The 2017 Silverstone Classic takes place on the weekend of 28th - 30th July 2017.
This reflects a change to the provisional dates previously communicated (21-23 July). This is due to the fact that on 30 November 2016, the FIA ratified and released the FIA Formula 1 calendar for 2017 which included a surprise change to the British Grand Prix date, now confirmed as being the weekend of the 16th July - a week later than their provisional dates. Due to massive operational complexities it is impossible to hold the two largest annual events at Silverstone on consecutive weekends and so the confirmed date for the Silverstone Classic in 2017 is the weekend of the 28/29/30 July (a week later than our provisional dates).
For anyone that has bought their tickets already, these will obviously be valid for the revised dates and we look forward to seeing everyone a week later than originally planned. Anyone who bought tickets between the 5th November and 1st December 2016 and is now unable to attend the 2017 event due to the date change has until the 28th February to request a full refund on their tickets. Details have been sent to all ticket purchasers to let them know how to do this.
We’re so very sorry to have had to to make this change but unfortunately it’s due to factors outside of our control.
Tickets to the event are available in advance until 5pm the Thursday before our festival weekend (Thursday 27th July in 2017).
Bookings for Car Club Packages are only available until midnight on the 31st May – this is due to the complex logistics of accommodating over 100 car clubs over the weekend of the event.
