At last common sense has prevailed. Donington never really had a chance and a lot of people lost out badly through attempting to pull off the impossible but of course that does not include Ecclestone.

I'm with you mate. Boring track and naf facilities. The only good thing is the access.

I do hope they spend some money on the old place and not just keep tarmacing over the grass!

I bet all the investment goes on pits/ hospitality and a few expensive grandstands.
No one gives a sh** about Mr average paying a mere £100+

It would have been great viewing at Donington with the undulations

I've only been to Silverstone recently in hospitality and it was great, but last time I went slumming it was way back in 96 with a £25 Gold Reserve weekend ticket for ITC and F3000 which was good value including pit lane walkabout and paddock tranfer. The same level ticket for the GP that year was nearly £350. I dread to think what it would cost now.

I'd have paid good money to go to Donnington, but not Silverstone. I'll more than likely go to Monza or Spa.

Simon Gillett screwed up Donnington as did Bernie for not doing proper due diligence and allowing the future of the British GP to be placed in his hands.

Still goods news the race's future has been secured.
