Brands and three other circuits sold
Brands Hatch, Oulton Park, Cadwell Park and Snetterton have been sold.
The four tracks all host rounds of the British Superbike Championship. Brands Hatch is also the venue for the European World Superbike round which has become one of the largest outdoor sporting events in the UK each summer. Brands alone is said to be worth around £35 million.
The new owners are MotoSport Vision, whose managing director is former F1 car star Jonathan Palmer. Palmer says the circuits’ futures are safe.
Former owner Interpublic will continue to lease the Silverstone track from the British Racing Drivers Club to host the British F1 car GP.
