We are hugely disappointed to announce that the Intelligent Money British GT Championship’s blue riband Silverstone 500 event will be held behind closed doors on 7-8 November.

As one of the UK’s major sports venues, Silverstone has been working to the guidance of the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and the safe return of spectators. The circuit has been unable to host fans since March but had been working hard behind the scenes to run British GT’s event with public. We have waited as long as possible to make this announcement but must now sadly concede it is not possible to permit spectators.

All three hours of the Silverstone 500 will be streamed live, free and unrestricted across British GT and SRO’s social media platforms.

British GT Facts

  • This year marks the 28th anniversary of the British GT Championship
  • Silverstone hosted its first British GT race in 1993, which was won by Win Percy aboard a TWR Racing Jaguar XJ220.
  • 2018 fastest GT3 lap: Marco Sorensen, TF Sport Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3: 1m59.725s
  • 2018 fastest GT4 lap: Jack Mitchell, Century Motorsport BMW M4 GT4: 2m12.263s
  • GT3 lap record: Marco Sorensen, TF Sport Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3: 1m59.725s (2018)
  • GT4 lap record: Jack Mitchell, Century Motorsport BMW M4 GT4: 2m12.263s (2018)
  • 2018 GT3 race winners: Mark Farmer and Nicki Thiim, TF Sport Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3
  • 2018 GT4 race winners: Jack Mitchell and Aleksander Schjerpen, Century Motorsport BMW M4 GT4
  • Farmer and Thiim’s Silverstone 500 victory catapulted the duo into title contention and also helped TF Sport claim the teams crown at season’s end. They were the second recipients of the RAC Trophy, which was first awarded at Brooklands in 1932. Meanwhile, Mitchell backed up his Silverstone 500 GT4 win with another next time out at Spa during a mid-season run that would ultimately land him and Century the GT4 Drivers’ and Teams’ titles.

Event Facts

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 (the other being Donington Park) to have hosted a British GT round in every one of its 25 seasons to date.
