An update from our CEO: Next steps, 2021 dates and celebrating some of our favourite Classic moments…
I can’t tell you how sad it made me to bring you news of our decision to cancel the Classic last month. For the last 12 years it has been my life’s focus to build the Classic into the most amazing family friendly classic racing festival, the biggest – and many people think the best – in the world.
We hope that you’ll be able to join us for the 2021 event instead when we’ll bring you our postponed 30th anniversary party as well as a series of other deferred celebrations… plus some brand new ones; it’ll be an incredible event for us to enjoy together… and we’re looking at the ways in which we also use the event to pay a fitting tribute to the inspiring key workers who are supporting us all through this very difficult period, too. More on that soon.
Looking ahead to our provisional dates for 2021, the dates for your diary are: 30 July – 1 August. As usual, these will remain provisional until the dates for the British Grand Prix are ratified by the FIA (usually at the start of December) but we hope that this helps with planning for now.
Anyone who has a ticket has been given the option to roll their tickets over to the 2021 event or request a full refund. All ticket holders have been contacted with full details of their options. If you bought a ticket for the 2020 event and have not heard from us, please check your junk folder for an email from us dated 19.06.2020. If there’s nothing there, please contact us here or alternatively check out our FAQs page.
In the meantime, if you’re missing your motorsport fix, don’t forget that you can keep in touch via our social media channels where we’ll be providing some escapism and entertainment with some epic moments from past Classic events (follow the links at the top of each page of our website) plus, if you’re signed-up to receive our news, we’ll provide you with some highlights of our favourite moments via email (you can register here, if you’re not already) – we’d love to hear from you with details of what yours have been, too.
Thank you to all of you who took the time to write us personal messages or comment so positively on our social media channels when we had to make the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event at the end of May. We feel incredibly lucky that the Classic has such strong and loyal support and we really appreciate your understanding at such a difficult time. We look forward to welcoming you for next year’s Silverstone Classic on Friday 30th July through to Sunday August 1st 2021. Until then, stay safe.
CEO of Silverstone Classic organiser, Goose Live Events
