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 is proud to be taking six of our race series to this event, across four races. As tradition dictates, our grids will be based in the ‘Heritage Paddock’, along with the Motor Racing Legends Hospitality – an oasis of calm amidst the incredible buzz of this world-class event.

One of the absolute highlights of last year’s event, and a perennial entertainer, is the combined Royal Automobile Club Woodcote Trophy and Stirling Moss Trophy grid – a stellar race for ‘50s Sports Cars.

Another of the ‘glitterati’ races of the weekend is the Pre ’63 GT grid for the prestigious Royal Automobile Club Historic Tourist Trophy – 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 is a rare one for pre-War competitors, so this forty-minute, two-driver race for Pre-War Sports Cars – for the ‘BRDC 500’ trophy – is one not to be missed. This grid always delivers an exceptional variety of cars and some superb racing.

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, Nissan Skylines 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 ‘1½ ’ 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.
