the multi‐million pound investment into a new grand prix track, and improved spectator viewing facilities, is part of a major redevelopment that will ensure silverstone remains a world‐class venue where all forms of motor sport can be celebrated. in addition to the new track, populous has provided the new layout for the paddock and pit lane that is due for completion in 2011.
