A beautiful county in the heart of England. It can be one of the quietest or loudest places in the country (depending on whether there's a Formula One race on at Silverstone or not). Home to bluebell fields, farmlands, ancient woods and rivers and lakes teaming with fish, this county is a beauty to behold. It also houses Silverstone motor raceinf circuit - 'The Home of British Motorsport' and Rockingham Motor Speedway - the country's only US style racing circuit, which doubles as a concert venue.
