Packed Formula 3 grids promised for the Silverstone Classic

| 18 Dec 2013

The heyday of Formula 3 – the proving ground for a wealth of F1 aces – is to be celebrated at the Silverstone Classic.

Next year's festival from 25-27 July will host two huge F3 grids run to the HSCC's Classic F3 Championship regulations and will feature cars raced by the likes of Senna, Piquet and Prost between 1971 and 1984.

“Whether it was Nelson Piquet dueling with Derek Warwick or Ayrton Senna battling with Martin Brundle, that age of Formula 3 is fondly remembered by lots of motor sport enthusiasts,” said Event Director, Nick Wigley. “Many of those well-loved cars are back competing today and we are working closely with the Historic Sports Car Club to put together a field that will not only be the biggest F3 grid ever assembled but also be full of iconic cars, many still competing in their famous period liveries.”
