British GT returns to the Home of British Motor Racing on June 9/10 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 battle for 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 45 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 status as the series’ most prestigious event saw a historic piece of silverware – the 1932 RAC Trophy – awarded to British GT’s overall winners for the first time in 2016. Silverstone also typically attracts the championship’s largest grid of the season, and is the only event on the calendar to a feature a three-hour race.
