After a homecoming last week, the Canadian eMotorsports Network Formula 1 Series will return to the sport’s roots as drivers will tackle the iconic Silverstone Circuit for the seventh round of the season, the Cracked Device Co. British Grand Prix.
The live broadcast will begin tonight at 7:30 p.m. EST with the pre-race show, which will also include live qualifying beginning at 7:40 p.m. EST, followed immediately by the race itself.
Corbin MacAulay will look to make it three straight victories in his number 80 Hurricanes eMotorsports Honda after following up his victory in Austria with a dominant performance at last week’s Fix Auto Charlottetown Canadian Grand Prix.
MacAulay’s recent run of form has him within 15 points of American Zach Sullivan, whose North Border Racing Ferrari has topped the driver standings for the entire season.
Meanwhile, North Border Racing continues to top the constructors table with 125 points after six races, good for a 25-point lead over second-place Alpha Flow F1 Racing, which still has its status as the only team to have both drivers claim points in every race this season.
Silverstone is the second-longest circuit the drivers will encounter this season, with 18 turns covering 5.891 km. After a high-speed opening sequence, drivers will need to brake hard into the Village and Loop corners, accelerating out of the Aintree left-hander onto the Wellington Straight.
After negotiating the Brooklands and Luffield turns, it’s another high-speed exit out of Woodcote onto the old start-finish straight into Copse, a fast right-hander that leads into the complex Maggotts-Becketts-Chapel sequence.
From there, it’s onto the Hangar Straight before coming to the right-hander named Stowe, then onto the short Vale straight before getting into the Club corner and completing the lap.
Here is a look at the standings entering round seven.
