Built on an old military airport in 1948, Silverstone was a high-speed track with long straights and quick curves. Throughout the years the track layout has undergone several changes but retained most of its character. There are in fact 4 different layouts of the circuit at Silverstone, including a new GP Circuit, National, International and Stowe Circuit. With a combination of ultra fast corners, long straights and some slow sections, Silverstone represents a good challenge to any driver or rider. Silverstone, just like most of the other race circuits in the UK is another airfield conversion. Racing commenced in 1948 on the old perimeter track and runways and has continued to the current day. Silverstone has been the UK's top international car racing venue for much of the last twenty years, but until the last couple of years held no motorcycle races. Silverstone is the most famous race circuit in the UK at present, holding prestigious races like the Formula 1 Grand Prix and The World SuperBike Championship. A number of Formula 1 race teams are based close to the circuit in Northamptonshire. Anyone with a licence can do a track day at Silverstone. The Bike track days and Silverstone Car track days are open to anyone with a roadworthy vehicle.

Silverstone Track Days Information

Just where do you start with a circuit that is, by all accounts, the last word in British and international motorsport? You can feel the heritage and legacy the second you arrive at Silverstone, and just a hint of the excitement all those British F1 Grand Prix and MotoGP champions must feel taking to its historic corners.

It's a pleasure to drive or ride on a track day knowing that some of the greatest names in motorsport have laid down some rubber underneath you. Silverstone Bike track days and Silverstone Car track days regularly take place on the Grand Prix and National Circuit, which lets you push your own set of hot wheels to its limits - maybe even to pole position under the guidance of an expert instructor.

But for a taste of what supremely fast, turbocharged thoroughbreds can really do at this iconic venue, there’s many fantastic driving experiences at Silverstone available to be booked in Supercars and F1 style Single Seater racing cars. These mainly take place on the International and Southern Circuits.

Also newly launched for 2021 is The Silverstone Interactive Museum, a totally immersive new exhibition that gets you deeper into the history of Silverstone and British motor racing than you ever thought possible, with many exciting attractions on offer.
