A SILVERSTONE SHOCKER?
The British weather could play a huge part in September’s showdown and there’s an army of outsiders who could spring a surprise on Motogp’s podium regulars...
There’s nowhere quite like Silverstone. With high-speed straights and crazy-fast corners, not only does the Northants circuit see some of the highest lap speeds of any event on the Motogp calendar, but it also plays host to some of the wildest weather. And when the two combine the resulting race is almost anyone’s for the taking. Don’t bet the farm on the British Grand Prix being another notch on the championship bedposts of Rossi, Marquez or Lorenzo; it’s very possible that one of these win-hungry outsiders will be vying for Silverstone glory too, especially if the heavens open. And with strong recent performances from Danilo Petrucci, Jack Miller, and the ever-present threat of Andrea Dovizioso, the podium regulars could be in for a shock come Sunday, September 4.
