With current owners the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC) struggling to pay its race fees to Bernie Ecclestone, it emerged this week that the circuit in rural Northamptonshire could be bought by the Indian-owned Jaguar Land Rover.
A Jaguar spokesman told the Telegraph: “We continually look to invest and grow our business operations in the UK and constantly evaluate a wide range of opportunities which are confidential.”
And a spokesman for the BRDC added: “The British Racing Drivers’ Club receives confidential approaches from a number of different parties attracted to the iconic Silverstone circuit and considers these on their merits.
“Should an attractive offer be received from any party, the BRDC board would seek a mandate from club members before progressing it. We have no further comments to make on the recent press reports,” he added.
