Silverstone Classic is the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival. This year the event runs from 26th July to 28th July. Many of the most amazing cars in the world will be featured here, with vehicles spanning a century of historic motor sport.

More car clubs than ever before have registered for the show this year, in total more than 100, so it’s going to be a spectacular weekend for all motoring enthusiasts.

All day entertainment

The show kicks off at 6:15am with a hot air balloon display and the action keeps going from then on in. You have the thrill of watching more than 20 races and demonstrations, there are some great driving activities such as the Range Rover 4×4 passenger ride experience and special driving events for youngsters aged 10-16. There’s plenty of entertainment for the whole family, a fun fair and some great live music acts. The stunt shows are also not to be missed.

Some truly special events

This year marks the 100th anniversary of Bentley so there will be some special Bentley events going on at the show, and the HTCC will not be skipping a year as is usual, so you’ll also get to enjoy the Historic Touring Car Challengers celebrating 50 years of the iconic Ford Capri.

Star cars and more besides

There’s a 5.14km fun run in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK and the fun goes on into the night with glowing hot air balloon displays and constant live music. As always, there’s going to be a fantastic atmosphere and your ticket for the show includes all the music events too!
