There may be just one day to go, but places are still available for race three of the USN Votwo Duathlon Series at Silverstone this Thursday.

Taking place on the actual Formula One racing circuit used in last Sunday's British Grand Prix, the duathlon is expected to have a field of 150 athletes.

Race headquarters will be based at the new Porsche Driving Experience centre, with the event consisting of a two-mile run, 10-mile bike ride and further two-mile run.

Event organiser Ben Mason said: "The fact that we're using the Grand Prix circuit, just days after the British Grand Prix on Sunday, is fantastic. We're using the same circuit for the race, and it's going to be a great occasion.

"The course is traffic free, fast and exciting, cycling around the Formula One racetrack is a great boost for athletes.

"The venue is ideal for spectators too, and I'm sure there will be plenty of people cheering on friends and family."

Entry cost is £25, with teams allowed to enter for £35. Online entries close the day before the race, with entries taken on the night costing a further £2. The action gets under way at 7pm. For further information, check out www.votwo.co.uk

If you can't make it on tomorrow, there's one more chance to race at this iconic venue in Race Four of the series on Monday, 2 August.
