Advance the above clip to 0:54 secs and you will get to the new start/finish position for the British GP at Silverstone. It's the culmination of a multi year renewal plan which has included a madification to the layout first seen in 2010 and completed this year with the opening of the new pit and paddock complex on the opposite end of the track.

So no more 180 mph Copse after the start, the new turn 1 is Abbey but all the first lap action will potentially be in the "new" Arena section turns: Village, Aintree and then after the Wellington Straight into the Luffield loop.

It should be nice improvement and it's great to see investment being made in a classic racing facility like Silverstone. The British classic has worked hard to expand beyond just the Grand Prix and into a full fledged "experience".
Silverstone now offers a complete rage of "experiences" ranging from single seater driver to "hot laps" to car control clinics and racing schools. find more at Silverstone.co.uk.
Also at Silverstone is iZone Racing, a driving training facility with services for racers ranging from simulator to media to mental training. Below is a clip of their simulator. You can ride it for about 60 Euro per hour and apparently even Michael Schumacher got motion sickness the first time he tried it!
