Historic F1 races to support the British Grand Prix

24 January 2018

Fans at the British Grand Prix are set to be treated to a fantastic support act in the form of iconic seventies and eighties historic Formula 1 cars from the 3-litre era. The classic racers will feature in two support races staged by Masters Historic Racing on the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit.

Entries in the historic races will come from both the FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship in Europe and the Masters USA series, ensuring a packed grid of cars hailing from Formula 1’s three-litre era. The support races at Silverstone will be the only chance this year to see the historic racers attack a European Grand Prix circuit during a modern F1 race weekend.

“It’s great to know that British F1 fans will now have three opportunities to see our cars compete on British soil in 2018 – at the Silverstone Classic, at our own Masters Historic Festival at Brands Hatch at the end of May, and now too at the British Grand Prix,” said Masters Historic Racing founder Ron Maydon.

“The fact that we have been asked to organise a support race at the British Grand Prix certainly reflects the quality of the show we put on at Montreal, Austin and Mexico City last year. I’m sure that we will evoke many wonderful memories with the spectators that were also present at Silverstone and Brands in the seventies and eighties as well as fascinate the younger part of the crowd.”
