Amid the recent terror attacks in London and Manchester, Silverstone has decided to raise the security levels to ensure that everybody attending has a safe and memorable time.

Fans entering the circuit will be searched and will also have their bags searched. This will make the process of entering the facility longer, however, it is all in the eye of public safety. Bags may be no larger than the standard rucksack, with a maximum capacity of 20 litres.

"As you approach the gates your bags will need to be accessible for searches so could we please ask that you have your coat and your bag open to facilitate a search," a statement read. "Please be patient if there are queues, and please cooperate with any security requests and searches. We aim to get you in as quick as we can. The less you bring the quicker you will get through."
