The Classic is a Silverstone favourite for families and race fans alike, a weekend-long action-packed summer staycation, taking place this year on July 30-August 1.
The world’s biggest classic motor racing festival combines the very best line-up of retro racing with flat-out family fun. Ranging from live music to head-turning car displays, hot air balloon lift offs, passenger rides, fun fair and crazy golf, the trackside excitement matches the duelling on the circuit, with more than 1,000 cars to watch race at the home of the Formula 1 British Grand Prix.
And you and a friend can be there on the final day. Business MK and its sister publications MK Pulse, Business Times and NN Pulse have two pairs of tickets to give away in conjunction with Classic Silverstone in our exclusive competition.
The star-studded races feature historic cars from across the last 100 years of motorsport racing wheel to wheel, representing the golden ages of Formula 1, Formula 2, GT, Sports and Touring Cars.
With grandstand seating included in the admission ticket price, everyone is on pole position to spectate. Visitors also have free access to the vast majority of the entertainment including funfair rides, driving experiences, stunt shows, the concerts and both racing paddocks.
The event’s charity partner Alzheimer’s Research UK is offering ‘behind the wheel’ simulators as part of its fundraising activity. And Sporting Bears, a motor club dedicated to raising funds for children’s charities, is running passenger rides in beautiful classic cars on the country roads around in return for a donation.
The Young Driver scheme gives children aged from ten to 17 their first taster driving experiences behind the wheel of a brand new dual-controlled Vauxhall Corsa, for just £5. Budding young football stars aged between five and 15 can prepare for the new soccer season under the expert guidance of Chelsea FC Foundation coaches at the Yokohama Chelsea Skills Zone.
The unrivalled schedule of races featuring legendary machines from motorsport’s golden eras is at the heart of The Classic. And this year’s programme is the best-ever.
The eye-catching Greatest Hits race line-up celebrates The Classic’s landmark 30th birthday in 2020. Stunning grids mark the 60th birthdays of two British design icons, the E-type Jaguar and Mini Cooper.
Vehicles with special milestones to celebrate will take to the famous track for impressive parades. This summer’s highlights include a record gathering of Triumph Stag, celebrating its 50th birthday. The DeLorean also turns 40 this year and the icon of the big screen will be out in force at this year’s event. Also celebrating its 50th birthday will be the stunning Lamborghini Countach.
These iconic cars are joined by an intriguing collection of the UK’s rarest cars as featured in The Telegraph.
