Silverstone Classic 2013

Posted on 28, July 2013

The highlight of any classic car owners year are two events. Goodwood, and the Silverstone Classic. I’m ashamed to say I’ve never been to the Goodwood Festival, and I haven’t been to the Silverstone Classic for many years. However, on Saturday I got given some unwanted tickets so I couldn’t exactly turn them down.

All I can say is… wow. What a fantastic show. I turned up and started off by looking around the massive Porsche display, in celebration of 50 years of the 911.
As I did, the Astons did a lap to mark their centenary and Spitfires flew over head. Beautiful!

In summary, its a fantastic day out and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys cars. That sounds very cliche but honestly, it was brilliant.
