Richard Phillips, Managing Director of Silverstone Circuits Limited, said, “Work on the circuit and venue is on schedule. The team has been working around the clock, through some pretty terrible weather conditions, to make sure the circuit is ready on time. The track works at Brooklands and Woodcote are now complete, including the new run-off area for the fast entry into Pits Straight, while the major new development – the new section of circuit from Abbey, up to the Arena Complex and round to the National Straight – is also coming along nicely.“
After its completion, world class racing events will held on the Grad Prix Circuit at Silverstone. Probably the most important one is the Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix on 9-11 July and the MotoGP and World Superbike motorcycle racing on 18-20 June and 31 July - 01 August respectively.
The first major event to be held at the Northamptonshire circuit is the Silverstone Supercar featuring the FIA GT1 World Championship, on 01-02 May.
