There are many classic car events around the world which celebrate and pay homage to the years of motorsport that seem like a long-lost distant memory. For us one of those key events is Silverstone Classic. We are really going to miss it this year and would have spent three days there between 31st July to 2nd August.
This family friendly classic racing festival would have been celebrating 30 years this year, but it’s now deferred to next year with provisional dates planned for 30th July to 1st August 2020. Where did it all start? Well here is a little bit of history for you…. In the 1980s, the Monterey Car Week that featured the Monterey Historic Reunion at Laguna Seca, was already a well-established event in the small (but burgeoning) calendar of historic racing events. This event, as well as others its kind, prompted Stuart Graham, former race car driver, to organise a similar festival in the UK on the circuit that hosted the British Grand Prix, Silverstone – Silverstone Classic was born.
At Silverstone Classic there is no doubt that the cars are the stars. It showcases all cars from the sport of motor racing, from iconic single seaters and magical GTs, through to much-loved touring cars and dramatic sports prototypes.
This classic event isn’t just about the paddocks either, it’s always brimming with privately owned classic cars and it’s a joy to attend for many car clubs. With Silverstone Classic Auction you can even bid on something beautiful from yesteryear to make your very own.
This fabulous event which provides a vast celebration of automotive and motorsport history takes in classic car gatherings, parades, live music, grand prix motorbike demonstrations and more will be sorely missed.
We’re reliving our memories from last year. Here’s a gallery to show the weekend’s atmosphere and track action from around the circuit.
