Party co-chairman in the driving seat at Silverstone Circuit
Conservative Party co-chairman Amanda Milling MP visited The Silverstone Experience with Buckingham MP Greg Smith.
The pair met Stuart Pringle, managing director of Silverstone Circuit, and Sally Reynolds, chief executive of The Silverstone Experience, at the motorsport museum that tells the story of the circuit’s history and features iconic racing cars and bikes from the last 70 years.
Amanda, whose father was involved in the vintage car scene, said: “Having spent much of my childhood at Silverstone, it was great to return and see all that the museum has to offer and their plans for the future.
“In these difficult times, the Silverstone Experience has adapted to ensure they are Covid-19 secure so families and motoring fans can enjoy a day out safely.”
Stuart Pringle said: “It was a pleasure to welcome Amanda and Greg to Silverstone and we appreciated the opportunity to discuss with them the challenges we are currently facing
“While we have seen some of our business return to a sense of normality, there is still a degree of uncertainty about the future and when we may once again be able to open the venue for large-scale events and conferences.”
Greg Smith said: “The Silverstone Experience is an incredible new museum, which only formally opened not long before lockdown began.
“It offers fun and nostalgia for all motorsport fans, as well as being a superb educational facility, teaching young people the science behind racing cars and bikes.
"They are open, with first class Covid-19 secure measures that enable visitors to enjoy everything they have to offer. Do support them.”
