Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Pa­trick Ste­wart OBE will race an Austin A35 at the Sil­ver­stone Clas­sic on 29 July. The 76-year-old Star Trek – The Next Gen­er­a­tion star has passed his rac­ing test and is ready to com­pete in a spe­cial Celebrity Chal­lenge Tro­phy Race.

Ste­wart says: ‘It will be a lot of fun. For some­one who has fol­lowed mo­tor rac­ing since be­ing a teenager, to drive around Sil­ver­stone and ne­go­ti­ate such cor­ners as Beck­etts and Stowe will be a thrill.’

Other fa­mous faces in the line-up in­clude Dragon’s Den star Theo Paphi­tis and for­mer Top Gear pre­sen­ter Tiff Needell. All will be rac­ing com­pe­ti­tion-pre­pared Austin A30 and A35s in aid of Prostate Can­cer UK. The cars’ own­ers will qual­ify on the Fri­day and race on the Sun­day, with the celebri­ties in ac­tion on the Satur­day.
