Already firmly established as the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival, this summer’s birthday edition of The Classic will be very special indeed.
This year’s three-day, record-breaking event at Silverstone, the home of British motorsport, will not only celebrate its own 30th birthday with its biggest and best-ever line-up of retro races but will also lift spirits with a packed programme of family-entertainment.
While the off-track family fun will keep all ages endlessly amused, at the heart of The Classic is the unrivalled schedule of races featuring legendary machines from motorsport’s golden eras. And this year’s programme is the best-ever.
The eye-catching ‘Greatest Hits’ race line-up originally announced to celebrate The Classic’s landmark 30th anniversary in 2020 has all been rolled over into 2021. Now, and adding further spice, stunning grids to mark the 60th birthdays of two British design icons – the E-type Jaguar and Mini Cooper – have been added to the bill.
With many of the star-studded races attracting more than 50 entries, the action features historic cars from across the last 100 years of motorsport racing wheel-to-wheel, representing the golden ages of Formula One, Formula Two, GT, Sports and Touring Cars.
And there is more… nowhere will you see so many glittering classic cars on display. Car club members attend in their thousands showcasing the back catalogues of all the greatest marques: Alfa Romeo, Austin Healey, BMW, Corvette, Ferrari, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Lotus, MG, Morgan, Porsche, TR. The list is almost endless. Those with special milestones to celebrate will take to the famous grand prix track for impressive parades.
“When we were forced to postpone our 30th birthday party last summer, we vowed to offer visitors an even bigger and better celebration in 2021 – we have certainly achieved that,” enthused a delighted Nick Wigley, CEO of The Classic promoter Goose Live Events. “With so much included in the ticket price, visitors have always praised The Classic for offering great value for money. And if you buy before the end of March, you’ll be taking advantage of the very best available prices.”
