We're very excited to announce that we're a partner to the Silverstone Classic (26-28 July) this year – full article coming soon.

We'll be taking over the Paddock Cafe to bring the PistonHeads pub, the Pie & Piston, back to life at the heart of the event. On top of our 300 car display area for all eligible pre-79 cars (more on that soon too), we've got space for a rather special 'PistonHeads icon' display.

We need 20 cars to park outside the Pie & Piston that epitomise PistonHeads. Ideally we'd like you to attend for all three days (although you can drive in and out each day) and these applications will be prioritised, but we'll also consider those who might only be able to attend for one or two. Our chosen cars will receive two free tickets for the duration that they're on display plus a PH goodie bag.

So what are we looking for? Ideally we want a set of cars that encapsulate PistonHeads, be it a classic or modern. We're thinking along the lines of (in no particular order):

- TVRs
- Porsche 911 GT3
- Lancia Delta Integrale
- Peugeot 205 GTI
- Ferraris
- Renaultsport Megane R26R/Trophy R
- Volvo 850R
- Audi R8
- BMW M3
- Mercedes-AMG C63
- Mazda MX-5 Mk1
- Lotuses
- Aston Martin Vantage
- Noble M12
- Caterham Seven
- Alpine
- Subaru Impreza
- Mitsubishi Evo
- Land Rover Defender
- Nissan Skyline/GT-R
- McLarens
- Ford Escort
- Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio
- Lamborghinis
- Plus anything else you think we've missed that would be relevant

How to apply

If you're free 26-28 July and have something you think we'd be interested in, please post a photo below with some basic details and the days that you're free to attend. Those with a Readers' Car thread may be favoured, so post a link to your thread if you have one too.

We're aiming to make our selection by the 29th March so those unsuccessful can still make use of the early bird rates. Please note no vehicle movement can take place between 10:00 and 17:00 on all three days, so you'll need to arrive prior to 10:00 and leave after 17:00 to take part.

Not to state the obvious, but how is the coverage on the PH insurance?

If a car is damaged in some way shape or form whilst under the control of PH, is PH picking up the bill?

I have a choice for you that meet your requirements for PHness. biggrin

'71 Lotus Elan Sprint



'99 Caterham Superlight R



Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 (manual, natch)

I can be there all days 26-28 July, though I can only drive one up at a time.

Saying that, I could bring the Defender with either the Elan or Caterham on a trailer.... hehe

Ginetta: Now the longest/oldest continuously British Owned and Made British Sports car.


I'll be there all weekend. She's a G33 RV8 (4ltr). Camping so the car will be on site all day every day.

How about a 1971 Mini Clubman in a very 70s purple. Not perfect or a show car but so much fun smile
