Summer at Silverstone
FIRMLY established as the World's biggest classic motor racing festival, this summer's three-day Silverstone Classic will build further upon the huge success of last summer's record-breaking event, which attracted a massive crowd of more than 80,000.
The on-track entertainment, from July 20 to 22, will showcase the full spectrum of historic motor sport with huge grids featuring an amazing array of Grand Prix, GT, Le Mans, single-seaters, sports and touring cars spanning more than seven decades of epic circuit racing history.
The unrivalled race programme will be enhanced by an even greater variety of family entertainment than ever before. More than 120 car clubs will be displaying in excess of 7,000 classic road cars many marking significant milestones in their marque's respective ancestry.
With more and more Silverstone Classic visitors staying on site at Silverstone to savour the massive on and off track entertainment package – and also take full advantage of discounted three-day and weekend tickets – an even more comprehensive choice of "glamping" and camping options are now available for 2012.

"Our special multi-day tickets and hugely popular 'access all areas' policy offers exceptional value for money," says Nick Wigley, Silverstone Classic Event Director. "Tickets not only provide free access to car parking, grandstand seats, air displays, fun fair and both Silverstone paddocks allowing festival goers to rub shoulders with drivers and see the amazing collection of classic competition cars up close, but they also include admission to all the live music concerts in the evenings."
To cater for the Silverstone Classic's spiralling appeal and popularity, a wide range of new and improved logistics and infrastructure have also been implemented in advance of this summer's festival. These include better access to the venue as well as a significant increase in the number of buses transporting show-goers around the various attractions and between the two race paddocks.
Boasting more than 1,100 entries, the 2011 Silverstone Classic was believed to be the biggest race meeting ever staged in international motor sport history. To house such an unprecedented number of the world's finest historic racing cars, Silverstone's new wing, national pit and paddock complexes were fully utilised. With an even greater number of entries predicted this summer, the full Silverstone facility again will be in operation come the 2012 Silverstone Classic.
