This year’s Silverstone Classic, the world’s biggest Classic Motor Racing Festival, attracted a record crowd (94,000 visitors) plus a new world record number of race entries. It also staged the world’s biggest ever parade of Grand Prix cars as well as special celebrations to mark Maserati’s centenary and 50 years of the Ford Mustang. A number of TIGOSE Members attended or participated with their own cars, or cars prepared for their clients (see picture gallery). A crowd of 94,000 flocked to Silverstone – the biggest in the award-winning Classic’s 24-year history – and they were treated to 24 on-track grids featuring no fewer than 1,125 entries which covered the full spectrum of motor racing history. A special one-hour television programme showcasing many of the Classic’s most notable moments is screened on ITV4 at 21:00hrs on Thursday 14 August, aired again at 19:00hrs on Saturday 16 August and at 13:05hrs on Sunday 17 August. Sadly the 2014 event also witnessed its first fatality in its 24-year history when Denis Welch lost his life competing in the HGPCA race for pre-1966 Grand Prix cars on Sunday afternoon. A tribute to Welch, and details of his funeral, can be found on the official www.silverstoneclassic.com website.
