Circuit

First name: Silverstone International Circuit

Place: Silverstone, Northamptonshire, England, UK

Construction: like most of the circuits in Great Britain, Silverstone was born from the union of three runways of a military airport. At the end of the Second World War, due to the deterioration into which the legendary tracks of Donington and Brookland had fallen, the Northamptonshire track was adopted by the Royal Auromobile Club as the venue for the 1948 British Grand Prix. the modern Formula 1, the English track hosted the first race ever, which was later won by Farina. In the immediate following years it underwent several changes, and for a few years it did not host the World Championship race, only to return in the 60s alternating with Brands Hatch. In 1971, the British Racing Drivers’ Club bought the entire plot of land and modernized the track structures. Over the years the track has undergone many changes, and from the original triangular shape it has gone on to have different curves, while retaining the layout of a very fast and treacherous circuit. The last modification dates back to 2010, when the section following the Abbey corner was redesigned and the starting straight was moved after the Club corner.
