CURTAIN RAISES ON ANOTHER RECORD-BREAKING SILVERSTONE CLASSIC
“The Classic is one of my favourite weekends of the year – it’s such a super festival to enjoy as a spectator. As a driver, it delivers on all fronts with the massive crowds,” said the reigning BTCC champ. “Having just driven the M3, it’s mint! You are driving around feeling like a hero; it’s so nicely balanced and flies out of the corners – I can’t stop grinning!”
While most eyes were focused on the track, final preparations have also been completed on the huge in-field areas in readiness for the arrival of more than 10,000 stunning classic cars and 100,000 visitors over the three-day festival.
“We are all ready for what promises to be the biggest and best Silverstone Classic to date,” enthused Nick Wigley, Silverstone Classic CEO. “The racing is the heartbeat of such an incredible family festival jam-packed with entertainment for all ages so it’s no surprise that we have sold a record number of full weekend tickets – one day really is never enough!”
All tickets include admission to the concerts as well as both racing paddocks, open trackside grandstands and the vast majority of the family entertainment on offer for all ages. Tickets, though, must be purchased in advance and only remain on sale until midnight tonight. Gates open on Friday at 7.30am
