Capri, not GP, for me!

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

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.’
