Silverstone Classic Media Day

Mid-March and just after the Goodwood Members Meeting comes the Silverstone Classic Media Day. This is an opportunity for owners and drivers to get some track time in cars they will be bringing to the Silverstone Classic later in the year, whilst providing the event organisers an opportunity to get some publicity for one of the biggest classic motorsport events of the year. As a photographer, this day in particular is always one to look forward to. Not only do you get to see, hear and smell some rare racing cars, but you also get chance to catch up with colleagues who you often see but rarely have chance to talk to.

The photographs here hopefully help highlight some of the great machinery you will see if you attend the Silverstone Classic this July. If you still need to buy tickets, you can find them at the Silverstone Classic website.
