Post Silverstone (F1) On The Silver Screen


The popular Studio 35 movie theater (3055 Indianola Ave., Columbus, OH) introduced live telecasts of the world-famous Formula One auto racing series with its presentation of the 2007 Grand Prix of Monaco. This summer’s series continues with the British Grand Prix June 21, held this summer for the last time in the hallowed Silverstone circuit, revered for its history--beginning as an airfield during WWII--and ridiculed for its ageing facilities.

Up to this point, the 2009 season has been an eye-opener, with the neophyte Brawn GP team running away with wins largely due to its taking advantage of new regulations. Still, upsetting the traditional order, with Ferrari struggling and McLaren not even on the radar, has provided a breath of fresh air. The British GP promises to be the most evenly matched this year, with the early advantage afforded Brawn chipped away by several other advancing teams.

As this race and the next two are broadcast on Fox TV, they are tape delayed, the cars rolling off at 3 pm. with no pre-race show. The bar, with its terrific beer menu, will be open and pizzas and subs will be available.

The Formula One series was established just over 50 years ago, formalizing the tradition of Grand Prix racing now more than 100 years old. The British Grand Prix run at Silverstone, previously an airfield, was the site in 1950 of the first ever World Championship race, won by Giuseppe Farina in an Alfa Romeo.

F1 is said to compete with soccer for the title of the biggest sport in the world; some sources estimate as many as 500 million fans view each race. Run exclusively on challenging road and street courses by cars constantly refined with aerospace caliber technology, Formula One is truly the pinnacle of motor sport not to mention its most glamorous.

Admission for this special broadcast of the British Grand Prix is just $5. For more information, call (614) 261-1581 or go online to
