Silverstone promises great MotoGP experience
Silverstone has promised a great experience for MotoGP fans next year, when the circuit hosts the world championship race.
The Northamptonshire-based circuit, replacing Donington in 2010, is investing £5 million in a new layout for the bikes, also carrying out significant improvements to spectator viewing facilities.
Silverstone has also promised affordable ticket prices, including race day tickets from £44.
"We cannot wait to see MotoGP back at Silverstone", said Richard Phillips, Managing Director of Silverstone Circuits Limited.
"The series is returning to the Home of British Motor Racing for the first time since 1986 and it's going to be a fantastic occasion for everyone involved - riders, teams and, most importantly, the fans.
"Silverstone is the UK's premier motor sport venue and we are continuing to develop it into a world class facility for two and four wheeled racing. A further £7 million is being invested before March of next year – more than £5 million of which is being spent on improving the viewing experience for fans, and developing the circuit for MotoGP.
"We'll have an exciting new circuit; new spectator areas, getting fans closer to the action; and a spectacular lineup of off-track entertainment, including interactive experiences, bike displays and concerts.
"We have an incredible team here at Silverstone, with unrivaled experience of organizing world class events, and we'll be putting on a real show for the fans next year. We are confident of delivering a memorable MotoGP experience, at more affordable prices."
