The Silverstone Classic event is being held at the home of the British Grand Prix in Northamptonshire this weekend.

Over 20 races will be held during the three day event and more than 7,000 classic road cars will be on display. Races include the Jaguar E-Type Challenge and the Fujifilm Touring Car Trophy 1970-2000.

The Silverstone Race Circuit is based on a World War II airfield and a number of air displays are also scheduled for this weekend, including displays by the Red Devils and Breitling Wingwalkers.

The event is being held just two weeks after the British Grand Prix at Silverstone proved something of a washout for fans, many of whom were asked to keep away from the qualifying event after torrential rain turned the grass car parks into a mud bath. The forecast for this weekend's event is looking considerably brighter.
