Friday, 24 July 2009 - Sunday, 26 July 2009
The Silverstone Classic weekend is from the 24th to the 26th July 2009 and represents one of the larger race weekends for the Silverstone circuit. It features a relaxed mix of classic racing cars, music and displays of vehicles and the occasional aircraft. This year there are 11 races on the Saturday and another 11 on the Sunday, with practice sessions on the Friday. Saturday evening also features a concert by Carlos Santana.
Featured races are for cars in the following categories :-
pre war sports cars, pre 1956 sports cars, Group C and Historic sports cars, pre 1966 Grand Prix (F1) and 1966 to 1978 Grand Prix cars, together with 2 classes of touring car.
(1978 features the ground effects cars of Lotus).
Many car clubs will have displays and members parking areas making a stroll around the infield parking area a worthwhile exercise. Naturally PCGB will have a splendid display of classic vehicles on show, as will the Ferrari, Bugatti and Lamborghini owners clubs.
The race cars can also be inspected in the pits which are generally open for the weekend.
Although there are no races on the Friday inspecting the various exhibits will take up most of that day.
Thanks to the efforts of our club president PCI members can obtain a club discount when ordering tickets. For further information please contact Harvey Gerndt at firstname.lastname@example.org. or visit the Silverstone website at www.Sliverstone.co.uk.
