30 July - 1 August 2021

The Classic, Silverstone  – the biggest of them all. 


The Classic is firmly established as one of the world’s biggest historic motor racing festivals, and Motor Racing Legends will be taking an incredible five grids to the 2021 showpiece event. All of our activities will be based in the National Paddock so if you are racing with us you can enjoy the ‘clubby race meeting feel’ of this area amidst the incredible buzz of this fantastic festival. 

The Royal Automobile Club Woodcote Trophy and Stirling Moss Trophy grids come together for a stellar ‘50s Sports Car race – a highlight of the year for these cars. 

The Pre ’63 GT grid will be racing for the prestigious Royal Automobile Club Historic Tourist Trophy – one of the ‘glitterati’ races of the weekend, where early ‘60s GT cars of the highest calibre will be hustling for to have their names engraved on the magnificent trophy.

The opportunity to race on the full Grand Prix circuit just a few weeks after Formula One is a rare one for pre-War competitors, so this forty minute, two-driver race is one not to be missed.  The action will be hot at the front of the grid, but such is the variety of the pre-War grid that drivers of more modest machinery will also enjoy close competition thanks to the mixture of sizes, speeds and models throughout this mouth-watering grid. 

There is no finer sight than a grid of Motor Racing Legends Historic Touring Cars at full chat on Silverstone Grand Prix circuit.  Four eras of Touring Car history will be celebrated from the early ‘60s to the late ‘80s.  The flurry of Ford RS Cosworth’s and BMW M3’s battling it out at the front will recreate modern history; and the nostalgia will continue with the Rover SD1s, Alfa Romeo GTV6 and Rover Metro Turbo in the Historic Touring Car Challenge.  In the Tony Dron Trophy Ford Capris, Triumph Dolomites and Chevrolet Camaros will re-enact the Group 1 and ‘1 and a half’ battles of the 1970s. Touring Cars of the early and late 1960s will be celebrated in the hustle bustle of the U2TC and Sixties Touring car Challenge grids packed with Lotus Cortina’s, Alfa Romeo GTAs, Mini Coopers and BMW 1800 and later 2002s. 

A legend of the track was born in 1961 with the arrival of the Jaguar E-Type which went onto dominate motor racing in the first half of the 1960s.  2021 hails a significant milestone for the machine as it will be its 60th anniversary and a major celebration will be organised by Motor Racing Legends and The Classic with full-on ‘60th Anniversary E-Type Challenge’ The all Jaguar E-Type race is a stand-alone showcase and demand for grid slots is sure to be high.
