Silverstone Circuit

Silverstone hosted the first-ever round of the World Championship in 1950 and is one of only two circuits to host a Championship race every year ever since then.

The iconic venue has undergone many makeovers over the years, but always remaining at its heart is a track that drivers just simply love to race on.

Silverstone boasts one of the fastest tracks in the world and you will struggle to find a more thrilling corner combination in racing than the Maggots-Becketts-Chapel complex. This circuit is one of Formula 1's most valuable treasures.

But Silverstone's future as host of the British Grand Prix has been in doubt for a number of years now.

2019 represents a crucial marker as this is the final year of Silverstone's current deal. No new deal has been agreed for quite some time.

Directions: Silverstone is on the A43 in Northamptonshire, 8km (5miles) from Towcester and 9km (5.25miles) from both Brackley and Buckingham. It is easily reached by two motorways – the M1 and the M40. Main line rail services from London and the regions are available at both Milton Keynes and Northampton.
