Free tickets to Silverstone Classic, 2 weeks until we award 1 pair of free tickets.

Further to my post earlier in the month, Win a pair of free tickets to the 2011 Silverstone Classic, we have received some good comments and reasons why our readers should win a pair of free tickets to this years Silverstone Classic.

With two weeks to go, everyone has a chance to win this great prize.  Our previous winner, Trevor Summers, who won a pair of tickets to the Donington Historic Festival left many comments on many of the posts across the site, added insightful opinion and was a rightful winner.  I encourage all readers to do similar for this competition, which will give you the best chance of winning the tickets to this years Silverstone Classic.

Why don’t you tell me your best memory of Silverstone here?

One (and there have been many) of my memorable moments was in 1991 when Mansell-Mania greeted the drivers as they arrived at Silverstone for the British Grand Prix.

Mansell qualified on pole in front of his home fans, with title-rival Ayrton Senna second. Riccardo Patrese was third, followed by Gerhard Berger, Alain Prost, Jean Alesi, Roberto Moreno, Nelson Piquet, Maurício Gugelmin, and Stefano Modena. Senna made a rocket start to lead Mansell, while Patrese was the first casualty of the day, having been bumped off by Berger. Senna’s lead didn’t last for long as Mansell re-passed him going into Stowe corner.

Mansell won (get in there my son), while rival Senna ran out of fuel on the last lap, he would be classified fourth.

What made it for me was the sportsmanship that Mansell demonstrated when on his celebration lap he stopped to give Ayrton Senna (genius) a lift back to the pits on the sidepod of his Williams FW14, after Senna’s own McLaren MP4/6 ran out of fuel on the final lap.  Watch it on video below:

    My favourite memory of Silverstone is the WSC race of 1991. The two jaguar XJR 14’s qualified a country mile in front of the rest of the grid, and after the first lap of the race Teo Fabi in the one jag had a massive lead but Brundle’s Jag was limping around at the back of the pack with a broken throttle. He made it back to the pits on tickover and after repairs fought back to finish 3rd overall. His drive through the field was absolutely stunning, and the memory of watching him through the old bridge corner all arms and elbows will never leave me. The GrpC series is at the Silverstone Classic and one of the remaining XJR14’s is due to make an appearance in the line up, I would love to hear that Cosworth HB around Silverstone again.

    It’s a seperate competition, however, the more comments you leave and add value to the site, the more inclined the team will be to award you a pair of tickets.

    Good luck.

    Hi Will
    Would you consider my earlier post to enter me for the comp for free Silverstone Classic tickets or will I have to start again.

    Glad to hear your feedback on the dream garage section, it is a particular passion and favourite of mine for sure. Like all petrol heads we all have a dream garage, I’m very slowly working towards having one myself, but slower than I would like.

    Have to say I’m jealous of anyone that has a GT40. I really would like to have a GT40, replica obviously, unless a lottery win comes my way. I’d probably go for a gulf racing colours, 2nd or 3rd hand, which I believe you can pick up for £30-40k. I’d race it, or track day it, not sure I could stump up the courage to race an original £1 million car.

    If you know anyone with a dream garage like the ones featured, I would love to hear from them.

    Sorry Will, not been commenting much recently although I try to keep an eye on the site. I particularly like the dream garage series you run.

    Yes still have the GT40, came very close to parting with it for an Aston Martin Vanquish but decided that I’d kick myself if I didn’t see the GT finished. Glad I stuck with it as I am really enjoying working on the car at the moment.


  • Will Wynn says:


    Long time. Have you still got the GT40, or succumbed to selling that beautiful car?

    I agree with you that the Classic is one of my favourites, if not the favourite.

    Not so sure you need to commit to the whole weekend though. We go every year for one full day and sleep over near by, and then we can have a few beverages and take in the evening entertainment, which is always a good atmosphere.

    Maybe I’ll see you there.

    Looks like you’ve got another great prize to easily one of the best classic car weekends anywhere in the world.

    I’ve not been for a few years but I’d urge anyone that’s not been to try to make the classic. The cars are fantastic and seeing some of the most special classic cars on the planet racing is sight to behold. I’ve been to a lot of cars shows over the years and the classic is by far my favourite. The atmosphere is great and with the new facilities at Silverstone I dare say this year could be the best yet.

    One last thing, go for the whole weekend as 1 day isn’t long enough to get round the whole show.
