**About the new Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit **
• Silverstone has invested more than £5 million on the new, super-fast circuit. Away from the track, the Northamptonshire venue is making a number of improvements to its spectator viewing areas. In addition to constructing elevated viewing banks, existing grandstands and fence lines are being moved to bring fans closer to the on-track action.
• The new track design retains the essence of Silverstone - a fast and flowing, yet technically challenging circuit.
• The majority of Silverstone's iconic straights and high-speed corners are retained in the new Grand Prix Circuit. The only significant change is from Abbey corner where, the riders will now turn right at Abbey onto a dramatic new section of track.
• The new circuit will host a number of world class events in 2010, including the AirAsia British Grand Prix (MotoGP, 18-20 June), the FORMULA 1 SANTANDER BRITISH GRAND PRIX (09-11 July), and the FIM Superbike World Championship (31 July - 01 August).
