Bring it to Thruxton!.That'll sort out the men from the Lewis's.:d

Seriously though,there HAS to be a British GP for the championship to be taken seriously.Most of the teams are based here and a massive amount of people who work in the sport are British,it's a home coming for them so if you take it away you damage the sport......sorry,business.:rolleyes:

Me too Ian, I lost interest some time ago, in the 90s I think!

Deffo agree with you Donald, Britian cannot cope and would struggle a lot hosting a street race. But to loose Silverstone... :eek:

Plans approved for new Silverstone pits

Silverstone's planning application for a new pitlane and paddock to be built was approved by the local council, clearing the way for the circuit to raise the standard of its facilities to meet Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone's demands.

Under the current proposal, which it is hoped will safeguard the future of the British Grand Prix, the pit and paddock complex would be moved from its current location between Woodcote and Copse to the straight between Club and Abbey.

Those two corners would be reconfigured, with a new pitlane, garages, a race control building, media centre, hospitality, and paddock all constructed on the site.

Future plans for Silverstone's development also include the construction of a business park, a sport and leisure complex, a manufacturer test centre and a university campus over the next 10 years

Silverstone's managing director Richard Phillips said: "We're absolutely delighted that AVDC's planning committee have unanimously voted in favour of this proposed development.

"This is a turning point for Silverstone and a bold commitment towards the BRDC's support for motorsport in the UK and retaining the British Grand Prix. The current programme provides for work to start on site later this year."
