WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR SIL­VER­STONE?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

One thing that chief ex­ec­u­tive Whi­taker was keen to point out to MCN is that the con­tin­ued fate of the project will have no im­pact what­so­ever on the run­ning of this year’s Bri­tish Grand Prix in only eight weeks time.

The Cir­cuit of Wales are the cur­rent con­tract hold­ers for the race, pen­ning a 10-year deal with Motogp bosses Dorna in 2014, and have been host­ing the race at Sil­ver­stone ever since. But, de­spite in­di­ca­tions that the project might be in jeop­ardy, he was in­sis­tent that this year’s race would con­tinue as nor­mal thanks to the way the project is struc­tured.

“There is ab­so­lutely no rea­son to be con­cerned about the race. We made a de­ci­sion at the end of last year to ef­fec­tively split the Cir­cuit of Wales from Motogp, and they are es­sen­tially run by to­tally dif­fer­ent teams of peo­ple and un­der dif­fer­ent bud­gets. There is ab­so­lutely no con­cern about the race, full stop.”
