New date for Silverstone MotoGP™: 29 Aug – 01 Sept

Silverstone’s round of the FIM MotoGP™ World Championship is set for a new date in 2013, after the Federation Internationale De Motocyclisme (FIM) published its provisional calendar for the forthcoming season. The British Grand Prix is scheduled to take place over four days between Thursday 29 August and Sunday 01 September*.

Cal Crutchlow and Bradley Smith will form an all-British rider line-up for the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 MotoGP™ team in 2013, while a host of other Brits are also linked with rides in the premier class, so Union Jack flags will be out in force at Silverstone.

2013 will also see the return of nine-times World Champion Valentino Rossi to Silverstone. This time he will be back on a Yamaha, alongside former team mate and 2010 World Champion Jorge Lorenzo. Rossi’s return to Yamaha is highly anticipated, with the MotoGP™ legend expected to be challenging for more race wins and the world title in 2013.
