Silverstone will not feature on the British Touring Car Championship calendar for the first time since the series was created in 1958.
Silverstone management has been unable to agree a date with series head Alan Gow. Instead one has been awarded to Rockingham.
Problems stem from the final round of 2006, when a bumper crowd resulted in traffic chaos and Gow was heavily critical of the circuit.
“It’s a shame that fans will not be able to watch the BTCC at Silverstone for the first time in its history,” said Richard Phillips, MD at Silverstone.
