One of the calendar's premier classic car events hopefully again this year. Now renamed The Classic it offers something for everyone. With our exclusive club package, it is an absolute bargain. Come and join us, whether for one day or all weekend.

What is it?

Silverstone Classic is one of the top racing events on the classic calendar. From pre-war GP cars to 90's Le Mans Racers, there will be something amazing on track all the time. Racing late into the evening each day, there is always something spectacular going on.

Off the track, there is a huge traders village, a free fair, displays by manufacturers, driving experiences... the list goes on.

In the evening on the live stage there will be live music. Big acts too. All in the price of the ticket.

How?

Book the ticket type you want here:

https://www.silverstoneclassic.com/tickets


Please use the club booking code 2020CCD066 as the promotion code at the checkout. This will not only book your infield space but also give you the discount.

Each ticket entitles you, your car and a passenger to come. A full weekend ticket is c£100 depending upon when you book so it is cheap per person.

What do we do?

Arrive and park. You'll be sent tickets and display passes a few weeks before the event. Marshals will guide you to the stand. Park, have a natter, go and enjoy yourself.

Do I have to stay with the car all the time?

No. You go off and enjoy the show. Ed will try to organise a meet up lunch for all attendees on each day.


Don't say you haven't been given enough notice !

As a club member a Silverstone ticket will get you and one passenger into the event for the days you pay for. The passenger ticket isn’t named so you could bring a different person each day with you if you wanted.

You would park infield of the circuit so your car will be on the club’s stand with other 924s from the club. Once parked you’re welcome come and go as you like. Most of us gather back to have eat together and often go off in groups to enjoy the many things happening.

On all three days there will be circuit action. Friday is qualifying so mainly use that to visit the other attractions.

Saturday and Sunday are race days. Then races start about 10am and go on until early evening. Saturday night there is a dusk endurance race where you’ll see Le Mans racers or Group C cars battling it out in the dark. Brakes glowing, lights ablaze and turbos spilling exhaust flames.

The racing covers a range of different eras. From cars from 1911 through to Le Mans prototypes from the early 2000s. Most of the grandstands are open and you can enter them and sit freely included in the price of the ticket. That includes on the start finish straight overlooking the pits. For the British GP a seated ticket there is over £800!

On display will be car clubs from across the world in field, like us. You could spend a day just walking around the event as a massive car show. There are usually over 10,000 classics on display.

Your ticket gives you complete access to the paddock area and you’ll be inches away from iconic racers worth millions. Famous owners and drivers will walk amongst you and are usually pretty chatty.

In the evening on Saturday there is live music on the main stage from pop and rock bands from the past.

All weekend there is a free funfair running in the village area along with food and drinks as you need. You can bring your own food though and leave it in the car- the advantage of having the car nearby.

Throughout the weekend there will be other live events happening. Mike Brewer, air displays, drag racing, live rally stages.

It is incredibly well set out.


You can book for individual days but the best value is to book for the weekend. You, your car and a passenger can get the weekend pass for £110 at the moment with the club’s discount.

The EarlyBird ticket offer ends on the 31st March, after that the 3 day pass will be going up by £20.

If you intend going it's well worth getting your tickets booked now - don't forget to use the club booking code! ( 2020CCD066 )

The ticket is fully refundable if the event doesn't go ahead.

I'm all booked for the weekend too.

Silverstone have changed their booking system and it is a LOT easier than previous years. Simply select the number of days and then put in your details. You get two reminders about the promo code too.

I'm so looking forward to this. It's one of my favourite ones. Hope to see you there.

Don't forget the biggest discounts run out on 31st March. Get it booked!

Hi all,

Very tempted to book this, but what happens in the event that my 924 isn't 'up to' the journey when the day comes?

I'm a little nervous! :roll:
