Next summer’s Silverstone Classic is already off to a superfast start nine months ahead of the fun-fuelled festival’s eagerly-anticipated return over the weekend of 26-28 July in 2019.
A full range of Super Early Bird tickets went on sale today (Thursday) supported by the launch of a refreshed, new-look silverstoneclassic.com website.
Keeping the pedal to the metal and further whetting appetites, a special Silverstone Classic display will be wowing upward of 500,000 visitors to next weekend’s Regent Street Motor Show (Saturday 3 November).
With London’s flagship shopping destination closed to through traffic all the way from Piccadilly Circus to Oxford Circus, the wide pedestrianised thoroughfare is reserved for a unique automotive showcase, making it the perfect free-to-view shop window to promote all the wonderful entertainment the annual Classic has to offer both on and off the famous Grand Prix circuit.
The on-track action in 2019 will again feature an unrivalled feast of retro races starring the full-spectrum of magical motor sport history and, as ever, the packed racing programme is just one of the major attractions at the three-day festival of Rocking and Racing that promises flat out fun for all the family.
Further fuelling petrol-head passions will be more than 10,000 privately owned classic cars, displayed on the infield by over 120 car clubs as well as a host of interactive driving experiences.
For those with less high-octane blood running through their veins, there are eye-catching air displays, fun-fair rides, stunt shows, an adrenaline zone, a shopping village, live music concerts plus a host of other family entertainment… most of which is included absolutely free in the ticket price.
As well as savouring a handful of the great cars that will be competing at the 2019 Classic, all those attending the Regent Street Motor Show will be able to find out more about what to expect from this year’s event. Icons on display in central London include an imposing Bentley Blower from the 1930s, a racy Mini Cooper S from the Swinging Sixties, a stunning Ligier-Ford JS11 from F1’s fabled DFV era, a mighty V8 propelled De Tomaso Pantera and a sensational Aston Martin DBR9 as raced at Le Mans in 2009.
All those inspired by what they see on Regent Street can take advantage of a full range of Super Early Bird tickets that are now available for those purchasing before the end of the year.
Offering savings of up to 22 per cent on Standard tickets, Super Early Bird adult admission starts at just £35 with the price of the three-day weekend ticket frozen at £99. Full details of all ticket prices – including Parc Fermé and Clubhouse hospitality packages, the RetroRun and camping – can be found on the recharged silverstoneclassic.com website.
