As I write there is only 238 days and 18 hours to go before the next British Grand prix at Silverstone.It has been the home of the British Grand Prix for the last four decades and is one of the most exciting on the calendar. It comes alive for the race weekend and you could even be there and a part of it if you just consider joining the Britain F1 Paddock Club by going along and having a look at edgeglobalevents.com/f1-paddock-club/f1-paddock-club-britain/
Silverstone does not just cater for the Grand Prix. It also hosts lots of other activities through the year. Some of the things it does outside of the race are.
Visit the Silverstone
Experience.This has been a long time in coming but the site has converted one of its old World War two hangars into an interactive museum. Before it became a race track the site was an old world war two airfield which saw active service in the battle of Britain. It won’t be ready until next spring (2019) but it will tell the story of how the site has changed form a monastery to the home of the British GP. It will, of course feature heavily on the racing and racers that have graced the track plus focus on the technology that goes into creating a Formula one car.
