Tickets for the eagerly-anticipated 2014 Silverstone Classic (25-27 July) have gone on sale offering significant ‘early bird’ discounts for those planning ahead or, perhaps, seeking a special Christmas present.
Back in July, the 2013 Silverstone Classic lived up to – and beyond – its undisputed title as the World’s Biggest Classic Motor Racing Festival.
The massive event boasted a new record entry, with no fewer than 1113 amazing racing cars spanning eight decades of glorious motor sport history lining up for 24 memorable showdowns. The grids also featured a growing number of star drivers from past and present generations, including FIA World Touring Champions Andy Priaulx and Rob Huff, Le Mans winner Jackie Oliver, touring car aces Tim Harvey and Steve Soper and racer/TV presenter Tiff Needell.
Away from the racing the Classic set even more records. To add to the show, Silverstone was festooned with more than 9000 classic cars on display, while an unprecedented parade of 1208 Porsche 911s took to the track to celebrate the iconic sportscar’s 50th anniversary – far surpassing the original target of 911 models.
There was a record Silverstone Classic crowd, too, with in excess of 90,000 savouring the action over the three days. Since then, more than a million more TV viewers also have watched highlights on ITV4.
While the bar was raised to new heights in 2013, next summer’s extravaganza will be even more ambitious with many exciting announcements planned for the coming months.
Once again, tickets will only be available in advance and the Classic is sticking to its popular ‘access all areas’ policy. Offering great value every tickets grants admission to free parking, all the racing pits and paddocks, trackside grandstands, fun fair rides, air displays and live music concerts on Friday and Saturday evening.
