The thundering V8s are returning to the Classic next year!⠀ ⠀ #AmericanMuscle #V8 #MercuryCometCyclone⠀ ⠀ The rumble of V8 thunder is returning to next summer’s nostalgia-fuelled Silverstone Classic (20-22 July*) with confirmation that the roar of sixties muscle cars will once again reverberate around the home of the British Grand Prix.⠀ ⠀ The fearsome Trans-Atlantic Touring Car Trophy grid never fails to deliver both shock and awe as full 50+ car grids bristling with mighty Mustangs, Galaxies and Falcons growl into life.⠀ ⠀ Adding to the incredible spectacle – and as in period – the brawny Yank Tanks will share the stage with a sprinkling of more agile European homologation specials such as the Lotus Cortina and Mini Cooper thus producing some epic David v Goliath entertainment. While the powerful V8 monsters may boss the straights, it is their audacious adversaries that rule the track’s twistier sections – and everyone loves a plucky giant-killer.⠀ ⠀ Celebrating the re-introduction of the eye-catching Trans-Atlantic Touring Cars, supplied by Masters, to the Classic’s action-packed 2018 race-card after a brief 24-month absence, the Silverstone Classic’s eye-catching display at Saturday’s Regent Street Motor Show (4 November) will include a rare 4.7-litre 1965 Mercury Comet Cyclone racer. ⠀ ⠀ The amazing light blue muscle car will share the central London spotlight with a couple of other outstanding luminaries selected from the unrivalled 1,000+ racing entries that will be competing on the full Grand Prix circuit next July at the Silverstone Classic.
