2019 Silverstone Classic

These July, August, September months are always a busy time in my calendar. The events come thick & fast, one straight into another sometimes…. LOVE IT!!!

It’s July, so it’s time for the Silverstone Classic. One of my favourite events of the year & The 2019 Silverstone Classic weekend never disappoints.

This year there was the 100 years milestone of Bentley Motors to celebrate. Guaranteeing some lovely old BRG Bentleys on track.

Almost 50 years to the day Sir Jackie Stewart drove this Matra MS80-02 to victory here in the 1969 British Grand Prix.

It was great to see him reunited with the car & pop in a couple of quick laps in front of his admiring fans

Another celebration race this year’s the crowds would be treated to, was a massive grid of 60 Mini Cooper Ss. Wheel to wheel close racing, lead swapping mid bend for lap after lap was brilliant to watch.

The very quick Aston Martin WEC driver Darren Turner on his was to victory

The Masters Historic Racing Series, Endurance Legends returned for their now traditional end to Saturday slot. To add to the Bentley theme the Le Mans winning Bentley Speed Eight made its UK competitive racing debut

These awesome flame spitting Le Mans beasts promised & delivered their fantastic spectacle as the light faded.

It really is no surprise the action on & off track has made the Silverstone Classic the massive success its become. The worlds largest Classic Car racing festival!
