It has been confirmed that this year’s BSB at Silverstone will be taking place on the National circuit layout – following on from the cancellation of last weekend’s MotoGP racing on the GP layout, due to bad weather.
BSB race director Stuart Higgs, with the support of BSB’s controlling body the MCRCB has decided to use the 1.64-mile National circuit – in attempt to avoid a repeat situation of the MotoGP drama from the bank holiday weekend. In essence, that means that the layout of Silverstone will be dramatically reduced from 5,901 meters to 2,640 meters – but don’t worry, the number of laps the riders will be racing for has gone up to 30.
Of course, this comes as a result of the chaos at the British MotoGP round from the poor drainage and standing water on the track, which ended up forcing cancellation. And to try and ensure it doesn’t happen again, BSB bosses have decided to switch up the circuit.
