Motor Racing: Silverstone cuts curves
Monday 30 May 1994
The plans, which it will submit to FIA, the sport's world governing body, were discussed by the Grand Prix Drivers' Association in Barcelona on Thursday and
endorsed unanimously, the circuit said in a statement.
The proposed changes will tighten and slow Copse Corner, Stowe Corner, Abbey Curve, Priory Corner and the pit-lane entrance. In addition, gravel traps and tyre walls will be extended and certain kerbing lowered. The changes are aimed at providing a safer arena for racing, improved overtaking opportunities and more spectator appeal, the statement said. The overhaul is planned to be completed before the British Grand Prix on 10 July.
The package was announced following last Tuesday's accident at the circuit when the Portuguese driver Pedro Lamy crashed during testing, shattering both his kneecaps. Lamy's place in the Lotus team was taken by Alessandro Zanardi for yesterday's Spanish Grand Prix.
