Silverstone Classic 2018 Press Day
The Silverstone Classic is largest Classic Motor Racing Festival in the world. It attracts over 100,000 visitors over the 3 day weekend event.
More than 1,000 of the most valuable and revered competition cars from yesteryear attend the meeting. They compete over 20 races held around the full Silverstone Grand Prix circuit, often resulting in fierce competitive wheel to wheel action. Some of these cars are worth millions of pounds, yet this doesn’t stop their drivers driving hard for the that covered top step on the podium.
2018 Press Day…
Many teams & drivers had taken up the opportunity to bring their cars along to Press Day. It provides a great chance for an extra Test Session or 2 before the main event in the Summer. Some celebrity drivers take the opportunity to come along to talk to the Media & for photo calls to promote their races. A much relaxed atmosphere is felt throughout the garages, but don’t be thinking these drivers won’t be pushing hard. Out on track these beautiful cars are not pottling about for an afternoon drive around this world famous track!! The kitty little was visited on more than one occasion….
A whole range of Historic & Classic cars with decades of motorsport history behind them take to the track through the day. Some beautiful old classic cars last seen amongst the tweed at Goodwood. The incredibly fast open wheel racers of the 1960s Brabhams & Ferraris. Right up to the fairly modern cars of BTCC & the awesome Le Mans Prototypes all took their turn to exit the Pit Lane.
The noise & smell from the Castrol R out of these fantastic machines can’t help get you excited. Looking at the calendar & counting down the days until we can enjoy 3 whole days of action!!!
