The Silverstone Classic 2012 was held 20-22 July at the famed 3.6 mile Silverstone Grand Prix circuit in Northamptonshire, England, featuring over 1000 classic race car entrants spanning the spectrum of motorsport history.
The 2012 edition of the Silverstone Classic saw the return of the Group C endurance racing cars with two feature races, World Sports Car Masters, three Formula 1 and Grand Prix grids showcasing over 100 GP cars spanning the fifties to the eighties, Formula Junior, the beautiful and charismatic 1950’s sports cars, Under 2-Litre Touring Cars, two grids of GT cars and the Jaguar E-Type Challenge.
Event director Nick Wigley commented, “Summer returned in style just in time for another truly memorable Silverstone Classic. There were so many highlights with fantastic racing, amazing parades, the birth of AA World and some fabulous live music and, not surprisingly, taking all that into account a new record crowd.”
