As hundreds of thousands of people prepare to visit West Northants for the British F1 GP at Silverstone, residents are being urged to familiarise themselves with the travel plan.

The event runs from Thursday, 30 June to Sunday, 3 July and organisers expect an attendance of 400,000 across the four days with both race day and Saturday already sold out.

As always, a one-way system will be introduced on the A43 between the M40 and M1 and extra traffic officers are patrolling the area to deal with any incidents.

On Saturday and Sunday, the A43 will be close to through traffic at Silverstone and a one-way system put in place to allow racegoers to enter the circuit in the morning between 7am and 1pm, and then leave when the one-way system is reversed in the afternoon between 1pm and 8pm.

A one-way system will be in place along the dualled section of the Dadford Road Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

There will be no disruption to bin collections as a result of the Grand Prix. However, residents in the south are asked to make sure their bins are out for 7am as collection crews may arrive at different times than usual due to the race traffic.
