Turn 18 – The final turn at Silverstone

Club Corner has always been one of the best places to sit on the Silverstone circuit for years. In the current circuit configuration, it is the last corner before the start/finish line. Club was re-profiled for the 2010 race. Instead of constant curve after Vale, leading onto the straight, it became a double apex corner which proved an interesting challenge of the F1 drivers.

View from Club Corner

The second apex is much tighter than the first. It’s partially blind and has the new pit wall on the inside. Accuracy is required and a clean exit essential to carry as much speed as possible across the start/finish line.

Drivers who get either apex wrong will be exposed to attack from behind as the cars approach the new turn 1: Abbey.

A great advantage of sitting at Club Corner is the amount of time you see the cars for. They first come into view on the exit of Stowe Corner and then the drop down into the Vale. This is also where the new pit entrance is located.

Most Club Corner tickets will offer views looking down the new pit lane which was under construction during the 2010 British Grand Prix.

Martin Townsend: You get a good view of the cars both on track and entering the pits.

Mark Brown: We sit there every year. Just can’t beat it!

    hi, i am trying to fit the perfect spot for my husband and his father to sit for the 2015 f1 race at silverstone. it is a surprise gift so i cannot ask them but £275 weekend ticket each is the maximum amount i want to spend. i am currently debating between stowe A and B as it is an overtaking corner but they are far from track so i wonder if the cheaper blocks at club corner would be better? is it an overtaking corner? please answer many thanks

      Hi Kirsty,
      I’m sure for £275 they won’t be disappointed on what ever you decide on. The left hand corner entering Club is a good overtaking spot and will also give them a view of the pit entry and some view of the pit straight depending on the chosen seats. It’s also worth considering Village which is another overtaking spot which is also the spot that lead to the spectacular Raikkonen crash.

    Hi, I am looking to book two tickets for me and my father for the 2016 Grand Prix. I would like to know where is the best block to be and which one offers the best view of the podium.

      Hi Matthew, for the podium you need International Pit Straight or Club. I would book early and recommend you add a comment to your booking requesting seats closer to the Podium area. It’s not guranteed but the resellers try hard to meet fan requests. I’d recommend trying BookF1.com i you ready to book now as they have an Early Bird Discount offer until 6th August.

    hi I have booked two 3 day tickets in club corner for 2016 seats CCN/CC3/A/0389 and 0390. Please could you tell me if I have chosen good seats please. Will we have a view of the podium and of the entry to pits? Also as it looks like we may be on the first row (a?) , is this a good row to be seated on or can the view be restricted? … I am worried gonna get things wrong, it’s my hubbies 50th birthday president and once in a lifetime (cost!) .. Many thanks

      Hi Lisa.

      You are you husband are going to have a brilliant time. You are in the best grandstand and although the views can differ slightly block to block you are are going to be absolutely fine where you are. I estimate you will have a good view of the podium and pit entry, and of course any overtaking into Club Corner itself!

      Enjoy your weekend and happy 50th birthday to your partner.

      James

    I’m planning to sit at Club A, Farm or Stowe and am hoping to have the cars in sight for as long as possible, ideally with them coming towards me rather than see the back end of them. Is Club A the best one of the 3 to go for do you think?

      Hi Sharon

      I think there all good choices! Club has good views of Vale corner and you can see the entrance to the pits and the podium too.

    Please could you advise if Club A is a good place to book tickets for the formula 1 for July next year. I am coming with my sister to celebrate my 60th birthday.

      Hi Julie,

      Great choice, although the stand isn’t covered. Good views of the cars as they enter Vale and the slow left, right chicane.

    i’m planning to buy club Silverstone tickets to see the 2016 race. What are the good seats to book with good views? can you see the pit / podium from club Silverstone? most importantly, is purchasing club Silverstone tickets worth the money? Any advice would be most appreciated

    thanks

      Hi Jo, Club Silverstone is at Becketts, so you won’t be able to see pit or podium from here. These seats do provide views of the cars from Copse to the Hanger Straight. The Club Silverstone ticket includes entrance to a separate area behind the Grandstand. The facilities include a variety of food options, not just fast food, a seating area and separate toilets.

    Hi
    I’m looking at booking club corner seats but which block should I choose – giving me block 2 – 4 all at same price so I don’t know if any are better than the others!
    Many thanks!

      Simon Purnell says

      Hi Mel, Block 4 is the closest to the entry of the corner. You can request your preferred block when booking but it can’t be guaranteed.

    I’ve been recommended club corner 1 to buy tickets but only blocks 3 and 4 are available. Which block would offer the best view? Would you be able to see the podium from those blocks? At all? Thank you

    • Reply
      Simon Purnell says

      Hi Angela, Block 1 has the best view as it’s opposite the podium which is on the end corner of the Silverstone Wing. Blocks 3 and 4 will be more limited but it’s still one of the best parts of the circuit.

      Hi Yvonne, You’re correct the further you are to the left the better view you have of the straight as well as the Vale section.

      Hi Josh, Availability for Club A is good at the moment. Difficult to say what it will be like in December. It’s often a busy month for sales due to Christmas.

    Looking to come to 2017 with seat in club corner. Looking to book soon but not sure if there’s a choice of blocks to choose from and if so which one gives best view. Need 3 seat, 1 being for an elderly person(aged 80) so wondering if access to these seats is good for them.

    Hi

    I am looking to buy tickets for 2018 and my husband and daughter seem to want international pits straight but reading our comments I am now considering Club corner platinum. My daughter is keen to get to see the podium at the end as well as the pits. Is the best place to purchase the official F1 site? Please recommend and also seat or row numbers if these are available to choose anywhere. Thank you for your help.
