Further plans for the latest illustrious chapter in the Silverstone Classic’s remarkable history have been announced, with just one week remaining for Club members to take advantage of the early bird ticket offer savings.
All the highly successful ingredients that have attracted more than 100,000 visitors for the past two summers are back on the packed three-day entertainment programme, now further embellished with some notable new innovations and additions to deliver even more great family entertainment.
This year’s standout bill features exciting new races, a special world record anniversary parade, more off-track entertainment for all ages than ever before, the largest ever car club attendance, evocative live music concerts with chart-topping songs from the sixties and eighties plus an impressive line-up of racing celebrities.
“We have a stellar event lined up for this summer,” confirmed Nick Wigley, CEO of event organiser, Goose Live Events. “We are constantly reviewing every aspect of the Silverstone Classic, and feedback has taught us that its three key attributes for fans are the absolute quality, scale and breadth of the racing content, our access all areas policy and the all-inclusive nature of the tickets.
“It’s a fantastic event packed full of entertainment, and we will continue to build upon all the positive elements from last year’s spectacular. Ticket sales are currently up 17 per cent on the same stage in 2016, which is very encouraging, and we are selling far more three-day tickets than ever before. We already have a record number of car clubs registered to attend, too, so all the signs are pointing to the biggest and best Silverstone Classic yet.”
Indeed, with the largest number of competition cars and the widest variety of historic racing grids seen anywhere on earth, the Silverstone Classic is the premier event on the international historic racing calendar.
As ever, this summer’s unrivalled bill includes all of Europe’s leading historic racing championships for Formula One, single-seater, GT, touring and sportscars from motor sport’s most celebrated eras – with some 130 iconic cars turning out to test today. The weekend will pack in an impressive 23 races in total – many boasting in excess of 50 entries.
Porsche Club will be returning to the Classic this summer, with members able to enjoy discounted entry, infield parking, Club hospitality and exclusive grandstand access. We are also pleased to confirm a Club barbecue at the Porsche Experience Centre on Saturday 29th July, as well as driving experiences on the day.
Places for both are strictly limited so we would encourage members to book early to avoid disappointment. More details about the Club’s presence at Silverstone Classic can be found using the link below:
