The owners of Silverstone from the Club of British racers (BRDC) would like to every year to hold the British Grand Prix on the same dates, so that the race weekend coincides with the first week of Wimbledon, and the race does not overlap with the decisive match in the men’s final and the World Cup finals cricket

BRDC Executive Director Stuart Pringle discussed this opportunity with the FOM. In Liberty Media are ready to meet, but warned about possible problems due to the UK exit from the European Union.

Stuart Pringle: “We told the FOM about our preferences. But I understand their concerns about the possible queues at customs next year because of Brexit: if the British Grand Prix will be held a week earlier and doubled with another European race, unwanted risks will arise.

In the spring, I received a letter from the government informing me that during the first six months or a year after Brexit, any arriving trailers could stand on the border for three to four days. In this case, we just do not have time for a week to build a paddock of Formula 1, so I agreed that between the races should be two weeks, and that complicates everything. ”
