Parking Information 
Parking is free of charge in the main spectator car parks, located by the main entrance off the A20. These will be well signposted.

Please note that Southbank parking (for the grass bank opposite the rear of the pits) is £5 per car, per day on Saturday and Sunday (this will not be available on Friday). Places will be allotted on a first come, first served basis.

Blue badge holders should follow public signage for disabled parking, or alternatively please speak to a member of staff on arrival.

The campsite will open at midday on Thursday 14 October and close at midday on Monday 18 October. Weekend ticket holders who haven't pre-booked camping can pay on the gate.

If you have chosen to have advance tickets posted (not print-at-home) you will need to bring the originals to the circuit as copies and receipts are not accepted.

All advance tickets have now been dispatched and were sent by either Recorded or Special Delivery, meaning a signature is required. If you haven't received them, contact us urgently at tickets@msv.com

Please have your tickets separated before arriving at the gate.

Print-at-home/e-tickets are emailed on the day of purchase. If you haven't received yours, you can access them by logging on to your MSV account. Your order confirmation email will not gain you admission to the venue - e-tickets must be printed or scanned from a mobile device.

Here to help
Excellent customer service is important to us, and all our staff are trained to help you make the most of your visit to the circuit. Whether you need assistance to find a lost child or to locate a disabled toilet, please ask one of the many uniformed staff you will see throughout the venue.

The safety and security of all our visitors is paramount, so please be aware you may be subject to bag searches and security checks at our venue. We would also politely ask, as an additional security measure, that you put luggage tags on all of your bags detailing your name and mobile number, so that it can be easily identified. Please do not leave your bag or personal belongings unattended at any time.

How we continue to keep you safe: COVID-19
Whilst our motor racing circuits are outdoor venues, with spectators dispersed over a very wide area, we recognise the importance of maintaining sensible precautions to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. We have therefore retained many of the protocols that have been in place since we welcomed spectators back again in May. Click here for details.
