The action comes after last year’s race was impacted by ‘Just Stop Oil’ campaigners, who entered the track on the opening lap of the British GP.

Fortunately, the race was red-flagged due to a crash just before they took to the track, meaning they could be dealt with quickly.

Organisers are already taking strict measures such as facial recognition, while there’s also increased bag searches.

Northampton Police will have a strong presence around the Silverstone fencing.
