Silverstone, the home of the oldest race in the Formula 1 calendar, the British Grand Prix, which is the biggest single sporting event held in the UK, and is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2018. Described by the drivers as unbelievably fast, and one of the most challenging tracks on the calendar, 2018 will see Lewis Hamilton returning as champion, in what should be another memorable year in Formula 1.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is an annual hill climb featuring historic motor racing vehicles held in the grounds of Goodwood House. In 2018 the Festival of Speed will celebrate its 25th anniversary: “Festival of Speed – The Silver Jubilee”. The first Festival, in 1993, redefined what a car event could be, and, in the years since, it has firmly established itself as the world’s greatest celebration of motorsport and car culture.
The world’s biggest classic motor racing festival features the cream of historic racing action from Formula One, Sports Cars, GT and Touring Cars. Not only that, but you also have access to the paddocks where you can get close to the cars and talk to the drivers and race preparers. It is not just about the racing though, with live music concerts, air displays, great food and drink, auctions and much more.
