The roof of The Wing – Silverstone Circuit’s £27 million corporate building – has been blown off in stormy winds.
As strong winds hammered most of the UK, part of the Wing’s roof has blown off with significant damage to a larger section.
Built in 2011, the Wing pit complex and conference rooms launched a new era for the Northamptonshire circuit as it moved into the 21st century.
A statement from Silverstone read: “During a period of extreme weather that hit Northamptonshire on Sunday afternoon and again on Monday night the Silverstone site experienced some wind damage, the most significant being to the roof of the Silverstone Wing.”
“The engineers are currently assessing the damage and working with us to ensure minimal disruption to our customers while repairs are taking place
