Silverstone Classic is fast approaching, the world’s largest Classic Motor Festival has gained quite the reputation for itself over the years and this year looks to be bigger and better than ever.
We will be at Silverstone Classic, as ever, this year proudly waving the club flag. You can find us in area Orange 19 so make sure to come down and say hi, we’ll be there all weekend with some of the best club cars on display for you to enjoy amid the weekend’s activities. Last year we had an absolute blast at Silverstone, here’s a look at what we got up to last year.
If you want to join us but need a little persuasion it’s worth mentioning that there are significant anniversaries being celebrated this year by nearly all of the car clubs.
The British Touring Car Championship will be celebrating its 60th anniversary – yes that’s 60 years of bumper busting racing at some of the UKs best tracks. It appears we are also celebrating the classic car renaissance with a series of 50th anniversaries across the board.
Our very own 02 register with be celebrating 50 years of the 2002, the Ferrari Owners Club are celebrating 50 years of the gorgeous Daytona, The Mercedes Benz Club mark 50 years of the W114/W115 while the GT40 Enthusiasts Club are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the historic Le Mans Victory. There’s plenty more being celebrated including 50 years of the Jaguar XJ as well as 70 years of the XK, and finally 20 years of the Z3M Coupe.
That’s a pretty broad spectrum of cars being celebrated, but of course we will be celebrating all that is great about the BMW Marque with a massive display of member owned cars. Jaguar UK will be on hand as always with their F-Type experience, so if you fancy going sideways very quickly in a cloud of smoke then step right up! Or if you just like the smell of burned rubber in the morning you can head on over.
New this year, and something we are particularly excited about, is the Supercar Legends area, with some of the best supercars of recent times to enjoy. We will definitely be stopping by to take it all in.
