1 of 3

Silverstone’s new track developments are nearing completion with the new layout and spectator facilities expected to be finished by the end of the month.

The Northamptonshire circuit will host BSB, WSB and MotoGP events during 2010.

Silverstone’s Managing Director Richard Phillips said: “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 – the new section of circuit from Abbey, up to the Arena Complex and round to the National Straight – is also coming along nicely.

“There is still a considerable amount of work going on at Silverstone, including the new elevated banks and spectator viewing areas, which will continue beyond March. Conference and hospitality buildings are also being built on the new Stowe Complex.”
