Silverstone Classic launch free test drives for 2018
Included in the ticket price is the Classic's new scheme that will allow visitors to drive some of the latest showroom models during the historic racing festival
Organisers of this year’s Silverstone Classic have announced a new ‘Drive Live’ feature, which will allow visitors to test cars around the circuit’s local roads.
Across the July 20-22 race weekend, the 100,000 who attend will be able to drive the latest cars from a range of manufacturers.
CEO of organisers Goose Live Events, Nick Wigley said: ‘Having so many knowledgeable and enthusiastic car lovers at the Classic, it was perhaps no surprise that our customer research revealed that those attending the event were really keen to check out some of the best new models on the market – the introduction of Drive Live will let them do just that.’
‘Drive Live’ is included in the ticket prices, which start from £37, and so far Lexus is the first marque to confirm it will run the scheme.
Jason Stanley, general manager of Lexus marketing and strategy at Lexus UK added: ‘Drive Live at the Silverstone Classic provides us with the perfect opportunity to give visitors the chance to experience our Lexus Self Charging Hybrid range first-hand. We’re excited to be a part of this new initiative, enabling motoring enthusiasts to get behind the wheel and try out a Lexus for themselves’.
The Drive Live showcase will be based in the event’s Shopping Village area.
