Silverstone revamp underway
Renovation underway for the British Grand Prix
Following the Donington Park saga, Silverstone is gearing up to host the British Grand Prix for the foreseeable future.
Work on the new Arena Grand Prix circuit and improved spectator viewing facilities is well underway as the Northamptonshire circuit has got off to a flying start in its efforts to complete dramatic updates to both the circuit and venue. The circuit has yet to detail how exactly this will change the classic 5.141km circuit.
Richard Phillips, Managing Director of Silverstone Circuits Limited, has confirmed that work on the new circuit – which will host a number of world class events in 2010, including MotoGP and World Superbikes – is on schedule and due for completion in early March.
He also confirmed that discussions are on-going with Formula One Management, regarding the possibility of hosting the next Grand Prix on the new circuit.
