Currently the home of the Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix, this former wartime airfield circuit can boast being one of the world's foremost motorsport venues. Silverstone hosted the first ever round of the F1 World Championship in 1948, and over the years has developed to meet the needs of the modern sporting era. The circuit held the British Motorcycle Grand Prix for a decade, following the event's switch to the mainland from the Isle of Man and has staged World Superbike Championship action in recent years in addition to the domestic series. In 2010 BSB raced on the new Arena GP circuit for the first time.

Alex Lowes underlined his late bid to take the MCE Insurance British Superbike crown with a superb winning double.

In the opening race Lowes had to ride hard to overcome the early threat of Samsung Honda's Michael Laverty, taking the lead on the third lap, and then claiming his maiden victory from former two times title winner Shane Byrne who had overcome problems to his Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki that had prevented him from taking part in the morning warm-up.

Byrne and Laverty again made the early running in the second race with Lowes having to carve through from fifth place on the opening lap to take the lead only for a scary moment in which he was almost launched from the WFR Honda to leave him having to re-group. Lowes battled back but Byrne looked to be heading to his sixth victory of the season but going through Woodcote for the final time Lowes pulled off an audacious move to snatch the lead and then win the dash to the line by 0.042secs.
