MCN’s sources in the MotoGP paddock say that the British Grand Prix will remain at Silverstone and not make the move to Donington Park for 2018, with the deal potentially being announced as soon as this weekend and the final round of the 2017 season at Valencia.

With the premature end of the Circuit of Wales’ contract to host the race (a deal that saw them sub-contract the event to Silverstone as construction on their own track continued to stall), a bidding war was expected to be launched between the current hosts and Donington, under new management since their purchase by MCE British Superbike organisers Motorsport Vision.

However, it’s now believed that MotoGP bosses Dorna and Silverstone management have signed a three-year agreement that will instead keep the race at the Northamptonshire track, with Silverstone managing director Stuart Pringle in attendance at the Valencian Grand Prix to put pen to paper.
