May > Sil­ver­stone His­toric Fes­ti­val Top billing on this week­end de­voted to clas­sic rac­ing weaponry goes to a re­cre­ation of the Daily Ex­press In­ter­na­tional Tro­phy. Dur­ing its 30-year life, this pop­u­lar an­nual non-cham­pi­onship F1 fix­ture also ad­mit­ted F2 and F5000 ma­chines to present a truly eclec­tic grid. Ex­pect to see ma­chines from the ’50s through to the ’80s 27-28 May > FIA Masters His­toric Fes­ti­val, Brands Hatch Flash back to the days when this evoca­tive Kent venue hosted the Bri­tish Grand Prix and a packed home crowd roared their ap­proval at the an­tics of James Hunt. The FIA Masters His­toric F1 cham­pi­onship head­lines a full programme of rac­ing, which in­cludes tour­ing cars and sportscars from the 1950s through to the 1970s, re­call­ing the days when F1 driv­ers reg­u­larly raced in other for­mu­lae be­tween grand prix week­ends (and even, some­times, on the same bill). To cater for the dis­par­ity in per­for­mance be­tween cars built a decade or more apart, the his­toric F1 grid is split into four classes. Last year Nick Pad­more won the over­all ti­tle in Max Smith-Hil­liard’s ex-Carlos Reute­mann Williams FW07C; ground-ef­fect cars tend to run at the sharp end, but the rest of the grid is a fas­ci­nat­ing mix of ma­chin­ery, mostly from the 1970s 28 May > F1 Monaco Grand Prix, Monte Carlo
