Best of British

This year's race is the second since Silverstone's return to the MotoGP calendar and the first to take place at the circuit since the construction of the new ?27 million pit and paddock complex. It has taken 54 weeks and 110,000 man hours but the new facilities have been opened ahead of schedule to much acclaim.

Even the F1 fraternity appears to be impressed, with Red Bull's Christian Horner who was present at the media launch of the facilities claiming: "It's fantastic. It puts Silverstone right up with the best in the world. It's quite staggering, the scale of what's been built here."

The new facilities and continuous improvements to spectator areas mean that British motor racing fans can now hold their heads high. Additionally, there will be a new British star to cheer on in this year's MotoGP race, with Cal Crutchlow riding for the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team.

The 25 year old has made a solid start to his career in the category, but will be hoping to move things up a gear at his home race - on a track he won at in World Superbikes last season.

Additionally, British fans are sure to be supporting home grown Moto2 stars Bradley Smith, Scott Redding and Kev Coghlan - not to mention Danny Kent, Taylor Mackenzie, Danny Webb and Harry Stafford in the 125cc class.
