SILVERSTONE: THE PAST, THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE

SILVERSTONE: THE PAST, THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE
There are two facts that even the most casual racing fan probably knows about Silverstone: firstly that it used to be a World War II airfield – names such as ‘Hangar Straight’ provide a clue – and secondly that it hosted the very first Formula 1 World Championship grand prix in 1950, watched by none other than the future Queen Elizabeth II and her father, King George VI.
