Silverstone welcomes back Britain's round of the FIM Superbike World Championship after a two year absence. With more than £5 million of investment in a new, super fast bike circuit, expectation will be high as fans enjoy one of the best race experiences available in the UK.
Silverstone is conveniently situated right in the heart of the UK, approximately 90 minutes north of London and 60 minutes south of Birmingham. Road access is exceptionally easy along the A43 dual carriageway from either the M40 or M1.
By public transport, the nearest stations are Banbury or Milton Keynes, both of which offer fast connections to destinations throughout the country.
