Improved facilities

The 2011 British Moto GP race will be the first international event to take advantage of Silverstone’s new $44 million pit and paddock complex. These new facilities are located on the opposite side of the track to the old pit and paddock complex alongside Hangar Straight, where Nigel Mansell had his famous wheel banging incident with his team-mate Nelson Piquet during the 1987 Formula One race at the venue.

The new complex has been named “The Wing” and has been met with universal acclaim from the Motorsport community. Even Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone has been impressed with the new complex, having spent years calling for improvements to be made to the venue:  “I’m delighted with the progress and prospects for the future of Silverstone. The pits and paddock complex is a state of the art facility and will form the backbone of Silverstone’s plans to be a world class facility.”

The fight for victory

Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo took an easy win at the 2010 British round of the Moto GP championship on his way to an unchallenged championship victory. However, the 2011 season has been far more competitive with Honda having produced what is perhaps the best package in the field. This has allowed their new recruit, the 2007 World Champion Casey Stoner, to take the fight to Jorge Lorenzo as he currently lies just 12 points behind the Spaniard with four races down. This battle will undoubtedly continue at Silverstone.

We have all grown accustomed to nine times World Champion Valentino Rossi being involved in this battle. However, the Italian has joined the struggling Ducati team for this season which has resulted in victories proving illusive to the Italian. However, Rossi is still looking forward to Silverstone, a race he missed last year due to injury: “I’m very excited because I had a toe injury so I had to watch the race from the television but it was not the same and so I decided to come here and see the track because all the other drivers say it is good and fast. I can’t wait for the grand prix.”

With world class facilities, a tight championship fighter and a pumped up legend, the 2011 British Moto GP race is set to be a thriller. Make sure you don’t miss out.
