Saloons will flood the circuit at Silverstone
Some 160 period racing saloons will compete during ‘Tin Top Sunday’ at this weekend’s Silverstone Classic.
What is considered to be the biggest-ever gathering of period racing saloons will compete across four races, with cars ranging from Mini Coopers and Lotus Cortinas of the early 1960s to the final Super Touring cars from 2000.
The burgeoning Historic Touring Car Challenge has the biggest entry with 52 cars including Ford Capris for World Touring Car champion Rob Huff and historic legend Willie Green.
A total of 22 US V8s will contest the Pre ’66 race but face the Mini Cooper of Jonathan Lewis and Martin O’connell, which also runs in the U2TC race.
