We’ve just returned home from a weekend at Silverstone Classic filled with epic race cars, automotive pornography at every turn and an experience that would be hard to beat!
A few members have been in previous years as visitors and urged us to get a stand this year. It’s safe to say they made a fantastic decision. It’s not cheap at about £100, but when you consider that gets you 2 days, 2 people and the Calibre of cars of display and things to do it’s actually quite a bargain.
The main pro is the level of access you have. The pits are open, the race cars are accessible and the cars are as raw as you’ll see them on race day. As you’ll see from the photos you can get as close as you want and we didn’t have any grumbles or moans all weekend from the drivers. And I took over a 1000 photos! From Le Mans cars, touring cars and F1 cars of old, to single seats and race bikes. Literally anything race cars was there.
On top of the race cars, there are owners clubs attending such as the Lamborghini owners, mclaren owners, Porsche club GBand the usual RS Ford suspects.
There was also entertainment after 5pm, UB40 were on stage Saturday night whilst we were there. As well as a hot air balloon display and funfair rides.
This is a show we need to attend again next year for sure, and I’m sure now others see the cars on display it will be an easy show to fill a stand for!
Below are a selection of photos, but check our Facebook page for the full selection of pictures from the weekend.
Until next year! <3
