London didn't try to hard to keep FE did it though and that ticked all the emmision, pollution, air quality, climate boxes in one hit, so I can't see them breaking their backs to disrupt London with trying to create a GP track.

Unfortunately Wandsworth BC dropped a clanger and breached their own planning regulations - that appears to be the undertone of the private legal case that took place, anyway, although it was all done privately and has remained so. It's a shame, because the events themselves were superb.

In other news, London will be disrupted tomorrow afternoon/evening by F1 anyway. A stage has gone up in Trafalgar Square and teams will be running cars nearby, some modern, some historic.

I'll try to get some photos, but it might be tricky because I'll be there in a marshalling capacity

How much will ticket prices go up by? I am not too bothered about the F1 ticket prices, however I am bothered about other series that have to race there.
Silverstone isn't exactly a bargain for any meeting is it? Certainly not when you take into account the awful view from spectator areas.

Yet it still sells out. Must be something in that, mustn't there?

Well, i'm not sure how true it is, however I seem to recall a 5-10 price hike about 3 years ago for a lot of events, so quite how much other events subsidise the "loss making" F1 event is open to question.

And yes, the viewing is pretty poor all over. However I am appreciative of the photography holes in the fences. Even though they seem to be open at times then closed another, and also security enforced like a totalitarian state on one weekend, and then totally open season on another.

I love the fact that the people who are in the sport are always enjoying the British GP and they are hopefully more than a little bit willing to keep the GP on the calendar for the next few years and more

I just hope Liberty find a better deal than Bernie did, because an F1 season without the British GP would be a travesty

Why do we think Liberty are doing a London demo? This is a taster to see how the authorities, sponsors and fans take to London as a venue.

The WEC meeting is exceptionally good value in my view. 40 odd for a three day event floats my boat.....

I've never subscribed to the view that the spectators view is wholly awful. There are plenty of places you can watch exciting cars from. Mind you, that is now the only event I attend at Silverstone.

Maybe Adam but Liberty have always said they want the British GP but not specified at Silverstone. Maybe London could get a Monaco type deal with no hosting fee and a joint venture promotion with Liberty.

It may well be at Silverstone in 2020, but I think a London GP is much more of a serious prospect with Liberty than it was with BE and CVC.
