    Silverstone Classic 2020 - 31st July to 2nd August 2020 ** CANCELLED **

    *** THIS EVENT IS NOW CANCELLED ***

    Hi all,

    Welcome to the official thread for the 2020 Silverstone Classic!

    SC20Logo.jpg

    Intro
    Whether you've been before or if it's your first time thinking about attending, the Silverstone Classic really is the No. 1 classic and historic car event of the year. Not only do you get over 10,000 cars on display, but there's also racing from dawn until dusk from Friday until Sunday. There's so much to do that it can be overwhelming, but it's got something for everyone.

    Once you've purchased your ticket, pretty much everything inside the circuit is included. This covers a free fair ground, open access to lots of stands that at the F1 would cost you over 400 for a weekend ticket. You also have full access to all of the pits and can get as close as you dare to the cars. There's nothing like being in the pits when dozens of historic F1 cars are exiting onto track; truly exhilarating! There are also off road experiences, stunt driving demos, drag racing demos and in years gone by there have been reverse steering Citroen 2CV challenges as well as many other bits of entertainment off track.

    Once it gets to the evening, you're treated to a great line-up of free music on Friday and Saturday night including acts like Status Quo, Suzi Quattro, Adam Ant, Bonnie Tyler, Reef, The Stranglers, UB40 and more!

    On top of all of this, you'll get to display your MR2 to the public and will get to chat to likeminded fans of the MR2 throughout the weekend.

    MR2 Mk1 Club Car Display
    In recent years, we've had as many as 33 cars on display on our stand and it's a great way to show off the marque. Whether you're new to the club, or a long-standing member, please come along to show off your pride and joy. It doesn't have to be in concourse condition, and everyone will be interested to see what Mk1 you bring.

    Tickets
    *** THIS EVENT IS NOW CANCELLED ***

    Racing
    The line-up for the 2020 Silverstone Classic will feature the most exciting racing action from one of the best spreads of motorsport to date. With over 20 races and over 1000 entries, the racing action will be non-stop all weekend.

    The grids for this year have been confirmed as below:

    • FIA Masters Historic Formula One
    • World Championship Celebration Trophy for Historic Grand Prix Cars
    • HSCC Historic Formula Two
    • Formula Junior
    • RAC Tourist Trophy for Pre 1963 GT Cars

    Friday Night Music
    • Pearl Jamm
    • Britpop Reunion
    • The Brand New Heavies

    Apologies for the delay in getting this thread up, but I'm going to be available to make sure everyone that wants to get tickets in by the end of March at the cheaper price can do so.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I'll see who signs up, and hopefully we can sort it between the attendees. I'll only really need someone to meet and greet on the stand in the mornings, someone to take and put up the gazebo (depending on numbers) and just be a contact for any first time attendees.

    Cool, are all of your details the same as last year?

    Ok mate. I'm not the best at that kind of thing, so I'll let someone else take the reins. I'm happy to help out though.

    Went a couple of years ago. Had a great couple of days. Groups C racers out on the track and loads of clubs and stands.
    Highlight was watching the Lamborghini owners club jostling to get out of single lane car park and on to the track, no egos involved at all. http://www.0x07bell.net/SilverstoneClassic/index.html
    Maybe on hold but will probably make effort to get there.
    In the south west we have the powderham show but that is also on hold.

    No problem Dan.

    Here's the current update from Silverstone as of Friday - https://www.silverstoneclassic.com/n...ovid-19-update

    I'd hope it still goes ahead, but I'm not sure I'm happy to take people's money for tickets in-case it gets cancelled/re-arranged.

    I will be contacting Silverstone to suggest that they extend the cheaper ticket prices all the way through to the end of May, instead of increasing them.

    Take care people!

    Yes, it's a phenomenal event isn't it? We'll just have to monitor how the next few weeks pan out.

    Cool photos! I've got so many happy memories from the event over the years.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    If I'd not already lost some money on my other trip, I'd have paid up for for this. Thanks for understanding.

    If situations improve I'll go ahead. The extension on the cheap tickets is the same thought I had.
