Silverstone Stowe Complex Details Revealed

Home of British motorsport and one of the world’s most famous motorsport venues, Silverstone, has recently unveiled a new experiential driving and test complex. According to Silverstone’s officials, the new Stowe Complex comprises customer focused test track facilities, hospitality units and pit garages.

“The state of the art Stowe Complex will further enhance our offering to manufacturers, corporations and brands involved in motorsport as well as support the growth of Silverstone’s role at the centre of Motor Sport Valley,”
explained Richard Phillips, managing director of Silverstone Circuits, in a statement for the press.

The Stowe Complex is due for completion by March 2010, featuring a new multi-surface 1.15 mile fully-licensed race track. The circuit can also be used to demonstrate chassis control systems like ESP and ABS on modern vehicles.

Alongside a split braking area, there will also be a three-lane irrigated wet handling pad boasting different levels of grip from sheet ice to standard wet tarmac.

Away from the track, two new buildings have been constructed designed to host automotive and corporate events. The first group of units will serve the new Stowe Complex and the second the existing Southern Circuit.

Both buildings have roof terrace viewing along with briefing rooms and independent catering facilities. Moreover, the units come with easily interchangeable brand strips offering total ownership for events if required.

Stowe Complex is the first phase of a £7m track development program that will also see additional configurations to the existing Grand Prix circuit to cater for the arrival of the Moto GP (June 4-6 2010). The new extensions mean Silverstone Circuit will boast 5 different track configurations on the 800 acre site.
