STATEMENT REGARDING THE SILVERSTONE WING
As with much of the country, Silverstone is currently withstanding high winds and extreme weather. On Sunday afternoon and again on Monday night, the site experienced some wind damage, the most significant of this being to part of the roof of the Silverstone Wing. Engineers are currently assessing the damage and working with us to ensure minimal disruption to our customers while repairs are taking place.
Sporting Director, Stuart Pringle, commented: “Although it looks a bit of a mess at the moment, the damage is largely cosmetic and the structural and functional integrity of the roof remains completely intact. Whilst clearly we will have to smarten the section of roof and clear the insulation debris from the Paddock, we don’t anticipate any impact on this weekend’s BRSCC race meeting and certainly not on our high profile season opener, the FIA World Endurance Championship, to which we look forward to welcoming fans and competitors alike over the weekend of 10 – 12 April.”
