There are just a few days left for show-goers to take advantage of the discounted Early Bird tickets for this summer’s ‘Rocking and Racing’ Silverstone Classic (28th-30th of July).
Building on the huge success of recent retro extravaganzas at the home of British motor sport, pre-sales for the 2017 event are already running at record highs – ticket buyers now have until the end of March to save up to 18 per cent on a wide range of day and weekend tickets, which must be purchased in advance.
Boasting an array of entertainment for all ages, the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival now attracts more than 100,000 visitors over three action-packed days – and this year’s Classic is revving up to be another massive family affair.
Once again, the on-track racing features all of the world’s premier historic championships. These span all of motor sport’s golden eras including packed grids of Formula 1, GT, touring and sportscars as well as a special celebrity showdown starring high-profile personalities from sport and showbiz. No fewer than five Olympic gold medallists have already been confirmed – Jason Kenny, Mark Hunter, Greg Searle, Jonny Searle and Amy Williams – and they will line-up in a field of nostalgic Austin A35s.
Providing excellent value, all tickets offer free access to both of Silverstone’s busy paddocks plus trackside grandstands and much of the far-reaching family entertainment which includes air displays, a vintage funfair, shopping village, car club displays, dynamic demonstrations and interactive driving activities.
Also included in the ticket price is access to live music concerts on both Friday and Saturday evenings. This year these are topped by The Bootleg Beatles, and Tony Hadley, formerly of Spandau Ballet fame.
