About The Event

The British round of the World Championship was held on the Isle of Man as part of the TT races from 1949 to 1976.

In 1977 Silverstone became the host of the British Grand Prix and the event remained at the Northamptonshire circuit until 1987.

From 1987 to 2009 Donington Park played host to event and in 2010 it returned to Silverstone on a five-year agreement with Dorna. The agreement was then taken on by the new, Circuit of Wales project from 2015 and the 2017 event will be the third promoted by the new initiative.

Ahead of the British MotoGP™ taking place at the purpose-built £375 million South Wales valley venue for the first time in 2018, The Circuit of Wales will promote and run the event at Silverstone.

This not only ensures race fans will continue to enjoy a magnificent motorsport weekend, it will also give them a taste of what to expect in terms of slick organisation and great all-family entertainment when MotoGP™ comes to its new home in Wales.

The British MotoGP™ moves to the August Bank Holiday weekend (August 25-27*) in 2017 – and with the new earlier summer date, spectacular racing and three entertainment-fuelled days taking place at Silverstone, it’s going to be a race weekend not to be missed.

The best riders in the world will compete on the Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit in the race for the MotoGP™, Moto2™ and Moto3™ world titles – in what always turns out to be spectacular racing.

Who can forget the amazing 2016 race? There was everything that the fans and global TV audience look for. Cal Crutchlow, fresh from his maiden MotoGP™ win, qualified on pole and finished second after a thrilling race-long duel with Valentino Rossi, Marc Marquez, Andrea Iannone and Dani Pedrosa. Out in front, Maverick Vinales gave Suzuki its first win since its return to the championship and there was even a Red Flag following a massive crash involving Loris Baz and Pol Espargaro.

The on-track action promises to be just as exciting in 2017. But importantly for race fans and their families, there will be a big emphasis on family entertainment around the whole of Silverstone – with a massive Grand Prix Village hosting live bands on stage to entertain the crowds every night, a bigger family fairground, more displays and a bigger variety of food and drink outlets. And as Bank Holiday Monday follows the race day, there will be a big Race Day Party held after the racing has finished on Sunday evening.
