Bring the noise! Silverstone is all set to celebrate its 75th anniversary in fantastic style in front of a record crowd. 
The famous venue’s pits and paddocks are already brimming with hundreds of legendary racing icons from yesteryear, podiums are ready to receive winners, the display areas are on standby to welcome thousands of cherished classic cars, the entertainment zones are all set to wow visitors and the Main Stage is sound-checked in readiness for chart-topping bands on all three evenings. Even the end-of-summer Bank Holiday weather seems set fair for the weekend. 
With gates opening at 07:30am on Friday (tomorrow) morning, the must-see Silverstone Festival is primed for three days of epic entertainment for all ages both on and off Silverstone’s famous Grand Prix circuit. 
While the hallowed track will witness no fewer than 20 evocative retro races spanning Silverstone’s incredible 75 years of high-octane history, this weekend’s Festival is maximising its Bank Holiday date by offering more fun-fuelled family entertainment than ever before.
Highlights include: a mouth-watering Foodie Fest spiced up with celebrated chefs hosting demonstrations on the Silverstone Kitchen Live Stage; an artisan market packed with local produce; a Tasting Tent and even a pop-up from Jeremy Clarkson’s renowned Diddly Squat Farm Shop – sure to be a big draw among petrolheads, tv fanatics and foodistas. 
Silverstone will be showcasing its own amazing Formula 1 heritage, too, with special displays including an interactive Fan Zone giving visitors the chance to get within touching distance of the latest F1 cars from Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant, BWT Alpine, McLaren, Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS and Williams Racing alongside simulators and other hands-on attractions. Adding to the 75th special anniversary celebrations, all tickets also give access to the award-winning Silverstone Museum.
Dishing up yet more spectacle, a posse of rumbling NASCAR cars – as featured in the blockbuster Days of Thunder movie – will be taking to the famous Silverstone Grand Prix circuit for the very first time. With mighty V8 engines under their hoods, these amazing 200+mph American racing icons will be wowing all-comers with daily demos (photo above). Like Silverstone NASCAR is celebrating its own 75th anniversary in 2023.
“The Bank Holiday sun will be shining and Silverstone is ready to deliver its best-ever Festival. You can feel the excitement building,” reports Nick Wigley, CEO of the Festival promoter Goose Live Events. “We really wanted to honour this special milestone in Silverstone’s history in terrific style and this year’s line-up certainly lives up to that stellar 75th birthday billing. It’s not to be missed.”
