Silverstone Classics is Already Breaking Records for 2015

This year’s special Silver Anniversary running of the Silverstone Classic (24-26 July) is already breaking records. For the first time in the huge meeting’s 25-year history, more than 100 classic car clubs will add to the high-octane atmosphere with huge displays creating a magical infield motor museum at the Home of British Motorsport.

Last year’s three-day extravaganza raised the bar by attracting an unprecedented 93 clubs, displaying in excess of 10,000 cherished classic cars right at the heart of the award-winning event. Those records have already been topped in 2015 with – to date – 110 clubs signing up. Moreover, as part of this summer’s birthday bash, bike clubs are also included.

“These sparkling displays are a very important and integral part of our celebration of classic car culture and – like the event – with every year they grow and grow,” enthused Nick Wigley, Event Director. “The record number already registered shows the clubs are coming out in force this summer, once again providing everyone attending the Silverstone Classic with a wonderful spectacle.”

While the classic car event will mark its own 25th anniversary in terrific style, as tradition dictates many of the car clubs will be paying homage to their own landmarks with eye-catching track parades on Friday and Saturday.

Motoring milestones being honoured on the full Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit this year include 60 years of both the TVR Car Club and Aston Martin DB6, 50 years of the Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, 40 years of the Jaguar XJS and Triumph TR7, 30 years of the Sinclair C5 and Toyota MR2 as well as 25 years of two iconic Japanese sportscars: the ground-breaking Honda NSX mid-engined supercar and the equally evocative Mazda MX-5, which first reached the UK in 1990.
