Classic Car Father’s Day Gift

Coveted tickets to the world’s biggest classic car racing festival are a great way to spoil dads on Father’s Day, fast approaching on 19 June.


Moreover, as this summer’s Silverstone Classic (29-31 July) offers unrivalled entertainment for all ages – and a new Family Ticket option – the entire family can join in the high-speed thrills and spills, making what is already an unforgettable Father’s Day gift all the more special.


No matter what his particular interest, any action-loving dad will be blown away by a visit to the dazzling Silverstone Classic for an amazing flat-out trip down memory lane. Across three full days of non-stop entertainment, there will be a glittering array of attractions and activities, headed by a glorious line-up of unmissable races on the famous Silverstone Grand Prix circuit. These feature many of the world’s rarest, most spectacular and valuable racing cars from past golden eras.


Ranging from the evocative racers of the 1930s to the high-tech machines from the 1990s, the stellar race card will deliver some of the most eye-catching grids ever seen in Great Britain covering the history of Formula 1, Le Mans, sports, touring and GT cars.


As has become customary, live music will also be a popular feature over the weekend, with crowd-pleasing concerts on the evenings of both Friday (29 July) and Saturday (30 July) maintaining the fabulous event’s ‘Rocking and Racing’ tradition. Chart-toppers The Boomtown Rats will strut their stuff on Friday, while Saturday’s performances are headlined by Reef and The Stranglers. Entry to all these rock concerts is included within the general circuit admission price.


“The Silverstone Classic is the biggest and best classic motor racing festival in the world as well as one of Europe’s most entertaining and action-packed car-themed events,” said Nick Wigley, CEO of organisers, Goose Live Events. “There really is something for everyone – that’s why a family day out at the Silverstone Classic is the perfect Father’s Day gift for any dad with even the smallest drop of high-octane fuel in his veins.”


Adult admission is from just £42 and considerable savings are on offer for those festival-goers spending the full weekend at Silverstone. This year there’s also a special Family Ticket. Full details can be found on the official website.
