Take to the road with the RetroRun

The Silverstone Classic RetroRun is a road run for classic cars (pre-1999 or those of special interest) that takes place as an integrated part of the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival, the Silverstone Classic. The 2019 RetroRun started on the Saturday morning of the Silverstone Classic close by at the magnificent Stowe House, and participants took part in a 100-mile route, carefully selected to provide a fantastic driving experience. They took in special places of interest, including the newly-opened Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works. Here entrants gained exclusive access to rare Lightweight E type and XKSS cars, the XJ220 servicing area, E type and Range Rover Reborn, as well as the complete Classic Collection. The run ended in the very heart of the Silverstone Classic event at the exclusive, dedicated RetroRun area inside the Circuit*.

The 2019 RetroRun package included:

  • Two adult three-day event tickets for the Silverstone Classic.
  • An ‘infield’ vehicle pass giving special access to a display area with other RetroRunners within the heart of the event for all three days.
  • A welcoming tea or coffee on arrival at Stowe House.
  • Visit to Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works -  Jaguar Land Rover's commitment to the future of classic cars is epitomised by their brand-new purpose-built Classic facility - the largest of its kind in the world.
