the backer of last week’s Fans’ Forum.

All you had to do to win the tickets for each day was to guess which row and which two seat numbers in the Copse A grandstand you would be sitting in.

We had a massive entry, with lots of people in the hunt for some last minute tickets to see the world’s best drivers in action.

The competition rules are that the first person posting the correct answer wins the prize and our winners were pretty quick off the mark.

Leonard Owen, entry number 206 correctly guessed that he and his guest will be enjoying the Grand Prix itself from Row F Seats 7 & 8. Afterwards they may watch the post race concert and even take in the World Cup final on the big screen, if they feel like it.

And Dan, entry number 433, had the foresight to guess that he will see the Red Bulls take on the McLarens and Ferraris for pole position from the unrivalled position of Row M, seats 23 & 24.

We will contact you at the email address you entered with to get a postal address and if you respond in time, the tickets will be sent out today.

You also get a voucher for a Kangaroo TV set, with which you can follow the action, the lap times and the team radios, as well as Crofty and Ant Davidson on Radio 5 Live. You also get a Park And Ride voucher and a refreshment voucher.

Have a great day!

    It’s kind of funny to think of all the people in the grandstand hunched over little screens, watching the race on TV.
