This just in from BBC online:-

The 2002 British Grand Prix at Siverstone will go ahead, despite concerns over local traffic problems.
At a meeting in Monte Carlo the motorsport's governing body, the FIA, opted to maintain the track's championship status.

The decision followed an offer by the track's management group of a 3.4m 'performance bond', guaranteeing that promised work on traffic flow improvements will be completed prior to the race date of 7 July.

Silverstone officials have also pledged to spend 60m on the circuit, including an advance of 10.6m to bring the track up to standard in time for next year's event.

Leading figures in Britain, including former world champion Jackie Stewart, have expressed support for the venue.

And Sports Minister Richard Caborn welcomed the FIA's decision.

"I'm delighted that the race will go ahead," he said on Friday.

The race was originally listed in the provisional calendar for next season with an asterisk - its confirmation dependent on the outcome of an enquiry into the traffic problems by the British Motor Sports Association (MSA).

The MSA made clear in a statement on Wednesday that it backed the promoters' efforts and said there were "material and noticeable improvements to the traffic flow in 2001."

Bypass access

Race promoters, Octagon Motorsport, this week tried to allay the FIA's fears about access to the Northamptonshire circuit.

Their investment includes plans to improve access roads, circuit entrances and car parking, as well as introducing a park-and-ride scheme.

A Silverstone bypass is currently under construction, and Octagon plans to add to existing lanes around the circuit to improve the flow of traffic to and from the bypass.

and ... this in too (btw stop quoting BBC - technically they are my opposition)

The FIA hve insisted on a 3.5m performance bond from Octogan which will be withheld if the event on July 7 is not up to an acceptable standard.

We running that it wasn't an "offer" from Octogan but a demand!

Bernie Eccleslug has since come out and said that Silverstone should pay for the road improvements and not the government. Since when was it any of his bloody business?

If the Beeb are your opposition who do you "support?":confused:

Apparently Tony Blair& friends helped secure Silverstone's place. Can't believe it. Although Ken Clarke would have helped sort out Silverstone long ago
