A radio station operating on a restricted service licence has started broadcasting today covering the Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix.
Silverstone Radio will air 24/7 on 87.7FM from the circuit, headed up by well known motor sport presenters Gary Champion and Alan Hyde.
The station, returning for another year, will feature live commentary of race meetings, phone-in competitions and campsite visits.
Richard Phillips, Managing Director of Silverstone Circuit, commented “We have been running Silverstone Radio at our events for many years now and it is incredibly well received by the fans. There is not currently a UK radio station that is dedicated to motor sport, so we decided to take a concept that works so well at events and expand it into a 24/7 operation, to entertain, inform and interact with motor sport fans around the country.”
