Silverstone appears set for another redevelopment

After the construction of a new pit and paddock facility last year, the owners of the Silverstone circuit have moved forward with plans for further development of the area.

2011 was the first year that F1 cars raced using the new complex, called “The Wing”, as well as a relocated start/finish straight and new grandstand.

Today, news has emerged that the owners wish to add a business park, technology park, education campus, three hotels, a new karting track as well as an outdoor stage to the current track.

Spectator facilities are also being planned, which are known to include a museam of motorsport.

This development is being touted as “the most important initiative that Silverstone has taken in its 60-year history” by managing director Richard Philips:

"Approval of this planning application will help maintain Silverstone’s position as 
a leading global centre for sport, leisure, education and technology and support its 
vision of becoming a world-leading motor sport destination."
