FANTASTIC news, as NHS key workers (and anyone who holds a Blue Light Card) are to be recognised with the chance to win a free ticket to Silverstone events - whether the MotoGP weekend or F1. 

The Blue Light Card is available to those working in the NHS, emergency services, armed forces and social care. Those who hold the card will be able to enter a ballot for 3500 MotoGP tickets, with 300 available for race day.

Entries are free, and exclusive to those with the Blue Light Card, with the website also stating that discounted tickets are available to events in addition to the balloted free tickets. 

Silverstone MotoGP weekend: 27th - 29th August 2021

Entries to the MotoGP ballot must be in by July 25th, with the alternative events having deadlines of: F1 - May 25th, Silverstone Classic - June 27th.

Quoted on crash.net, Stuart Pringle (Silverstone managing director) said:

“Working with Blue Light Card gives us the reassurance that our tickets will reach those we are all so indebted to and we hope as many as possible can join us this summer to experience live motorsport, something we have all missed over the past 12 months.

“The last year has been a challenge for everyone but particularly for those working on the frontline, putting their lives at risk, to keep our country and population safe under very difficult circumstances.

"I hope that this gesture goes some way to demonstrating to this community that their work is very much appreciated.”

More of this, please - I think we can all agree that rewarding key workers like this is the absolute bare minimum, and should be done far more often.
