Capri, not GP, for me!
McLaren Formula 1 team boss, Zak Brown, will skip the Hungarian Grand Prix to race at the Silverstone Classic on 28-30 July. In a move that echoes a tactic undertaken by his driver, Fernando Alonso (who recently missed the Monaco Grand Prix to contest the Indianapolis 500), Brown will race a Williams FW07B Formula 1 car in the two FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship races and a Ford Cologne Capri RS3100 in the pair of JET Super Touring Trophy showdowns. Brown says: ‘I’m really excited to get back to the Silverstone Classic – it’s a great event with so many historic cars there. I’m thrilled to include my Williams FW07 and Ford Capri in the mix. I’ve driven the Williams a few times and I love it. I can’t wait to take the Capri out too. It will be the first time I’ve entered it into a race – it’s a pleasure to drive and sounds great.’
