We love to celebrate a milestone

Each year the Silverstone Classic celebrates landmark anniversaries for marques, models, championship wins, constructors, and historic motorsport moments - there's nothing more we enjoy than a birthday celebration!

Details of the anniversaries being celebrated in 2019 are yet to be confirmed, but for now, we thought you might like to be reminded of some of the milestones we've celebrated over previous Classics. 

Jaguar E-Type

Back in 2011, we enjoyed a record-breaking year celebrating 50 years of the Jaguar E-Type with a Guinness World Record to boot.

Ferrari F40

In 2012, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Ferrari F40 with an epic track parade with 60 cars taking part!

Watch the parade here.

Aston Martin

In 2013, Aston Martin celebrated its centenary with us.

Aston Martins from across the ages took to the track for a celebratory parade in honour of this epic milestone.

James Hunt

In 2016 we celebrated the headline-grabbing career of the charismatic James Hunt, 40 years on from his FIA Formula One World Championship win in 1976

In 2016 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the spectacular Can-Am series by hosting the final two races of the Can-Am 50 Interserie Challenge.

See highlights footage of the racing  here.


In 2017 we worked with the McLaren Owners Group to put on another record-breaking display winning a Guinness World Record for the largest parade of McLaren cars. This was organised to mark what would have been company founder, Bruce McLaren’s, 80th birthday.


In 2017 we celebrated 25 years since Nigel Mansell's championship win with Williams; itself celebrating its 40th anniversary. The iconic Williams FW14B returned to the track for high speed demos.

These celebrations were featured on our highlights film in 2017 which you can watch here.


At the 2018 event we celebrated 60 glorious years of the British Touring Car Championship with a special display and parade of championship cars through the years.

The ITV4 highlights programme which aired after the event showcases these celebrations. You can watch the full programme here.

If you'd like to discuss a particular celebration with us for 2019, please get in touch; we'd love to hear from you.
