2018 Silverstone Classic Preview Day
This years Silverstone Classic Preview (or Media) Day was held at the start of May, some 6 weeks later than the previous year. I’m unsure of the reasoning behind this shift of date, but can’t help but wonder if there was a small glimmer of hope that the weather would be more forgiving in May than you usually find in the UK in March. However, that hope was to be short lived, as even in May the weather can decide to not play ball and with torrential rain at one point making the thought of standing out in it somewhat unpalatable, thoughts of warmer, drier conditions remained just that, thoughts!
However, even the weather cannot dampen the spirits when there is a day of photography ahead, and with the changeable conditions adding to the challenge, opportunities in and around the fantastic International Paddock where plentiful.
The Silverstone Classic Preview Day aims to give those in the media the chance to see some of the cars lined up for this years event, along with some insight into the celebrations that will take place (this year its the turn of the beautiful Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona with its 50th Birthday amongst some other big milestones in motor racing).
If you are thinking of going to the Silverstone Classic this year, then make sure you get your tickets early, as the event will no doubt sell out again, and tickets cannot be bought on the day, you have to get them in advance. Click this link to visit the official website:Silverstone Classic
