untilNow entering its 28th season, the trail-blazing Silverstone Classic is firmly established as the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival featuring unparalleled grids of historic competition machinery, record-breaking anniversary parades plus epic in-field displays putting the spotlight on more than 10,000 classic cars. Live music from popular bands and a dazzling array of family entertainment all add to the annual high-octane extravaganza, which now regularly attracts more than 100,000 visitors. Staged at the country’s premier motor racing circuit, the 2018 Silverstone Classic will be held between 20-22 July, two weeks after the British Grand Prix. The date remains provisional, though, until the Formula One World Championship calendar is rubber-stamped by the FIA in December.
Featuring the full spectrum of glorious motorsport history from much-loved bygone eras, the colossal 22-race programme staged on the famous 3.7-mile Grand Prix circuit has once again attracted more than 1,000 entries, with many of the spectacular showdowns featuring massively oversubscribed grids. Record numbers of car clubs are turning out in force, too, with Saturday’s vast infield display areas entirely sold-out. In total, more than 10,000 beautiful classics will be on show over the three days with, as tradition now dictates, many clubs choosing to celebrate key model and marque milestones with special shows and track parades at what is unquestionably the summer’s standout automotive showcase. But, as ever, there’s much, much more to the Silverstone Classic than unprecedented numbers of peerless racing and road cars from yesteryear. The three-day blockbuster includes live music concerts from headline acts, dramatic live demos, interactive driving experiences, rides on the JET Big Wheel, crazy golf, air displays, a shopping village where the 2017 Silverstone Classic clothing range can be purchased, an adrenaline zone, traditional funfair rides, static displays, street car shootouts, Spitfire engine fire-ups, racing simulators and a host of other entertainment to keep all ages fully entertained. What’s more, all these fabulous activities – plus a host of others – are included absolutely FREE in the cost of admission. Tickets also offer access to trackside grandstands and both racing paddocks. This widely-praised ‘access-all-areas’ policy not only allows visitors the chance to really savour more racing action than is possible to see anywhere else in the world in one weekend but also the heaven-sent opportunity to relish all these wonderful racers up close.
