British GT returns to the Home of British Motor Racing on June 10/11 for its annual blue riband event: the Silverstone 500. A packed grid of GT3 and GT4 machinery, featuring the likes of Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bentley, will do battle over three hours around the world famous venue’s full GP configuration. Take a look at some of the amazing cars that will feature at Silverstone here.

Silverstone’s original GP layout played host to the second ever British GT meeting in 1993 when Win Percy’s development-spec Jaguar XJ220 romped to an emphatic victory. Since then its National, International and various GP circuits have welcomed the championship on another 44 occasions, while Silverstone is one of just two venues to have hosted a British GT round in every one of its 25 seasons to date.

Silverstone’s significance as the championship’s blue riband event has prompted organisers to inaugurate a new, standalone trophy for the overall winners’ of this year’s 500-kilometre race. Silverstone also typically attracts British GT’s largest grid of the season; 51 cars entered the 2016 round as part of a combined British GT/European GT4 entry.

The 2017 provisional entry list for the Silverstone 500 can be viewed here.

Keep up to date with the championship by visiting the British GT website.
