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.
