Hilton Honors has launched what is, almost certainly, going to be the best value hotel ‘experiences’ redemption of 2024 – if you’re a Formula 1 fan.

You can get two tickets to a VIP party at Silverstone to watch the British Grand Prix on Sunday 7th July for just 125,000 Hilton Honors points for two people.

You can redeem on the Hilton Experiences site here.

Hilton British Grand prix party

Regular readers may remember that Hilton trialled this last year with an event on the Friday practice day. This year it has brought that back – you can go for 100,000 Hilton Honors points – but doubled down with an event on race day too.

Hilton operates the Hilton Garden Inn hotel which is built into the circuit at Silverstone, overlooking the Hamilton Straight. The hotel was built with a roof terrace to allow events like this to take place.

This is how the race day event is described:

Enjoy all day VIP hospitality with free-flowing food and beverages and unrivalled views of the start/finish line and the pit lane from one of the most exclusive parts of the track.

In addition to your experience, your day is inclusive of the following:

– Head to the Concert Zone to enjoy in person driver talks at The Main Stage
– Roll up your sleeves and challenge McLaren’s pit stop time at the official F1 Fanzone Pitstop Challenge
– Champion your inner racing driver and compete against Lando’s Silverstone lap record at the official F1 Fanzone Racing Simulators
– Explore historic parts of the track at your leisure and observe the iconic 180mph speed of Copse Corner
– Explore the Entertainment Village and Sports Zones
– Giant screen playing live action-packed racing

Please note this package does not include rail or airfare. Parking is limited, therefore complimentary shuttle buses will be available to and from Milton Keynes train station.

No children under 7 are allowed because, well, you’re on a roof. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

    First thing I do in the morning is always open up HfP, but starting the new job and being preoccupied with things I didn’t get a chance until just now. Absolutely gutted as would have loved to do this and have precisely the right amount of points available. 🙁

    • TGLoyalty says:

      My experience Friday and Saturday are better days. Watch the actual race on the TV at home in comfort.

  • Paul M says:

    Apologies if this has been answered lots of times before but if I bid for the Friday practice can I gift the two tickets or do I need to be one of the attendees? Cheers

    • Rob says:

      Rules say you need Hilton’s written consent if you do not attend. I suspect this consent would not be refused for an immediate family member though. Due to the nature of the event I suspect ID / security checks would happen.

  • Gordon says:

    I am looking to coincide with a holiday, to attend a Grand Prix weekend in the Middle East at some stage in the future, they seem to have all the glitz and glamour and fireworks!
