About The Race
Drivers call the British Grand Prix “insanely fast.” Fans, meanwhile, can add a weekend-long party to the thrill of speed.
The circuit, Silverstone, is located about 90 minutes north of London in Northamptonshire. It was built on the site of a World War II Royal Air Force bomber station.
Recent renovations and modernization include track upgrades and the construction of the Silverstone Wing, a state-of-the-art, $34 million pit and paddock facility.
Ride along on a lap around the fast course to see for yourself. Drivers take 52 laps around the circuit in the 190-mile race.
Thatched-roof cottages, castles and country roads meet modern day theaters, restaurants and shops in Northamptonshire, affectionately referred to as the Rose of the Shires. Add the F1 Grand Prix race and you have a unique place to visit.
Miles of bicycle paths and canals weave through the valley. The Rockingham Castle, which is perched high on a hill, is among Northamptonshire’s stately homes as is Althorp, the childhood home and final resting place of Princess Diana.
About 700,000 people live in the 15 towns and hundreds of villages in the county of Northamptonshire.
Northamptonshire has the same climate as the rest of the British Isles – it never gets very warm or very cold. The warmest month of the year is August in which the average high temperature is 73. The coldest months are January and February in which the average lows are 36. This means the temperatures during the summer running of the F1 British Grand Prix are almost ideal.
Things To Do In Northamptonshire
The medieval county of Northamptonshire was thrust into modern day hip by the 2005 movie and subsequent hit Broadway musical, “Kinky Boots.” It is the story of a Northamptonshire shoe factory owner who partners with a drag queen named Lola to save his struggling business by making fetish footwear for drag queens. Northamptonshire is known for its history of shoemaking. If you want to learn all about it, visit:
- The Northampton Museum: This museum reflects the area’s importance in the manufacture of shoes. It contains 12,000 shoes and 50,000 archival records tracing the history of footwear. There is a display of shoes from ancient times to present. You can also relax in the Shoe Lounge and see the latest designer footwear.
And, when you’ve had enough shoe history, check out the many other things to see in the beautiful countryside, including:
- Market Square: Outdoor markets seem new and trendy but, actually, Northampton's Market Square, has been in existence since 1235 when Henry III chased merchants from church property. He ordered the market be moved north of the church and that is where it has been since. While there, check out the surrounding buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries, including Welsh House, Beethoven House and Victoria House.
- Abington Museum: Learn about Northamptonshire’s history, including the importance of leather in the region.
- Historic homes and castles:
- Althorp (childhood home of Princess Diana)
- Boughton House (called the “English Versailles”)
