This year's Silverstone Classic will take maximum advantage of Silverstone's latest Grand Prix circuit configuration - a move that will allow the event organiser to field even bigger grids in 2011.

There are a whole load of other things to do over the weekend:

  • Over 800 iconic race cars covering 50 years with F1 Grand Prix cars (front and rear engined), Group C Le Mans (8 litre monsters, Silk Cut Jags, etc), Sports Cars (Ferraris, Maseratis, D-Type Jags, Cobras, etc) & Touring Cars (Big V8 Mustangs, Lotus Cortinas, Mini Coopers, etc) all worth over £50 million and all racing flat out.
  • 50th Anniversary celebration of the E-Type Jaguar - we are expecting over 1,000 on site
  • 6,000 plus classic cars on display from over 120 car clubs showing the best examples of every marque from Aston Martin to Zodiac (Ford) via Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, Bentley, Jaguar, Lotus, Cobra and many more.
  • Celebrity race - last year saw Heston Blumenthal battling with Rick Parfitt Jnr, Tom Chambers, James Martin, Neil Primrose and a dozen other celebs in Abarth 500 race cars
  • Air displays, Track demonstrations & Shopping at over 100 outlets.
  • A free fun fair for all the family.
  • A 'village green' with giant TV screen, Steam Traction Engines perhaps even Punch & Judy!
