Silverstone is delighted to confirm the entire Grand Prix circuit will be resurfaced in June, ahead of the FORMULA 1 ROLEX BRITISH GRAND PRIX 2019. In conjunction with this news, it is confirmed that Silverstone will host MotoGP™ in the UK to the end of 2021.

The track work will be carried out by leading construction solutions company Tarmac under the guidance of track consultant Jarno Zaffelli. He has been appointed by Silverstone as an advisor for the duration of the project.

Silverstone Managing Director Stuart Pringle said: “Getting to this point has involved a lot of work by the staff at Silverstone but throughout it all we have been completely focused on making sure we make the right decisions to guarantee the future of our most important events with Formula 1™ and MotoGP™.

“We have a globally-renowned company working on the surfacing of the track and we have one of the most respected circuit designers in Jarno Zaffelli working as an expert advisor to Silverstone during the works.

“We have created a window within this year’s schedule to allow us to carry out the work required and the track will be ready for the British Grand Prix. We’re confident it will provide us with the surface we need to run our busy calendar of two and four wheel events throughout the year, whatever the weather. I am very grateful to all of our clients who have worked with us to create the space in the calendar that is needed to make this happen.”

Paul Fleetham, Managing Director of Tarmac's Construction business said: “We are exceptionally proud to be working with the team at Silverstone to resurface the iconic British race circuit. It demonstrates both the quality of our people and our first class track record in delivering high-profile, nationally significant schemes.
 
“We’ve assembled a highly skilled team of professionals from across the country who will be working with pioneering innovations in automated construction to deliver the project to the highest possible standard. We look forward to getting underway.”

The FORMULA 1 ROLEX BRITISH GRAND PRIX 2019 takes place from 12 – 14 July and the GoPro British Grand Prix MotoGP™ is from 23 – 25 August 2019. For more information and ticket enquiries visit www.silverstone.co.uk
