GT legends set to excite at Silverstone

0

A massive grid of 1990s GT cars is set to star at the Silverstone Classic, taking place from 25-27 July. The all-new lineup will include 40 of the fastest and most desirable BRP Global GT, GT1 and GT2 cars campaigned between 1994-'00, which will be demonstrated for 25 minutes on each day of the event.

Mercedes and Porsche dominated the GT1 category in period, while Chrysler had great success in GT2 with its all-conquering Viper.

Among the pin-ups taking to the track will be the McLaren F1, an example of which won at Le Mans first time out in 1995. It will be joined by a Lister Storm, two Harrier LR9s and a pair of Venturi 400 Trophys, plus a Martini-liveried Jaguar XJ220.

“We are always looking to broaden the Classic’s appeal and the introduction of these 90s GT Legends certainly does that in fantastic style,” enthused event director, Nick Wigley.

The Super Touring Car Championship that visited Silverstone in its inaugural season last year is making a return to the Towcester circuit, adding to the '90s nostalgia of the GT Legends grid. A plethora of historic touring cars is set to take to the circuit, with firm favourites from the golden era of the BTCC such as the Nissan Primera, Vauxhall Vectra and Renault Laguna sure to excite.

John Cleland, Tim Harvey and Patrick Watts all plan on reliving their glory days by taking to the track in their old tin tops.
