The world's biggest classic motor racing festival - the Silverstone Classic
Silverstone offers a challenging flow of fast corners and some good overtaking opportunities.
Turn 1, Copse, is a 280km/h right-hander in an F1 car which requires just a dab of the brakes and a flick of the wrist. The most enjoyable section for the drivers is Maggots, where cars thread turning left, right, left, right, left, and rely a lot of the time just on engine braking. Most of the overtaking opportunities can be found on the Hangar Straight, before turning into the 240km/h Stowe corner. From Stowe the driver and riders head along Vale into Club and turn right through Abbey and onto the new section which encompasses Farm Curve, The Loop (Arena), Village Corner and onto the high speed Wellington Straight. The BRDC clubhouse is located just before the cars turn left under brakes into Brooklands, Luffield and then onto the Woodcote section where spectators can see the cars at slower speed.
Overall, the team that succeeds will have developed the best aerodynamic efficiency. This is a very fast and flowing circuit, but it also suffers terribly from crosswinds which threaten the cars' balance.
