London street demo on the cards


Formula 1 could be heading to London for a demonstration run after a new law was passed allowing motorsports on public roads.

Formula 1’s new bosses, Liberty Media, are in talks with Westminster City Council regarding a demo run that would take place in the build-up to the British GP.

A Westminster City Council spokesperson said: “Officers from the Greater London Authority and Westminster City Council have met with event organisers about a potential showcase event in central London, not a race.

“Discussions are at a very early stage and as such nothing has been agreed.”

The proposed event would take place on July 12, two days before the drivers take to the Silverstone circuit for FP1 for the British GP.
