Another classic record breaker!

This weekend's (July 20-22) Silverstone Classic powered by the AA will be the most entertaining and action-packed yet. Staged on the world famous Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit just two weeks after the Santander Formula 1 British GP, the event is already
established as the world's biggest classic motor racing festival – and 2012's edition is all set to break yet more records.

Once again both Silverstone's National and new International Wing pits and paddock complexes will be maximised to house hundreds of the world’s finest historic racing cars which will be competing in a packed schedule of 24 races on the full GP track.

With more than 1,000 entries the non-stop on-track entertainment showcases the full spectrum of motor sport history with huge grids featuring a mouth-watering array of Grand Prix, GT, Le Mans, single-seater, sports and touring cars spanning more than seven decades of epic circuit racing history.

Adding to the spectacle more than 7,000 classic cars will be displayed during the weekend on the Silverstone infield with many hallowed marques celebrating important milestones in their evocative histories. Notably the busy Sunday schedule includes a world record parade of 70 Ferrari F40s to mark the stunning supercar's 25th birthday.

"The Silverstone Classic powered by the AA just gets bigger and better every year with more and more attractions to entertain those of all generations," confirmed Nick Wigley, Event Director. "Once again the event has attracted a stunning entry with many of the race grids heavily oversubscribed. This year's car club displays are going to be very special, too, with so many significant motoring anniversaries being celebrated at Silverstone. Moreover our exciting new partnership with the AA has extended the festival’s massive appeal still further by offering a great range of interactive driving experiences for those of all ages. Indeed, with so much to see and do it's no surprise that our advanced ticket sales are running at unprecedented levels and we are looking forward to welcoming a record crowd."
