|The future not looking so murky, after all.
Silverstone have today revealed on their twitter feed that the World Superbike round planned for 2nd to the 4th of August will in fact proceed as planned, despite speculation that the meeting was due to be cancelled as a result of financial difficulties at the circuit.
Last month, German motorsports website Speedweek.de reported that the British round of WSBK was to be replaced by the Turkish Istanbul circuit. The Turkish round will also be going ahead, though instead it reportedly replaces Brno, in the Czech Republic.
Said financial issues with the British circuit have been well publicised in the last several years. The rumours flared just days after Dorna declared that MotoGP will be running out of the old national pits, rather than the multi million pound complex – The Silverstone Wing. It has also been reported today that World Superbikes (now also under the Dorna umbrella), will also be using the national pits.
Fans who have already bought tickets can now rest assured that they won’t have to chase up various refunds from the circuit…
