Celebrity Race

There will be a star-studded grid for the inaugural Celebrity Challenge Trophy Race on Saturday evening at this year’s Silverstone Classic. The line-up features five gold medal-winning athletes: cyclist Jason Kenny, skeleton racer Amy Williams (pictured) and rowers Jonny Searle, Greg Searle and Mark Hunter.

Other big names include Howard Donald from Take That and Brian Johnson, who fronted rock legends AC/DC for more than 35 years. All the drivers will be racing flat-out in Austin A30 and A35 saloons from the late 1950s to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.
