On hand at the British Grand Prix

INEOS Hygienics on hand as fans return to Silverstone for the British Grand Prix

INEOS Hygienics will be on hand at the Formula 1 Pirelli British Grand Prix as fans return to the iconic Silverstone Circuit for the first time since 2019.

As one of the government’s test events to allow fans back under the Events Research Programme, Silverstone has partnered with INEOS Hygienics to provide hospital-grade sanitiser to people attending the event. 50ml travel-sized bottles will be available for free around the circuit for fans to use and take home, as well as a number of INEOS touchless Sanitiser Dispensers in key locations.

INEOS Hygienics provided the NHS with free hand sanitiser at the start of the pandemic to meet the global shortage. As elite sport returned, INEOS Hygienics partnered with some of the world’s best sports teams, including the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team.

By providing the team with touchless dispensers and sanitiser, it has helped to keep Lewis Hamilton, Valterri Bottas and the wider team safe at the factory and the track, so they can keep racing.

Silverstone is expecting to have in the region of 350,000 fans over the course of the event – the first time crowds have been at the circuit for a Grand Prix race since 2019. Silverstone has also put in place a number of other COVID protocols to allow fans to return, including the use of COVID certification measures and a heightened cleaning regime.

Alex Lacey, Operations Director at Silverstone, said: “Being able to welcome fans back to Silverstone and to the Formula 1 Pirelli British Grand Prix is a really special moment for us. The safety of fans remains our priority which is why we’ve partnered with INEOS Hygienics whose sanitisers are used and trusted by hospitals across the globe and some of the world’s leading sports teams, including the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team.”

George Ratcliffe, COO at INEOS Hygienics, added: “We’ve supported frontline workers and elite sports teams throughout the pandemic to help keep them safe on the job and now we can do it for sports fans too. The British GP is such an iconic moment in the sporting calendar so to be able to allow fans back to the circuit is a great step forward. Now, more than ever, is a time when we all need to keep practising good hand hygiene to prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria as the world opens up even more. We’re proud to be on hand to support the fans’ safe return to Silverstone.”
