Brown busy in F1 at Sil­ver­stone Clas­sic

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Amer­i­can racer Zak Brown will drive three Grand Prix cars on his de­but at the Sil­ver­stone Clas­sic next month.

Both the ex-jac­ques Vil­leneuve 1996 Wil­liams FW18 and the ex-mika Hakki­nen Mclaren MP4-16A from 2001 won the Bri­tish Grand Prix at Sil­ver­stone and will be driven by Brown and United Au­tosports boss Richard Dean in the ‘Leg­ends of Mod­ern F1’ demon­stra­tion ses­sions.

Brown will also race Jackie Ste­wart’s 1970 March 701 in the FIA Masters His­toric For­mula One Cham­pi­onship dou­ble-header.

The Ken Tyrrell-en­tered March scored the mar­que’s first F1 vic­tory in the 1970 Race of Cham­pi­ons at Brands Hatch and Ste­wart later took sec­ond place in the non­cham­pi­onship Sil­ver­stone In­ter­na­tional Tro­phy.
