Shame, didn't even race it this year and they've gotten rid of it. Much rather that than the second Thruxton. Or even the national circuit.

Huge shame Silverstone International was dropped, I'm curious what was the reason behind it. Going twice to Thruxton seems pointless given two Silverstone layouts are just like two different racetracks.

Can't find the original story from a few years ago, but I thought it the idea was to rotate the extra round across the different circuits where possible. Maybe the plan was to have 2 rounds at Thruxton on alternate years, being BARC's home circuit.

I can understand dropping Silverstone International if they tried it and it didn't work that well, but seemingly it's been dropped without ever being used.

“We had a ‘spare’ round after Rockingham dropped out of the calendar after 2018, and we said we would move that event around the country. There are two visits to Thruxton in 2019, but we always had it in mind to look at other venues.

“Silverstone was keen for another round and it ticks the boxes because it has different layouts we can use. We will give the International circuit a try, and it will be great to be based out of the Wing pitlane.”

someone asked alan gow the silverstone question on his forum. his reply;

Silverstone themselves wanted their event on the National circuit, and not the International, for next year. It was entirely their decsion.
Just as it was also entirely their decision to have the one BTCC event and not take up the option of a second, for next year.

Well that solves it then. Shame really, would have been nice to see a different layout. Let's see if we still have racing of the highest order with this calendar, there is still plenty of good circuits on the calendar

BTCC is such a fan friendly event, I could never see that working stuck out in the wing anyway.

I have seen a few race meetings held from the Wing, only problem I can see is access for the pit lane walkabout/autograph session if you are on the outside of the track. But then again since the bridge was removed from the old start/finish straight, that isn't exactly much better either.

Are they building a bridge over the new start finish straight? Reason I ask is that in the newest F1 game, the Silverstone track has a bridge there now.

'The Hilton Garden Inn Silverstone will offer views of the circuit and connect directly to the Silverstone Wing pit and paddock complex via a bridge over the straight.'

...and will no doubt cost an eye watering arm & a leg to get a room.

Hotel 'officially' opens March 2021 but not taking reservations at the moment.

Interesting to find out that it is down to Silverstone - I bet it costs them more to put on a race through temporary facilities hence sticking to the national.
