Tickets for next summer’s sparkling 30th anniversary Silverstone Classic have gone on sale, offering a one-off special 30th-anniversary celebration package for all those lucky enough to own a classic car that dates back to the days before Silverstone hosted its very first historic festival in 1990. The Silverstone Classic is firmly established as the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival. The epic event – in 2020 celebrating the 30th anniversary of its inauguration – attracts more than 1,000 race entries and draws crowds of more than 100,000.
The original game-changing event which has subsequently spawned numerous retro-racing gatherings all over the globe as well as a massive historic motorsport preparation sector mainly based in the UK, offers on and off-track entertainment soon to be announced in the upcoming months. Spectators can expect the usual level of unrivalled line-up of retro races, record-breaking car club anniversary celebrations and a fantastic live music line-up across the weekend.
