Silverstone Circuit

Silverstone Circuit Travel Guide

Silverstone race track has hosted many significant motor racing events in its long history, as well as many cultural and entertainment events. It started life as an airfield, left unused at the end of the Second World War. Britain had no major race tracks, so Silverstone was selected as a good central location in the middle of England. It hosted its first event, the RAC International Grand Prix, in 1948, attended by an estimated 100,000 people. Silverstone grew in notoriety over the following decades, hosting national and international motor racing events.
