Classic dates confirmed

The Silverstone Classic

Next summer’s Silverstone Classic has been confirmed for the weekend of July 26-28.

The date had already been announced but remained ‘provisional’ until Formula One’s governing body, the FIA, formally ratified its 2019 calendar at this week’s meeting of its World Motor Sport Council in St Petersburg.

With the British Grand Prix at Silverstone now rubber stamped for Sunday July 14, the Silverstone Classic can officially take its traditional place in the calendar a fortnight after Formula One headlines at the home of British motor racing.

Coming at the start of the summer holidays, the hugely popular three-day Classic is expecting another 100,000-plus crowd and a star-studded line-up of drivers. Though tickets have been on sale since October, festival-goers who were waiting for a verified date can still take advantage of the Super Early Bird offer available until the end of December.

These tickets offering significant savings of up to 22 per cent on standard tickets and adult admission currently start at £35 with the price of the three-day weekend ticket frozen at £99. Full details of all ticket prices – including Parc Fermé and Clubhouse hospitality packages, the RetroRun experience and camping – can be found on the website.
