The Silverstone Classic is a fabulous 3 day weekend of ‘flat out fun for all the family!’
Camping at the Classic is a great way to get the most out of the event. You can relax on the campsite and when you’re ready, hop on a complimentary tractor shuttle to the circuit gate… or if you feel like stretching your legs, it’s only a short walk. We’re open from Thursday morning so there’s plenty of time to set up camp before heading into the ‘World’s Biggest Classic Motor Racing Festival’.
