Weekend Report

The Silverstone Classic 2012 was held last weekend at the famed Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit, where over 1000 competitors raced more than 800 Classic race cars spanning the spectrum of motorsport history.

Group C was fortunate to be part of this major event again this year and were the feature ‘Twilight’ race on Saturday.

Group C would like to thank all of the organising team involved in The Silverstone Classic, Goose Communications, HSCC and in particular, Nick Wigley for making our attendance possible.  There was certainly a large spectator attendance and it all added up to making a fantastic event with a truly great atmosphere.

After a delayed qualifying session on Friday evening due to heavy rain the Group C cars finally made it out on to a very wet track. Fastest Qualifying laps went to:

C1 - Christophe D’Ansembourg/Herve Regout (Jagermeister Porsche 962) – 2m12.297

C2 – Peter Meyrick (Spice SE89C) – 2m19.196

On Saturday the sun blessed us with its presence and saw the magnificent Group C cars running into the evening dusk.  With headlights ablaze and brake discs glowing, the cars made a magical sight as the sun set over the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit.

Below are the Group C winners from the weekend in C1 and C2...
