Firmly established as one of the world’s biggest and best motor racing festivals – The 24th Edition of the Silverstone classic is set to be its most spectacular yet.
Last year’s Silverstone classic was a record breaker with 23 races featuring an unprecedented 1113 entries that spanned the full spectrum of historic motorsport, with a three day attendance of more than 90,000 people, being another first for the event.
Building upon last year’s success, this year’s eagerly awaited festival is already breaking records through attracting its largest ever turn out of motor clubs as well as a noticeable increase in ticket sales. At this year’s Silverstone classic, no less and 93 clubs will be displaying in excess of 9000 classic cars on the infield.
The Silverstone classic has always focussed on the quantity and quality, with countless Grand Prix and Le Mans winning cars and drivers, with unrivalled on-track competitive action being their main attraction.
New Grids for the 90s GT legends and F3 cars from the legendary Nigel Mansell and Ayrton Senna have attracted high turnout and join favourites such as F1 cars and group C prototypes that race into the sunset.
Every year the Silverstone classic attracts more and more legendary drivers to the event and 2014 is set to deliver. With no fewer than five former BTCC champions joining the festivities along with Matt Neil and Gordon Sheddon making their classic debuts, as well as Colin Turkington.
Another racing legend you can expect to see on the day is Rob Huff. The 2012 World Touring Car Champion will be joining the touring grid in a Ford Mondeo and will also be competing against rock legend, AC/DC front man Brian Johnson.
