In 1948 The Royal Automobile Club (RAC) employed an ex-farmer to turn a wartime airfield and farm into a race track, bringing back international motor racing to Britain in the wake of the Second World War.
Silverstone’s history had begun as the home of British Motor Racing.
Orion are proud to have been providing secure print services to Silverstone for over 20 years, continually reviewing levels of security to protect both Silverstone and its visitors. During this time Orion have delivered 2 bespoke holograms – in 2008 and again in 2010 – each to the same exacting standards as is used on bank notes. Moving away from a generic, widely used ‘house’ hologram, along with additional security features, has proved to be the perfect solution for the elimination of counterfeit tickets. The latest hologram features a combined outline of the circuits for both Formula 1 and Moto GP.
From Souvenir entrance tickets to corporate hospitality passes, car and coach parking passes, camping passes and Park & Ride tickets, Orion produce over 80 different types of secure documents, together with tickets totalling over 600,000 annually.
Helen Hoban, Head of Ticketing and Customer Service, says ‘I can highly recommend Orion Print. Their personable and professional service has been highly efficient at all times – from ticket design to production to delivery – faultless!’
