Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit Almost Complete

According to the Silverstone official website, the work on the Grand Prix Circuit is almost complete. The investment which is supposed to have been quite impressive covers a new track layout and improved spectator facilities. The constructors managed to keep things on schedule, so work should be finished according to the initial plan, at the end of March.

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.“

“There is still a considerable amount of work going on at Silverstone, including the new elevated banks and spectator viewing areas, which will continue beyond March. Conference and hospitality buildings are also being built on the new Stowe Complex.”

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.
