??25m plan for Silverstone approved

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

A ??25m plan to develop the Silverstone circuit has been approved by the circuit’s owners, the British Racing Drivers Club, in a meeting yesterday.

The circuit will get new grandstands, new pit and paddock facilities, a science park, a test centre for car manufacturers, hotel and conference centre, and new homes nearby.

Silverstone is fighting to keep its place on the F1 calendar. Its current contract expires in 2009 and Bernie Ecclestone has repeatedly demanded the track make improvements. (Links below)
