- Silverstone organisers still hope to save British Grand Prix
- Cricket and Champions League may also be affected
For 70 years it has been a fixture in the sporting summer, with motor racing legends such as Stirling Moss, Ayrton Senna and Lewis Hamilton all taking the chequered flag. But now the British Grand Prix is under threat after sporting bodies failed to win an initial exemption from strict new quarantine rules for incoming travellers to the UK.
Government sources have told the Guardian that they still hope that a solution might be found to allow two races to be staged at Silverstone on 26 July and 2 August – with suggestions that Formula One personnel could yet be included in a revised list of exemptions in three weeks’ time.
