The legendary Silverstone CircuitThe legendary Silverstone Circuit
One of the oldest and fastest circuits in Formula 1, loved by almost every driver, Silverstone. Silverstone is a circuit mixed with straights, narrow turns and sharp corners built on a former World War II Royal Air Force bomber station, RAF Silverstone. The first Grand Prix Formula 1 race was raced at Silverstone in 1950. Since 1987, Silverstone is an annual event on the Formula 1 calendar.
During the Grand Prix there will be many activities in- and outside the Silverstone circuit. Visit one of the towns located nearby to the circuit like Towcester, Buckingham or Milton Keynes. Or visit the National Motor Museum and take a glimpse at the McLaren Mercedes MP4/23, the winning car at the British Grand Prix in 2008, with Lewis Hamilton behind the wheel. Many campsites are surrounding the Silverstone circuit that offer many activities for you to participate in and great atmospheres.
In 1973, our first McLaren winner at Silverstone became a fact: Peter Revson. He was the first but definitely not the last McLaren driver that triumphed at the British Grand Prix. Great names like James Hunt, Mika Häkkinen, Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost followed him. At Silverstone, McLaren won a total of 12 races with 10 different drivers.
“The British Grand Prix is one of the highlights of the year for every driver. The fans are very knowledgeable and very fair, and the circuit is a fantastic high-speed challenge. It’s one of the few places where the drivers feel like they’ve been let off the leash because you can really feel the aerodynamic grip at Silverstone, which makes it very pleasurable to drive.”
– Fernando Alonso
