Silverstone Circuit

Silverstone Circuit is an English motor racing circuit next to the Northamptonshire villages of Silverstone and Whittlebury. The circuit straddles the Northamptionshire and Bickinghamshire border, with the current main circuit entry on the Buckinghamshire side.

As a former air base, the facility has little in the way of elevation changes, for much of its history Silverstone was known for its ultra-fast sweeping corners and fast average speeds. Though the requirements of modern Formula One forced the addition of chicanes and other devices to slow speeds down from the insane to the merely ridiculous. The Historic Grand Prix course remains open, flat-out corners that originally made the track famous.
