RETRO-FACT   Even today it‘s not difficult to image Silverstone started out in life as a WW2 airfield. The first race (unofficial) took place in September 1947 when Maurice Geoghegan and eleven other drivers competed around the two-mile long track. Maurice wrote-off his car when he killed a wayward sheep and from then on the race became well known as the 'Mutton Grand Prix'. In 1985 Keke Rosberg put in a fastest average lap speed of 159mph. Good job the farmer did a better job that year.
