Silverstone Classic: Where business and sport work together

Over the weekend there'll be more than 10,000 cars at the Silverstone Classic festival.

And they won't just be racing: they'll be sold as well. Bosses are predicting sales of the classic cars will almost hit £6.5 million.

Silverstone Classic is a case of business and sport working together.

It's been announced that the Silverstone circuit in Northamptonshire will not host next year's motorcycle Grand Prix.

Thousands of fans were at Silverstone last weekend for the British MotoGP - the fifth year it had been held there.

MotoGP organisers have signed a deal to stage the event at a new circuit in Wales, which has not been built yet. So it's been agreed that next year's race will be at Donington Park in Leicestershire.

Police have increased their patrols at the MotoGP British Grand Prix at Silverstone this weekend as a result of the increased terror threat nationally - but have stressed there is no specific threat to the event.

A spokesman said there would be more officers and they would be more visible as they carried out checks both at the circuit and at campsites.

Visitors to the site were urged to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity as soon as possible.

"You will be aware that, in the past 24 hours, the Home Secretary has raised the threat level to the UK from international terrorism to Severe, meaning an attack is highly likely - this applies to the UK as a whole not a specific area.

"Please be reassured there is no specific threat, however, security and policing at the event will be enhanced and more visible, and race goers will see an increase in security and policing presence during the weekend."
