Formula 1 fans will be able to indulge in a spot of tennis after the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
After the F1 race finishes at the Northants track, people will be able to watch the conclusion of the men’s singles final at Wimbledon on the big screens.
Traffic managers are hopeful fans will stay behind to watch, staggering vehicles leaving the circuit.
After the race Silverstone will also host a Grand Prix party featuring Alistair Griffin, a Blondie tribute and Eddie Jordan and the Robbers with guest appearances from many of the drivers.
It is hoped that the whole race day experience will prevent a big rush for the exits, once the big event is over in mid-afternoon.Ian Ledingham, the police traffic manager for the British Grand Prix, said: “Over the years, the emphasis on providing an entertainment package beyond the motor racing has kept large numbers of racegoers at the circuit until the evening.
“This in turn helps police and partners to more effectively manage traffic leaving the circuit, so that everyone can get on their way as quickly and safely as possible.
“The road improvements have also helped traffic flows in and out of Silverstone considerably.”
He added: “As at any large event or gathering, when a large volume of traffic looks to use a limited amount of road space, delays are inevitable and Silverstone is again expecting sell-out crowds on all three days this year.
“But providing motorists pay close attention to the signage, and follow given instructions, it should not be long before they are on their way.”
