Coming to the Classic, where do you find us?
The Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club takes its place on the Copse Banking again this year. Alongside other Jaguar Car Clubs we expect over 500 Jaguars to be displayed making this an awesome sight of our favorite marque. Copse Corner is one of the fastest corners of the F1 circuit and our parking provides a great place to sit and watch the cars race by.
2016 Silverstone Classic
Rocking and Racing
Every year Silverstone Classic delivers a mix of racing throughout the day before the music kicks off in the evening. With an action packed three days of racing from the monstrous Group C racing, Formula legends, tin tops and many more, there is certain to be something to enjoy on track. The evening turns its attention to music and 2017 we have the ultimate summer with The Who, Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles tribute bands taking to the stage on Friday night before Saturday night sees Spandau Ballet and Dire Straits tributes rocking the night away.
What other Jaguar fun is there?
The event is celebrating 25 years of the famous Jaguar XJ220, with over 35 examples expected on the track parade on Saturday. This will include 3 special Le Mans examples, one of which has traveled all the way from Japan to be there. It is not often you get the opportunity to see this many XJ220's in the same location.
Jaguar return with the F-Type experience. This is great tyre smoking fun especially if you are a fan of drifting and doughnuts as the expert drivers take you around the short figure of 8 circuit in quick time. All recorded for prosperity too a broadcast on their big screen for extra giggles. Be quick and early though, queues get long and stock of Pirelli tyres gets short.
The Jaguar challenge takes to the track for the first time at the F1 circuit this year. A grid of Pre '66 Classic Jaguars will line up in the third round of this growing challenge and give us Jaguar fans another spectacle to enjoy. If you love Jaguar there is plenty to entertain you this year.
