The 2010 Silverstone Classic (23-25 July) will be the best yet, with more racing, more classic cars, more live music.
Proudly carrying the tag of ‘the world’s biggest classic racing festival’, the Silverstone Classic is much more than a glorious celebration of motor racing heritage. It is a complete event dedicated to providing a fabulous day or weekend out for everyone.
On-track is a stellar line-up of races and this will be proper classic racing, as 1000 hard-charging racers do battle in 800 cars spanning seven decades of motor racing heritage. In total, 23 races will cover Grand Prix cars, sports, GT, saloon and single-seater racing cars from 1930 to the 1990s. Including celebrity races.
Live music will again be a big feature of the Silverstone Classic in 2010, with major concerts on the evenings of both Friday (23 July) and Saturday (24 July). Entry to both concerts will be included within the circuit admission charge.
On Friday night, Silverstone will rock to the sounds of two classic British bands from the 1960s and 1970s, when The Yardbirds and Dr Feelgood take to the stage to thrill the thousands of visitors to the opening day of the Silverstone Classic.
Then, on Saturday evening, the story comes bang up to date with a show including Stars from the X Factor, with Jedward, Danyl Johnson and Ruth Lorenzo, and The Rick Parfitt Jnr. Rock Band. Rick junior has rocking in his genes, as he is the son of legendary Status Quo member Rick senior.
Before the live concert starts on Saturday evening, there will be an important auction of classic cars and memorabilia, organised by Bonhams. Bonhams Motoring Department is the largest auction house to hold scheduled auction sales of classic and vintage cars and memorabilia, so a spectacular line-up of road and race cars is assured.
“The Silverstone Classic is the biggest and best classic racing festival in the World as well as Europe’s most entertaining car-themed event,” said event director Nick Wigley. “Flat out fun for all the family is core to the attraction of the Silverstone Classic.”
