Cars on Track at Silverstone Classic

The Silverstone Classic is a historic race meeting with everything from pre-war racers, to 1950s-80s F1 cars, to sport cars all either competing or on display throughout the weekend.  As well as thrilling track action and epic stunts, the Classic hosts great entertainment for all the family with delicious food, fairground rides and live music including Rick Astley performing on Sunday.  There is also an electric car area where some manufacturers are offering test drives (although not on the race track!).

The Goodwood record-holding car will be on static display in the International Paddock near pit 26 for all three days.  Team members will also be on hand to answer questions about Goodwood and McMurtry’s future cars.
