New Donington F1 Circuit

Last year good ol’ Bernie announced that the British Grand Prix would be moving from its home at Silverstone to Donington.

Donington is a great circuit, and hosted one of the most exciting first laps I’ve ever seen back in 1993 (check it out below).  To handle a modern GP however it was always going to need a heap of development.

Over on the BBC News site today they’ve got a video from a simulation of the new track layout.  It’s looking pretty good so far, and from what I hear work is already starting on the changes.

Here’s that first lap I mentioned…
