Neil Glover - 1982 Arrows A5

Historic F1 at the Silverstone Classic 2017

One of the most anticipated races at the Silverstone Classic is the Historic F1, where we get chance to see cars such as the Hesketh 308B (1974), the Shadow DN5 (1975) the Williams FW07 (1981), and the Arrows A5 (1982). These are the F1 cars that many grew up watching on the TV, so getting to see them up close and in person is always a pleasure and can bring back a flood of memories.

I particularly like the opportunity to photograph the drivers when they are sitting in these cars, ready to go out on track and demonstrate just how powerful these cars are. Below is a selection of shots from in and around the pitlane of these legendary cars and their drivers.
