Established in 1943, RAF Silverstone, as it was known then, was originally a military airfield and famously home to the Wellington Bombers. The track features 2 long straights which formerly served as runways for this detachment of the air force: the most notable of these stretches was called the ‘National Straight’ and has since be renamed the ‘Wellington Straight’ after its famous bomber pilots. Silverstone was also the site of the first ever Formula 1 race in 1950 and has played host to the British Grand Prix for F1 ever since. Lewis Hamilton holds the record for the most wins on this track, with 6 to his name and shows no signs of stopping, but there were plenty of legendary drivers that have graced the track over the years: Alain Prost, Nigel Mansell and Jim Clark, just to name a few.
Silverstone is also the current home for the MotoGP British Grand Prix too and has been for over a decade now. Silverstone displaced Donnington—the W2R headquarters, in fact—as the chosen venue in 2009 and despite racing legend, Valentino Rossi having the most British titles under his belt (8), it is “one of the greatest rivals of his career” and the now retired, Jorge Lorenzo that has the most wins at Silverstone, with 3 British Grands Prix to his name.
The racing heritage doesn’t stop there either: Silverstone has long been the star site for Touring Cars, Superbikes, Caterham and, of course, Ginetta racing, as well as countless other motor sports. Silverstone has become a national institution not only in the world of racing, but as a cultural landmark in its own right. The best example of this is Silverstone Classic, a world-renowned 3-day event of all-round entertainment for the past 30 years, offering everything from the high-octane racing action and vehicle showcases that you would expect, to live music, fairground amusements and charity fun runs.
There are few better places to experience a premium track day than the home of British F1 at Silverstone, and they are sure to fill up fast.
