A panel of experts has prepared a shortlist of 15 iconic cars covering all the great British marques and enthusiasts can vote online for their own favourite via the official website of the Silverstone Classic.
As well as being firmly established as the world’s biggest classic racing festival, the annual Silverstone Classic also features one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of classic cars. This summer’s three-day event will see more than 120 UK car clubs displaying in excess of 7000 cars including large numbers of those shortlisted on-line for the coveted ‘Best British Sportscar’ title.
Centre stage this year goes to the E-type Jaguar with the Silverstone Classic chosen by all the major Jaguar clubs as the location for the legendary model’s official 50th birthday party. The target for the event is to have 1000 E-types on display and then send them on to the Grand Prix circuit during Saturday to set a Guinness World Record for the greatest number of E-types in a parade.
But the E-type isn’t the only car shortlisted other cars include MG (MGA and MGB), AC Cobra, Aston Martin DB5, Morgan and TVR Griffith amongst many more favourites.
