The legendary Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit is to host an invitational nine-up team time trial on August 10 2012, organised by Bicester Millennium Cycling Club.
BMCC has said that 42 teams out of a maximum field of 50 squads have already expressed an interest in the event, thought to be the largest of its kind ever to take place in Britain.
Teams will have to complete three laps of the Silverstone Circuit, totalling around 11 miles. The action kicks off at 7pm on Friday, August 10.
Squads will use road bikes rather than time trial bikes.
According to BMCC, invitations are limited to teams from British UCI, Elite level cycling, Formula One, the Armed Forces and select BC affiliated clubs. Interested parties can contact BMCC by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event will raise money for the Help the Heroes and Silverstone charities.
More information can be found on the Bicester Millennium Cycling Club website.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
