The first details of the 2012 Silverstone Classic (July 20-22) have been unveiled, with grids set to include Grand Prix Masters and the Historic Grand Prix Car Association along with Group C as organisers aim to top the previous event’s 1100 entries.
Back by popular demand after turning in sensational races last time will be Formula Junior and the U2TC touring car category (left), and both are expected to deliver capacity 58-car grids.
To cope with the scale of the event, the entire Silverstone site will again be used, including both paddocks. Planned improvements include better access as well as a significant increase in the number of buses transporting visitors around the venue. Live music will again be a key element of the weekend and topping the bill will be Adam Ant and Mike and the Mechanics. Fans can now take advantage of early-bird tickets, offering significant savings until March 31 2012.
