Formula 1 British Grand Prix 2010 will take place on the Silverstone Circuit. Silverstone Circuit is a motor racing circuit next to the Northamptonshire, England villages of Silverstone and Whittlebury. Nearly half of the circuit is across the Northamptonshire boundary in Buckinghamshire. The closest large towns are Northampton and Milton Keynes, but the Northamptonshire towns of Towcester and Brackley are extremely close by. It is best known as the home of the British Grand Prix, which it first hosted in 1948 and which has been held on the circuit every year since 1987. The circuit is also home to the BRDC International Trophy, formerly one of the premier non-Championship F1 races in the calendar, today awarded to the winner of a race for historic F1 cars at the annual Silverstone Classic meeting.
