Not the usual historic FIA GT suspects, but an exciting, eclectic grid of early 1960s racers will battle it out

Nothing wrong with Santana, I just think the other lot might be a bit out of place. Also I wonder if Lewis would be man enough to get in a 70's F1 car and race that.

I really don't know what to do, the Sunday was wicked last year, but the autograph session was cancelled, so may go on the Fri or the sat...

PCD or Santana, or just the racing/qualifying

It depends m8, a lot of older drivers just attend FOS - you're list was quite impressive. If you see most of the drivers you wanna see are at FOS, This classic thing may not be needed.

Exactly m8, some of the older ones are very pleasant and very approachable, they realise that people like us have put them there in the first place. Well not us but our Great Grandfathers lol!

Very Happy Thanks Midge

More news on the pre '63 Sports Car Race

Quote :
Silverstone Classic organizers announced that an exciting and
eclectic grid of early 1960s racers will battle it out on track at the
classic car race in July.
Participation is limited by invitation only to GT cars built and
homologated before January 1st, 1963, from AC Cobras to Short Wheel
Base Ferraris and Aston Martin Zagatos, all models which were built to
be driven on the road and raced on the track.
Observance to period homologation rules will be strict, as the grid
welcomes pre-’63 models which were competitive in their time but whose
performance may not be suitable for more ‘modern’ historic racing.
“We are attracting owners of rarely seen cars,” says racer Ben
Cussons, “and have convinced them to get their toys out of the cupboard
to race here at the Silverstone Classic. The event gives owners an
opportunity to race their cars within a grid that more closely reflects
the specification of the original racing models.”
Among the entries accepted so far are two of the rarest and most
famous Aston Martins: the lightweight chassis ex-Equipe Endeavour
DB4GT, which won its first race at Goodwood with Stirling Moss at the
wheel in 1960, and a Project DP212 which raced at Le Mans in 1962.
There will also be a Triumph TR3, winner of an Alpine Rally cup and
placed second in the 1957 Sebring 12-hour race, thus sporting both
period race and rally history, a very rare feat in ex-works cars.
Ken Prichard Jones, director of Racing at Silverstone Ltd, confirms
the importance of a rigorous grid selection process. “The Silverstone
Classic,” he says, “is all about encouraging and nurturing the spirit
of good old historic racing. After all, it is only by enjoying and
understanding the past that we can invest in the future and appreciate
innovation and technology.”

22 races have attracted 900 drivers and 700 cars

The races for the weekend are all run on the historic GP circuit, which
is even faster than the current layout (already one of the fastest
Formula One circuits in the world).
