DONNINGTON TO REPLACE SILVERSTONE FROM 2010

image It has been announced today that from 2010 the British Grand Prix is to move from it’s traditional home at Silverstone to Donnington. While there has been many years of argument between the circuit and Bernie Ecclestone I don’t think anyone really thought that they wouldn’t come to some agreement in the end.

I personally wonder if the Grand Prix might not end up back at Silverstone a lot quicker than it might look as Donnington have to find £100M from somewhere to develop the circuit to the level that F1 requires. Right now it seems that Donnington don’t have either the money nor the planning permission to develop the circuit. Time will tell…

The photo, by the way, was taken on a trip to Silverstone to see the F1 testing a couple of weeks ago. You can see all the pictures here.
