Silverstone Classic, the motor racing festival, has announced it is coming to London from July 28-30, 2017 at the ExCeL Centre.

The event will host an extensive display of motoring vehicles; one of the largest within the new Historic Motorsport International (HMI) show, as well as attractions, activities, displays, car clubs, entertainment, shops, aviation and live music.

Race cars for the Classic that have already been confirmed for display at HMI include a scarlet 1960 Ferrari Dino 246, a JPS Lotus 87 DFV-powered F1 car from the FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship, the Ross Brawn Jaguar XJR14 Group C prototype which holds the Silverstone Classic lap record plus a standout pre-war Bentley from the Kidston Trophy grid.

Nick Wigley, CEO of Silverstone Classic, said: “This wonderful opportunity to bring the Silverstone Classic to London was just too good for us to ignore. Hats off to Brand Events for launching this exciting new Historic Motorsport International alongside the flourishing London Classic Car Show at ExCel. The appeal of classic motor sport has never been greater, and we are certain that all those coming to the show will be excited by all that the Silverstone Classic has to offer.”
