Elite sport – as ratified by the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport – can continue behind closed doors during England’s four-week country-wide lockdown, which is due to begin this Thursday. British GT has been granted this elite status by the national governing body, Motorsport UK.

The Silverstone 500 was already due to take place behind closed doors, while SRO Motorsports Group and British GT’s organising club, the BRSCC, have worked tirelessly throughout the season to implement a covid-secure environment. 

Covid measures will prevent spectators from attending British GT’s #SilverstoneShowdown. However, fans around the world can watch the season finale live on British GT’s Facebook page and website, as well as SRO’s GT World Youtube channel, at 12:50 GMT on November 8. The showdown will see Jenson Button take part in his Jenson Team Rocket Honda NSX.
