UK Formula 1 Circuit Gains Event Security From G4S

G4S Secure Solutions (UK And Ireland) : 12 July, 2010  (Application Story)
G4S will provide guarding, perimeter security and traffic control for Silverstone Circuit in the UK under two year contract
G4S Events has been awarded a two year contract for the provision of event security services for both year-round and the major events portfolio for Silverstone Circuits. The contract is worth approximately £3.5m.

Under the contract G4S will be offering a broad range of services to ensure the right solution is delivered for each event, including; perimeter security and internal asset protection, access control, event security, grandstand stewarding, ticket/programme cash sales, paddock and hospitality security on event days, car parking and traffic control.

A major contract in the event industry, G4S will be supplying up to 1,300 employees at the peak of the motor racing season, including the high profile British round of the MotoGP, which was run at Silverstone for the first time this year in June, the FIM Superbike World Championship and, of course the Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix which takes place this weekend.

In alignment with the development aspirations of Silverstone's management team, G4S Events has begun to develop a proposal to mirror Silverstone's objectives to achieve improvements in service delivery.

This proposal is based on a professional partnership which matches Silverstone Circuits's investment as it looks to build upon its association with Formula 1. With unmatched breadth and depth of security and stewarding experience across a variety of sporting events, G4S is ideally placed to support Silverstone as one of the leading motorsport venues and host of world class events.

Commenting on the exciting win, Mark Hamilton, Managing Director, G4S Events said: "We are delighted to win this important high-profile contract and be given the opportunity to combine our event security capabilities and proven expertise in the sporting arena to provide the best possible security solution to "The Home of British Motor Racing". As leading brands in our respective fields, we are looking forward to building on our partnership and helping support Silverstone as it looks to position itself as a premium destination brand throughout the UK and beyond."
