Intro

It has evolved a great deal since being converted from a 2nd World War airfield in 1948. It was home to the British Grand Prix from 1977 to 1986 which, after a long spell at Donington, returned to a very much revised Silverstone in 2010. The track was altered again for 2011 with the start line being moved and a new paddock complex built.
