Paddock pass: the 2016 Silverstone Classic

For three days of each year, Northamptonshire’s Silverstone Circuit comes alive with motorsport greats from years gone by.

From early tin tops to 90s touring cars, thunderous Can-Am racers to early ground effect Formula One cars, the Classic allows its spectators to sample racing from multiple epic eras in a matter of hours.

If one thing’s for sure it’s that Silverstone’s Classic does what historic racing does best; and that’s make today’s motorsport look entirely dull.

I did my best to capture what I could from the paddock. Scroll baby scroll..

  1. Superb photographs as usual, Oliver. You have a good eye (and a good camera as well 😉 ). Excuse me for the delay, but we have a lot of problems with the bilingual version (Spanish-English) in my web. As we say in Spain, I started a small Circus but the little dwarfs have grown and don’t fit. 🙁 I must to start from zero instead of continuing with the modifications. Best regards.

    • Hey Mikele, great to hear from you again and thanks for the compliment!

      Sorry to hear you’re having difficulties with your website but do let me know once they’re resolved, I’m interested to see what’s in the pipeline!

      Thanks, Oliver
