1948 and all that

The 60th anniversary of Silverstone’s first race meeting, the 1948 British Grand Prix, will be the key celebration at the 2008 Silverstone Classic, to be held from July 25-27, 2008. 

This year’s event drew 41,000 spectators and circuit bosses are keen to build the event, which next year will recall the October 1948 race won by Luigi Villoresi.
