Mo­tor­sport Vi­sion’s Jonathan Palmer linked with Sil­ver­stone bid

Motor Sport News - - Italian Gp Report -

Mo­tor­sport Vi­sion head Jonathan Palmer could be on the verge of ten­der­ing a bid to run Sil­ver­stone, ac­cord­ing to re­ports.

Sil­ver­stone’s owner, the Bri­tish Rac­ing Driv­ers’ Club, has been locked in ne­go­ti­a­tions over sell­ing the 249-year lease to the Bri­tish Grand Prix venue to Jaguar Land Rover. How­ever, it is thought that talks on the deal have stalled in re­cent months. Ginetta chair­man Lawrence Tom­lin­son has also ten­dered a bid, but the BRDC board voted in favour of pur­su­ing talks with JLR.

Ac­cord­ing to the Tele­graph, MSV boss Palmer is now keen to en­ter the fray. He is quoted as say­ing: “We are def­i­nitely in­ter­ested in mak­ing an of­fer for Sil­ver­stone and have a lot of con­fi­dence in our abil­ity to bring a great deal of sta­bil­ity to it and a vi­sion for the fu­ture.

“The BRDC hasn’t ap­proached me, but I’ve told them that I want the chance to be in­vited to put a deal for­ward. I have al­ways said that MSV would be in­ter­ested in run­ning Sil­ver­stone.”

Mo­tor­sport Vi­son al­ready runs Brands Hatch, Oul­ton Park, Snet­ter­ton and Cad­well Park.
