Chaps, I’m very sorry to say it’s looking very unlike there will an outing to Silverstone this year.
As most of you will be aware, Octagon was bought by Jonathan Palmer recently, which included all of their tracks other than Silverstone. As EVOactive don’t want to go to Silverstone this year, OnTrack/Palmer cannot justify the [color:“red”]ï¿½26,000[/color] Silverstone are charging to hire the track for a day!
I believe the cost for the Brands GP circuit is also very high, so most days there will be the Indy format.
Now, hopefully this will change when the circuit’s revenues plummet, and I’ll be able to come back to you. But for now I’m very sorry to have raised your hopes.
Sadly, if it’s not insurance companies pushing up the cost of trackdays it looks like it’s greedy circuit owners.
