This weekend Silverstone will hold the UK’s biggest ever motor race.

Some 100 Citroen C1 race cars will race on Silverstone’s full GP circuit for 24 hours from Saturday at 5:30pm.

The C1 Racing Club, which races near-standard 3dr, 1.0-litre C1s, has proved so popular as an entry-level motorsport - it’s possible to build a race car from around £3000 - that its series of endurance and 24h races races are routinely oversubscribed, so has obtained permission from Motorsport UK for a bumper entry list.

The race will be streamed live, and available to watch here:

Autocar’s editor-at-large Matt Prior will be racing in car number 303 for a story that’ll be in the magazine and online later. For updates through the race, you can follow Matt and Autocar’s social feeds.

Our Verdict

Citroen C1

More power and new style improves the Citroen C1's performance and kerb appeal, but it's still not up there with the VW Up, Seat Mii, Skoda Citygo and our other favourite city cars
