Hotel development at Silverstone circuit

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has advised the British Racing Drivers Club (BRDC), owners of the world-famous Silverstone motor racing circuit (Northamptonshire, England), on the sale and development of a 197 room hotel.

The Hilton Garden Inn Silverstone, which is due to open in 2020, will include a rooftop terrace and offer race-day hospitality experiences for all the major sporting events held at the venue. The hotel will be constructed on Silverstone’s International Pits straight, with extensive views overlooking the track. The hotel will enhance the circuit’s offering outside of the race calendar and have direct access, via a cross-circuit footbridge, to The Silverstone Wing Conference Centre — Silverstone’s iconic event venue, with 12,500 square meters of flexible space for up to 3,000 people.

Norton Rose Fulbright advised with a team including real estate partner Nick Clayson (Picture), Charlotte Tullis and Alice Hunter Johnston.
