Silverstone absent from 2018 MotoGP draft calendar

The Northamptonshire track has hosted Britain’s MotoGP round since 2010 after the event moved away from long-time home Donington Park, which held the race from 1987 to 2009.

Silverstone made a deal with the Circuit of Wales to continue holding the event after the proposed Ebbw Vale-based facility signed a five-year deal with series promoter Dorna covering 2015-19.
