Leon and Ron Haslam officially opened the new 3.66-mile Silverstone GP track last week. And to honour the occasion Silverstone has just given us incredible footage of the father and son team taking their first laps of the track, stalked by David Coulthard in a Red Bull Formula One car. 

World Superbike championship leader Leon is riding his own Suzuki GSX-R1000, and road bike GP legend Ron is riding one of his school’s Honda FireBlades. 

Ron secured a podium at the track in the 1984 500GP.  

If you want to ride the circuit yourself then check out the dates for the new Silverstone-based Ron Haslam race school at:

And if you fancy seeing bikes racing at what promises to be the fastest race track in the world then book tickets now for the British MotoGP (June 18-20) and the British round of World Superbikes (July 31 and August 1).  Go to:
