Ford Sierra RS500 30th

The Ford Sierra RS500’s 30th birthday will be celebrated in style at this summer’s Silverstone Classic in July with two very special double-header races. For the first time ever, both JET Super Touring Car Trophy showdowns taking place on the Saturday and Sunday afternoons of the Classic will feature not one, but two grids racing simultaneously.

The first will be filled with high-tech Super Tourers, the second with Group 1 and Group A racing saloons, including a large number of the legendary RS500s. In total, the line-up will feature more than 50 entries spanning more than 25 years of touring car racing history, all still displaying their period liveries.
