|1. Silverstone was first used for motorsport by a group of friends who set up an impromptu race in September 1947.
2. Spectacular corner combinations with compression forces of up to 5g and an extremely fast race pace make this circuit one of the most strenuous.
3. While high speed is the key characteristic of Silverstone, there are also some slower and more technical parts of the circuit in these areas acceleration is particularly important.
4. Silverstone is the home race of our driver Jordan King. His home town Warwick is just 54km from the circuit.
5. At Silverstone the DRS (Drag Reduction System) zones are: Pit straight and Hangar straight.
6. The circuit has 18 corners: 10 to the right and 8 to the left.
7. The area between the Stowe and Vale corners is the area where the car needs the maximum amount of breaking force.
8. Last year, Racing Engineering driver’s Alexander Rossi finished second in the feature race.
9. The Vale curve is a critical point because cars often suffer from understeer but need a lot of momentum to exit quickly.10. Last year, just shortly before the finish line, Arthur Pic pushed Racing Engineering’s driver Jordan King off the track which meant, that despite a fantastic race, he only finished in 22nd position.
