Formerly known as the Silverstone Classic, ‘The Classic, Silverstone‘ is a three-day summer festival of fast cars and family fun held at the iconic Silverstone circuit. This year in 2021 there will be added celebration as the event will be marking its 30th anniversary a year late, after the event was cancelled in 2020 due to Covid.
Over a long weekend every July, the event features hundreds of historic race cars, displays from over 100 car clubs with more than 10,000 classic cars, free access to interactive activities, dynamic demonstrations, live music on Friday and Saturday evenings, a shopping village and lots more.
The Classic 2021 will feature the cream of historic racing action from Formula One, Sports Cars, GT and Touring Car grids with over 20 races and demonstrations, and over 1,000 race entries.
Not only that, but there’s full access to the paddocks where you can get close to the cars and talk to the drivers and race preparers.
Friday is for qualifying with the chance to see every grid on track, whilst Saturday and Sunday host a packed schedule of races each day.
