Motorcycle GP Legends To Appear at the Silverstone Classic
Fans old and new relish at being able to rub shoulders with the stars of yesteryear
GP Legends continues to grow, its appeal reaching fans of two wheel motorcycle sport old and new.
Now in its fourth year, WGPBL is set to appear at the Silverstone Classic over the weekend of 26-28th July, 2019, with at least ten motorcycle road racing legends stars taking to the track both Saturday & Sunday.
Already confirmed are former World Champions Wayne Gardner, Freddie Spencer & Raymond Roche!
The Silverstone Classic is a fantastic event that brings together two and four wheeled stars of yesteryear in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. Weekend activities for WGPBLegends include on track high speed demonstrations, classic bikes including some famous 500cc two-strokes, meet & greet sessions, autograph signings plus the chance for fans and media alike to hear memories and stories from the riders in a range of on stage interviews.
Throw into the mix MotoWorld, a dedicated bike zone which will include WGPBL, the Dirt Quake exhibit, Manufacturer & trade exhibitors, a café to keep you refreshed throughout the event, plus much more to be announced in the coming weeks and we are sure agree that the iconic Silverstone Circuit is the place to be at the end of July!
The Silverstone Classic is a unique event, providing a weekend for motorsport enthusiasts to come together and marvel at the cars and in recent years the bikes and riders, that took part in what many regard as the golden age of two and four wheeled sport. Free access to the Paddocks, over 10,000 historic racing machines, and the chance to be part of this special event are just the tip of the iceberg. There’s plenty of entertainment to enjoy too, including live music on both Friday and Saturday evening, vintage funfair rides, air displays, a Shopping Village… all included in the ticket price. It’s an event for the whole family.
