Silverstone Classic to celebrate 60 years of BTCC
Alongside 1970s Formula 1 and Masters Endurance Legends grids, the Silverstone Classic will feature four races dedicated to the BTCC's history
The 60th anniversary of the British Touring Car Championship will be celebrated at the highly anticipated 2018 Silverstone Classic, with Sunday’s running dedicated to tin top racing.
In association with TOCA – organiser of the BTCC since 1991 – ‘Tin Top Sunday’ will return to the Classic, having formerly been staged in 2016. This includes four races covering different eras of the championship, with nearly 200 cars expected to enter.
The 'Under 2-Litre Touring Cars' will showcase the excitement of the 1960s and has previously attracted current and former BTCC drivers such as Steve Soper and three-time BTCC champion Gordon Shedden.
A return of the Trans-Atlantic Touring Car Trophy will honour the mid-60s influx of American V8 muscle cars, including Ford Mustangs, Galaxies and Falcons.
Similar to the popular Gerry Marshall Trophy that features prominently during the Goodwood Members’ Meeting, the Historic Touring Car Challenge will return after its debut in 2016 and features grids of Ford Capris, Rover SD1 Vitesses and BMW M3s; as raced in the BTCC during the ‘70s.
Following two races at last year’s Classic, the Super Touring Car Trophy will again celebrate the series’ technical high-point from the iconic Super Touring era of the ‘90s and early 2000s.
Chief executive officer of the Silverstone Classic organiser Goose Live Events, Nick Wigley said: ‘These four evocative grids on Tin Top Sunday will be a wonderful tribute to 60 memorable years of great fender-bending BTCC action.
‘The BTCC boasts an incredible history of thrills and spills stretching right back to 1958 and, in its diamond anniversary year, we are excited to be celebrating its unrivalled provenance both on and off the track at this summer’s very special Classic.’
A host of BTCC stars drivers are expected over the July 20–22 weekend, which will also honour the 60th anniversary of Formula Junior.
