To celebrate the 45th anniversary of the first RAC British Grand Prix at the circuit, Silverstone has organised several special promotions for the BRDC Finals meeting on October 2/3, highlights of which include the penultimate round of the British Formula Three Championship and the concluding rounds of the National Sports GT, Group N, Rover GTI, Mini Miglia, Mini Seven and Club Metro championships. Also scheduled are Pre ’85 Formula Ford 1600 and Supersports Vauxhall (Clubmans) events.
Practice is on Saturday, as is the Formula Ford race. Racing starts at noon on Sunday, following a pits walkabout from 10.30.
For Motor Sport readers, the admission charge (£4 Saturday, £10 Sunday) will be waived if you arrive with a copy of the November 1948 edition of the magazine, the cover of which depicts Luigi Villoresi piloting his Maserati to victory in the RAC British GP on October 2 that year. .
