An epic opportunity from Silverstone – This is a must for racing fans…

If you have been keyed in to the happenings of the Silverstone race circuit, you may well know work is currently underway to build a new pit lane, paddock and conference complex. These rather optimistic artists impressions of the new building look impressive so far…

What I find funny about the pictures is that the weather coordinates with the lighting and shadows on the building, however, the thing that really cracks me up is how optimistic they are about the weather – we are either going to have tropically hot days, or tropically stormy days. And I love their optimism that with a sky as black as black, that a grand prix would till go on! It also seems to be entirely dominated by Ferrari and McLaren mechanics!

Anyway, this lovely new complex is called.

Aha. That is not an error – the complex is yet to be named, and this is where you lovely lot come in! You have the chance to name the new complex, so you can not only be part of motoring history, but win some amazing prizes too!

All you have to do is think of a name, give an explanation as to why you chose that name, give a few of your details and that’s all.

The fabulous prizes include:

  • A VIP invitation for the winner and a guest to the official opening ceremony of the new complex in May 2011.
  • Race day hospitality for the winner and a guest at the 2011 Silverstone Formula One Grand Prix, and the 2011 Silverstone British Grand Prix (Moto GP).
