CIRCUIT

Masterclass day will run on one of Silverstone’s three world-famous circuits.

GRAND PRIX
3.660 miles / 5,890 km

The Grand Prix Track layout has undergone many developments to create a challenging and fast circuit since hosting the inaugural Formula 1 World Championship round on May 13, 1950.   

NATIONAL 
1.640 miles / 2,639 km  

The shortest of Silverstone’s three layouts, the National Circuit can provide some of the most exciting racing the venue sees each year. Here, the long Wellington straight leads to the tightening Brooklands corner, with braking duels and overtaking at a premium.

INTERNATIONAL
1.85 miles / 2.97 km

Lead the race from start to finish on this 1.85-mile fast and technically challenging circuit with its combination of high-speed corners and straights, also used by Formula 1.
