next summer’s nostalgia-fuelled Silverstone Classic (20-22 July*) with confirmation that the roar of sixties muscle cars will once again reverberate around the home of the British Grand Prix. The fearsome Trans-Atlantic Touring Car Trophy grid never fails to deliver both shock and awe as full 50+ car grids bristling with mighty Mustangs, Galaxies and Falcons growl into life. Adding to the incredible spectacle – and as in period – the brawny Yank Tanks will share the stage with a sprinkling of more agile European homologation specials such as the Lotus Cortina and Mini Cooper thus
producing some epic David v Goliath entertainment. While the powerful V8 monsters may boss the straights, it is their audacious adversaries that rule the track’s twister sections – and everyone loves a plucky giant-killer. Adult Super Early Bird tickets start from £35 and the cost of the three-day weekend ticket remains at £99. Full details of all 2018 ticket prices – Super Early Bird, Early Bird
