Silverstone Circuit
Silverstone Circuit has been hosting the British Grand Prix every year since 1987. The circuit is built on the site of a World War II bomber base, RAF Silverstone. The three runways of the airfield lie within the outline of the present track. Since its inception the circuit is known for its fast and challenging tracks. In 1951, the pits were moved to the straight between Woodcote and Copse, and a short circuit was built within the larger circuit. The track was modified after 1994 to reduce speeds and ensure safety for the drivers. A racing school also exists at Silverstone Circuit.
