Aston heritage race series set for Silverstone Classic

Published 08 February 2019

This year’s Silverstone Classic on 26-28 July will host the first round of the newly-launched Aston Martin Heritage Racing Festival Series.

Confirmation of the new Aston Martin Heritage Racing Festival Series is the final addition to a record-breaking 21-race programme covering a ten decades of glorious motor sport history ranging from the iconic green Bentleys of the 1920s right up to these timeless Aston Martins that were competing at Le Mans and the Nürburgring as recently as last year.

The series is open to all non-current Aston Martin GT class race cars – notably stunning DBR9s and Vantage GT2/GT3/GT4/N24/GTE models as well as some even more exotic specials such as the mighty Aston Martin Vulcan.

This year, for the very first time, the unparalleled on-track line-up stars spectacular showdowns for historic Formula 1, Formula 2 and Formula 3 single-seaters plus a pair of special Mini races to mark the little legend’s 60thbirthday. Bentley’s centenary and the 50thanniversary of the Ford Capri are also being honoured in terrific sporting style on track.

Visitors not wanting to miss this unprecedented line-up of blockbuster grids from yesteryear can take advantage of an Early Bird initiative which offers significant savings for those buying now. Adult tickets start at just £37 and adhere to the Classic’s widely-praised ‘access all areas’ policy.

Admission includes access to both race paddocks, the majority of the funfair rides and family fun activities, dynamic demonstrations, car clinics, trackside grandstands as well as both evenings of live music concerts.

Full details of all tickets (which must be purchased in advance) – as well as hospitality packages and weekend festival camping – can be found on the official website.
