Neil England has quit his high-profile role at Silverstone after recent changes by the British Racing Drivers' Club.

The BRDC has dissolved the board of Silverstone Holdings Limited, of which England had been chairman for the last six years, as part of a new restructuring process.

These changes were made in the wake of the investment deal struck last September with commercial property company MEPC, who acquired a long lease on the existing Silverstone Industrial Estate and development land around the outside of the circuit.

England was instrumental in recent investments in the circuit, most notably the £27m 'Wing' pit and paddock complex, but with MEPC in place, England has decided the time was right for him to move on.

BRDC chairman John Grant said: "The BRDC board wishes to thank Neil for his hard work, tenacity and commitment to Silverstone during his six years as chairman of SHL.

"He should be proud of everything he has achieved during that time and the significant contribution he has made to Silverstone.

"Off the back of a very successful Formula One British Grand Prix, he leaves the business and the circuit well positioned and the BRDC Board wishes him well."
