Historic F1 races to support 2018 British Grand Prix
Grids of 30 cars from the 1970s and ’80s will support a European GP for the very first time during a Formula 1 weekend
Two Masters Historic Formula 1 Championship races will support the British Grand Prix this year, with 3-litre cars from the 1970s and ’80s taking part.
A 30-strong grid is expected, with entries coming from both the European and Masters USA FIA Historic F1 Championships.
The July 5-8 weekend will be the only time that the older cars feature alongside the 2018 F1 field during the European calendar, and is also the first time ever that the two have run on the same billing in Europe.
Last season, the Historic Championship also featured at the Canadian, United States and Mexican grands prix.
Masters Historic Racing founder Ron Maydon said: ‘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 1970s and ’80s, as well as fascinate the younger part of the crowd.
‘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.’
The majority of the field runs with the Cosworth DFV engine, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year.
Stuart Pringle, managing director of Silverstone, said: ‘We regularly ask our fans for feedback on how we can further improve their British Grand Prix experience. Requests for more track action and the opportunity to see classic Formula 1 cars are always high up on the list.
‘I believe the inclusion of the two Masters Historic Formula 1 races on the timetable will tick both those boxes. It will not only be a fantastic crowd-pleaser, but also a great addition to the weekend in a year that sees Silverstone celebrate its 70th anniversary.’
