Prince Harry promotes British motorsport at Silverstone

Prince Harry has been meeting what could be the next generation of engineers on a trip to Northamptonshire.

He's spent the day touring a college next to the Silverstone race track to mark the beginning of building work on a new project.

A new interactive exhibition called the Silverstone Heritage Experience aims to celebrate British motorsport history, and inspire more youngsters into the industry.

Prince Harry will be the Royal Patron of the experience, which hopes to attract half a million people to the area.

Having given it the green light, building work can now begin on the £20 million project.
