Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

The Bri­tish Grand Prix will re­main at Sil­ver­stone next year af­ter fur­ther set-backs for the Cir­cuit of Wales mean the multi-mil­lion pound Ebbw Vale com­plex will not be ready in time to host the event.

The project is await­ing a de­ci­sion from the Welsh Gov­ern­ment as to whether they will ac­cept re­vised fund­ing pro­pos­als to un­der­write the pri­vate in­vest­ments nec­es­sary to see the cir­cuit built.

A Cir­cuit of Wales source con­firmed to MCN build­ing work won’t be­gin un­til six to eight weeks af­ter the gov­ern­ment make the fund­ing call, mean­ing the 2017 Bri­tish GP tak­ing place in Wales is out of the ques­tion with a fur­ther op­tion on Sil­ver­stone’s con­tract for the 2018 sea­son.
