Tarmac for the new Arena sequence at Silverstone, which will be used for the 2010 British Grand Prix, had been laid.

Pictures released by the circuit today also show the revised run-off areas at Brooklands and Woodcote corners towards the end of the lap.

Managing Director of Silverstone Circuits Richard Phillips said work was progressing according to schedule:

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 ?ǣ the new section of circuit from Abbey, up to the Arena Complex and round to the National Straight ?ǣ is also coming along nicely.
