Silverstone Circuit… Royal Seal of Approval

WSBK Report

His Royal Highness the Duke of York, KG, UK Special Representative for International Trade and Investment was the special guest of the Silverstone circuit on 29 April as the new-look racetrack was officially unveiled in front of 500 guests.

The next stages of the circuit’s impressive development programme are still ongoing but the layout of the 3.66 mile (5.89 km) circuit is now complete.

Infront Motor Sports CEO Paolo Flammini was also present at the launch of the new circuit, and he will return with the entire WSBK circus for the British round of the series, on Sunday 1 August.

Amidst a host of stars from four-wheeled racing, current WSBK leader Leon Haslam joined his father Ron on track to represent the World Superbike class, which will be one of the cornerstones of Silverstone’s 2010 race calendar.
