With its first-ever six-figure attendance, more than 1,000 race entries, an unprecedented number of car club displays and in excess of £5m of cars sold at auction, this year’s special 25th anniversary Silverstone Classic was another massive record-breaker.
On top of those remarkable milestones, there were stand-out race victories for a number of notable drivers. BTCC champions Matt Neal and Gordon Shedden (below top) teamed up to win the Under 2 Litre Touring Car showdown in their Lotus Cortina while Tim Harvey (below second row) won both Maserati Trophy races for HGPCA Pre ’66 Grand Prix Cars in the ex-Bruce McLaren Cooper T51 – his first single-seater success for more than 25 years.

Concours of Elegance has confirmed the world-beating line-up of cars for its 2015 event at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, including an original 1912 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost (below) London to Edinburgh car.
One of six Rolls-Royce cars in the main Concours event, this particular model was inspired by the Silver Ghost’s return journey from London to Edinburgh in top gear – mimicking the Concours of Elegance’s journey from Hampton Court Palace in 2014 to Holyroodhouse this year.
Do you like to live life in the fast lane and have a passion for cars? If yes, why not treat yourself to a high-speed driving experience at Red Letter Days SummerSpeed on Wednesday 26 August 2015, from 8am – 5pm. Better still win yourself a golden ticket worth £149.

Next, take control of an Abarth for a lap, being marked on factors such as gear change, throttle control and cornering. The three best drivers of the day win a hot air balloon flight for two, worth £300! For a final adrenaline thrill, hold on tight for a high-speed passenger ride in the Abarth driven by a pro. The day has plenty of fun for all the family and the package also includes a free day pass for four people. Read more »
