Silver Parade to Hit the Track at Silverstone Classics

Silver Parade to Hit the Track at Silverstone Classics

Whether it’s rocking to Status Quo or revelling in the widest ever spectrum of motor sport history, this summer’s Silverstone Classic (24-26 July) will mark its 25th anniversary in glittering style.

The biggest celebration, though, will be the special Silver Jubilee parade – one of the many highlights on ‘Super Sunday’, which will see hundreds of silver cars taking to the famous Silverstone Grand Prix track.

The spectacular parade is open to everyone with a silver car – old or new – and has already attracted an amazing array ranging from a 1934 Austin Seven Special to the latest creations from legendary marques such as Land Rover and Aston Martin.

In-between, the silvery cavalcade will feature a magical mix putting the spotlight on at least nine decades of automotive history. As you’d expect at an event that showcases close to 10,000 privately-owned classic cars, the parade includes numerous iconic models from esteemed brands such as Alfa Romeo, BMW, Caterham, Ginetta, Jaguar, Lotus, Marcos, Mercedes, MG, Porsche and TVR.

“Right from the very first event in 1990, the Classic has always set out to commemorate important motoring anniversaries with track parades but this is something a little bit different,” explained event director Nick Wigley. “For once it’s not limited to those lucky enough to own an E-type, 911 or F40 – it’s open to all those millions of motorists who simply have a silver car. We want as many people as possible to participate in our 25-year celebrations and this is the perfect way to allow lots more to join the party.”
