The British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC) said in a statement that the agreement does not include the management or development of Silverstone Circuit.

“MEPC has paid 32 million pounds for a long-term lease. This payment has allowed the BRDC to pay off its long and short-term loans from Lloyds Banking Group and Northamptonshire County Council,” the statement said.
