Its summertime, the sun is shining (well sort of) and were packing out camera kit and loading up the cars to head down to Silverstone for the weekend. One of the world`s largest classic motorsport events, the Silverstone Classic takes place this weekend, bringing together a unique gathering of road and racing cars to the Home of British Motor Racing. Over 50,000 spectators are expected over the three days as some of the biggest names in motorsport will be either present or remembered in more than 21 races on the Grand Prix circuit. We will be updating the site throughout the weekend so keep checking back.

The Silvertsone Classic will feature eight decades of motor racing entertainment including 700 cars previously driven by some of the worlds greatest drivers. But there will be something for everyone at this year’s Silverstone Classic. It’s not just track activity on offer, making the event a truly family affair.

As well as the open paddock offering the chance to see race cars up close and talk to some of the hundreds of drivers present, there is also the chance to watch some superb on-track and air displays. These include a flypast by a Spitfire and Mustang as well as the Red Devils Freefall Parachute Team, Hunter Jet Fighter and a Spitfire from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
