Silverstone Classic Celebrates 30th Anniversary this Year
The Silverstone Classic is a three day car and race event held at the Silverstone circuit, UK. British Racing Driver’s Club (BRDC) director and former Tourist Track (TT) winner Stuart Graham founded the event back in 1990, when he realized there was a lack of major events dedicated to historic racing cars.
Now dubbed as the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival, the Silverstone Classic features a variety of fun filled activities for car enthusiasts such as motor racing, car club displays, auctions, live music, camp outs, and even family entertainment such as stunt shows and Young Driver, an opportunity for 10-16 year olds to get behind the wheel and learn to drive responsibly.
This year, the Silverstone Classics is celebrating their 30th birthday with a bang. A special one off 30th anniversary celebration package has recently been announced for the event for car owners with classic pre-1990 vehicles. The three day weekend package is open to all classic cars that have already passed their 30th anniversary milestone.
Each 30th Anniversary Celebration Package includes two 3-day weekend tickets, a 30th Anniversary display area for all 3 days of the event, giving those attending with a pre-1990 car the opportunity to have their beloved classic displayed right in the heart of the event. In addition, there is also a unique opportunity for those buying a 30th Anniversary Celebration Package to drive a lap of the historic Grand Prix track.
