Silverstone Classic picks up right where the Goodwood Festival of Speed left off, and since our photographer friend was there, you know what’s coming. Tons of images.
When you’re watching racing on television, it can be a little difficult to get a big-picture view of the race. Watching a car careen around a turn is awesome, but it doesn’t always give a great sense of what it takes to win an entire race.

In order to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911, several of them showed up to parade around England's Silverstone Circuit this weekend. And by several, I mean a record-breaking 1,208 of them.
When three-time world champion Sebastian Vettel's car broke at the British GP on Sunday, the crowd booed him. After the race (cut to 8:22 in the video), he asked them to boo him again.
Formula 1 took this weekend off, so what was Ferrari driver Felipe Massa up to? Well, he wasn't flipping burgers on the grill or drinking beer by the pool. Not this Brazilian — he was too busy leading 964 Ferraris as they raced around the Silverstone Circuit in England.
The F40 is one of the most incredible cars to ever leave the gates of Ferrari's Maranello, Italy factory.
Meet Delft University of Technology's student-built electric race car. Watch it lap the Formula Student UK endurance course at Silverstone earlier this month. Listen to it squeal, whine and chirp like R2-D2 having a tender moment with another droid.
The vast majority of women you meet in motorsports are on the communications side, but it doesn't have to be that way. Former motorsports PR diva Lindsay Orridge decided that if she's tough enough to save Tiff Needell from muggers, she's tough enough to get in there and race with the boys.
Nissan's in-house Juke-R project has produced two running examples of the slightly insane toad/Godzilla crossbreed. The right-hand-drive version recently did laps around England's Silverstone circuit for the benefit of journalists.
This spectacular photo was taken on October 2, 1948, at the first race weekend held on a converted British bomber station whose name you’ll recognize: Silverstone.
The Silverstone Classic puts roughly 7,000 classic cars on and around Britain's historic Silverstone track for a shiny retrogasm. This year's show included a parade of some of our favorite smoking-and-drinking liveries. Silk Cut Jaguars, John Player Special Loti, and Martini Porsches. Oh... cough cough... my!
Under rule changes as capricious as the British weather, Formula One returned to its first-ever venue. Silverstone may be new in layout, but it is also very old, and you still need only three words to describe it: fast, fast, fast. Warning: spoilers.
As part of the rollout of Gran Turismo 5, Sony and Nissan will launch the GT Academy, a contest giving the top U.S. drivers in the game a chance to race professionally. That Stig suit may come in handy.
