Silverstone unveils new road

THE new Dadford Road dual carriageway was opened yesterday by Formula 3000 Champion Justin Wilson driving a Jordan-Honda F1 car. Wilson made two high-speed runs on the new section of road, a publicity stunt intended to draw attention to the new access road which, it is hoped, will greatly reduce the delays for fans arriving and leaving at the British Grand Prix.

Work continues on the Silverstone bypass but it is unlikely that this will be finished in time for the Grand Prix.
