While the Golden Ticket prize draw is not-to-be-missed, all those coming to The Classic next year will be winners. The world’s biggest historic motor racing festival is being staged over the end-of-summer August Bank Holiday weekend – a change of date that brings with it huge attractions for Silverstone’s end of summer celebration.
The record-breaking three-day festival will still run from Friday to Sunday but with an extended track programme on Sunday, live music across all three days, a commitment to providing the finest produce and quintessential food classics, and more entertainment than ever before, there’s never been a better time to spend the whole weekend at The Classic. Campers going for the full festival experience can stay until midday on Monday before a leisurely drive home.
A full list of bands, epic retro races, anniversary parades and all the other family entertainment planned for 2022 will be revealed in the coming months. Those buying their tickets in time for Christmas are promised another record-breaking Classic at the best possible prices.
“Every year we set ourselves the challenge of delivering an even better Classic than before – and every year we’ve succeeded. So I can say with enormous confidence that next year will be the biggest and best ever!” confirmed Nick Wigley, CEO of The Classic promoter Goose Live Events.
“For starters we will have even more terrific live music than ever before and the move to the Bank Holiday weekend will open up a raft of other great opportunities. We already have some really exciting plans – both on and off the track – which we’ll be announcing in the coming months. In the meantime, I wish all those buying their tickets on the opening day the best of luck in the prize draws – there really are some fabulous prizes on offer.”
As has become so popular at The Classic, all tickets will give access to both racing paddocks, open trackside grandstand seating and much of the fabulous family entertainment on offer.
