Penton UK Ltd played a small but significant role in the redevelopment of Silverstone motor racing circuit, which was started in November 2009 and completed in May 2011. This work has put the UK track back up with the top Formula 1 venues in the world.

The magnificent new pit and paddock complex and conferencing facility named the Silverstone Wing cost £27 million and was built after the British Racing Drivers' Club (BRDC), which owns the venue in Northamptonshire, signed a 17-year contract to host the British Grand Prix.

Penton supplied the vast majority of the public address and voice alarm loudspeakers, which were specified for Silverstone's new wing by building services contractor NG Bailey and installed by fire and security specialist ADT.

Penton loudspeakers have been installed in five different sites around the imposing three-story building, which was designed by the architects also responsible for the London Olympic stadium. The complex offers new garages, a race control building, hospitality suites, a media office and new VIP spectator zones and a primary paddock.
