Organizers of this week's British Grand Prix Formula One race say that the competition will go ahead as scheduled despite Thursday's bombings in Central London.

Race organizers said in a statement that the Silverstone course has a well-established set of security measures that have been planned in detail with police and other agencies.

The statement said that organizers are confident the security is adequate to ensure the safety of all attending the race Sunday. Practice for the race is Friday with qualifying on Saturday.

The event was disrupted two years ago when a kilted protester ran onto the track during the race.
