Knock 20% off the price of tickets
In order to be entitled to this discount, all you have to do is go onto the moneysupermarket.com Moto GP ticket discount page and click on the “get a motorbike insurance quote now” button. You will then be instructed to enter a valid bike insurance registration plate number and information about yourself, both of which are required in order to calculate bike insurance quotes.
Once this is complete, it will take just a couple of minutes for the website to retrieve bike insurance offers from some of the UK’s leading insurance companies. Remember to take note of the cheapest offer which is made available to you, as this will be required later on.
You should then phone up the Silverstone box office like normal on 0844 372 8260, but this time quote the letters “MSM-MGP”. It will then be requested that you provide the bike registration plate number which was used to calculate the insurance premiums and you will also be asked for the name of the insurance company that offered you the cheapest deal. Correctly answering both these questions will automatically entitle you to the 20% discount on tickets to the event which is taking place on the 12th June.
A great place for the race
The Silverstone circuit has been heavily renovated for this year’s event, with construction of a new £27 million pit and paddock complex having started in April 2010. It has been completed ahead of schedule, with Red Bull racing boss Christian Horner labelling it as “fantastic” and claiming that it puts “Silverstone right up with the best in the world.”
The new pit area has been built alongside Hangar straight which is on the opposite side of the track to the old complex. This was done so that racing went on uninterrupted throughout 2010, but this also means that the start/finish straight has been moved for this year’s event.
There will be eight British riders taking part in the 2011 event, all of whom will be hoping to christen the new facilities with a home victory. Cal Crutchlow is the only one of these riders who is contesting the top tier Moto GP championship, and has acquainted himself very well in his debut season for the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team.
However, perhaps the best hope of a home winner is 20 year old Bradley Smith who is contesting the Moto2 category this season. The young rider already has three wins to his name from the 125cc series and has been a prominent front runner so far. He will be hoping to please the fans at his home event.
