    Was looking forward to being there, but in the meantime they have this.

    Coming up this weekend is our Online 30th Anniversary Party. We hope you’ll join us!

    We’re delighted that Tiff Needell and Louise Goodman are hosting this weekend’s special Silverstone Classic Online 30th Anniversary Party. In recent years they’ve teamed up to front ITV4’s coverage of the Classic so it’s brilliant to have their support this weekend.

    We’ll be releasing a series of programmes on our YouTube channel over the weekend with the first being available from 7pm on Friday evening. If you’re not already a subscriber to us on You Tube, sign-up before the weekend and you’ll be notified when a new programme becomes available. You can then either watch these as soon as they’re released, or at your leisure at a later time. More details on what to expect this weekend are detailed below. We’ve kept Saturday and Sunday afternoon clear so those of you that want to enjoy the British Grand Prix taking place behind closed doors at Silverstone this weekend can.

    Thanks to those of you who have played a part in helping us put this together. We hope you enjoy it!

    Your welcome should be some races of interest.
    Was really looking forward to a good weekend. nothing quite like seeing these things being thrashed by the experts! sound would have been good to hear too.. The sound of the old f1 in particular and the rumble of deep v8s
    MMm maybe next year.
    I suspect so they can be activated in u tube I think.

    Yes this years event was cancelled due to the madness created by the virus. So highlights only but good races or at least should be. Vintage f1 +
