Silverstone to Host Bentley Drivers Club Race Day

Bentley Drivers Club race day

The Bentley Drivers Club traditional annual Silverstone Race Day will take place on Saturday 1st August, with this year’s meeting being the Club’s 66th consecutive event at the famous Northamptonshire circuit.

Known for its friendly and informal atmosphere, ‘Bentley Silverstone’ has become a celebration of classic car Club racing at its best, where all makes and models compete against each other in a fiercely amicable way.

On-track action for 2015 includes a Bentley Scratch race for pre-1966 cars, the pre-War Team Challenge and the Bentley Handicap race. Other marques will compete in the Aero Morgan Challenge Series, the MG ‘T’ Register, AC & Morgan Race and the Bic Healey Trophy & AC Team Challenge. FISCAR will be keeping the spirit of Fifties sports car racing alive with a 30-minute pit stop race for one or two drivers, and two Allcomers races (Fast and Slow) and an Allcomers Scratch race including post-1966 Bentleys complete the programme.

It’s not just all the on-track on track action that makes BDC Silverstone a ‘must-do’ event for any Bentley enthusiast. Hundreds of non-racing classic and modern Bentleys will also be on display and participating in the Club parade. This year the parade will mark special Bentley anniversaries for the S1, 60 years and Azure 20 years, and Continental GTs, fresh from their recent Continental Breakfast, will further swell the numbers.

Regulations and entry forms for the nine grids are now available from the Bentley Drivers Club website or via Martin Greenslade, BDC Competitions Secretary, on 01295 738886. Closing date for race entries is 15th July.
