WIN Tickets To The MotoGP British Grand Prix To See All Your Heroes On Track At Silverstone

The British Grand Prix will remain at Silverstone for the foreseeable future after an agreement was reached between the Northamptonshire circuit’s bosses and represenatives from the Circuit of Wales for the 2017 season. 

With the Circuit of Wales facing yet more delays while the Welsh government consider revised funding proposals to underwrite the project’s private equity, building work could be pushed back as far as the start of next year meaning the facility would not be ready to host the British Grand Prix next summer.

The deal also sees an option to extend the agreement to cover the 2018 race should there be further delays, with the Circuit of Wales contracted to host the British Grand Prix until at least 2020.

Commenting on the deal, John Grant, Chairman of Silverstone Circuits Limited, said, “I am delighted that we will be running MotoGP back at Silverstone next year.  The size of this year’s crowd clearly shows the enthusiasm for the Championship which Silverstone’s fast flowing circuit shows to its very best.”

Michael Carrick, Circuit of Wales, added, “Silverstone, together with our team from the Circuit of Wales, have done a fantastic job running the British round of MotoGP for the last two years and I am delighted that we have been able to agree terms to continue and develop our partnership.”

This weekend’s British GP saw the highest crowd in recent years with 73,310 fans packed into the circuit to see Maverick Vinales take victory for Suzuki on Sunday.
