Theyre modifying the boring bits, read straights, of the old one though, so I don't think they'll ruin it, I just hope they dont up the prices too much for tickets, trackdays to try get back some cash. The Dunlop Bridge is gone, i was reading about them unassembling it last week I think, it would clash with the sponsors apparently. There is word they will erect it elsewhere in the grounds.

Will they still be running track days there this year while all this stuff is being built?

haha, imagine the track session where they opened the new parts, you could have 2 sessions in the morning on the old circuit, lunch, then 2 sessions in the afternoon on the new circuit :D
