2012 FORMULA 1 SANTANDER BRITISH GRAND PRIX (Silverstone) July 8
Circuit length: 5.891km
Race distance: 306.747km
The venue calls itself the 'Home of Motorsport' and it’s certainly one of the most popular tracks among the drivers, who love its high speed challenge. Silverstone's connection with Formula 1 stretches back to 1950 when it hosted the first ever World Championship race. Eight of the 12 teams on the 2011 grid are based within 80-miles of the famous circuit. Built on a former World War II airfield, Silverstone is one of the fastest tracks on the calendar and famous for its awe-inspiring Becketts complex, which shows off an F1 car’s ability to change direction quickly. The circuit and facilities underwent a major overhaul in recent years so it is fit for purpose in modern F1.
