WIN!: See classic GTs and F1 cars in action at Silverstone festival

IF you are a petrolhead who would like to spend a day at Silverstone’s classic race festival, you had better be quick off the mark.

We have teamed up with the circuit to offer five family tickets to the glorious celebration of British racing heritage on Saturday, July 24.

There will be 800 cars spanning seven decades of motorsport on show and the chance to watch 23 races between Grand Prix cars, saloons, single seaters and GT racers.

The highlight will be six classic F1 races to mark the 60th anniversary of the first World Championship Grand Prix, which was held at Silverstone in 1950.

But even if the on-track action doesn’t take your fancy, there is plenty to keep people entertained with air displays, fun fairs and live music.
