The meeting, known for its friendly and informal atmosphere, is a great favourite of many competitors, marshals and spectators alike and 2018 sees the 69th consecutive visit to the Northamptonshire track.

Current plans are for nine grids overall featuring a diverse range of cars from AC, MG, Porsche, Aston Martin and the traditional Morgan Championship round. Of course there will be plenty of Bentley action with two dedicated all-Bentley grids, a scratch and handicap race and even more Bentley action with various ‘allcomers’ grids.

Club Competitions Captain Sebastian Welch summed up the Bentley Silverstone race day: “It’s a celebration of Club racing at its best, where all makes and models compete against each other in a fiercely amicable way. In fact as long as you are a member of one of our invited clubs you are very welcome to join us no matter what make of car you wish to race”. This event is one not to miss for any Bentley enthusiast.
