As a result of this weekend’s cancelled British MotoGP round at Silverstone, CEO of the circuit Stuart Pringle has expressed his intention to investigate what happened this weekend.

Heavy downpours of rain on Sunday left thousands of racing fans unable to watch the action this weekend, with MotoGP , Moto2 and Moto3 racing cancelled as a result of bad weather and water on track which made it impossible for the races to take place. And to find out what went wrong at the newly developed circuit, CEO of Silverstone Stuart Pringle, has promised a full investigation to get to the bottom of what happened.


Silverstone CEO, Stuart Pringle said: “First and foremost, I would like to apologize to all the fans. I really feel that this has happened. If I had known that they would have to wait six hours under these conditions with this result, I would have decided to cancel the event at noon.”

Pringle went on to announce that an investigation would be carried out; particularly considering the circuit was only resurfaced last March. He said: “We will conduct further investigations into this matter immediately to understand if our newly reasonably-sounding track played a crucial role in the cancellation of the Grand Prix. We will review all the data we have, and together with the contractor, Aggregate Industries, a full investigation will be carried out. I do not want any doubt and we will also trust an independent third party. We have to understand what happened.”
