Aston Martin Works was one of the stars of the show at this year’s 25th anniversary Silverstone Classic.
In its 60th year, the Newport Pagnell-based business once again attended the world’s biggest historic motor racing festival with a display comprising a selection of modern and heritage Aston Martin sports cars to celebrate its diamond jubilee.
Among the models on show at the world-famous Northamptonshire race circuit was a Newport Pagnell-built DB4 Series 5 Vantage, alongside other heritage and modern sports cars including a muscular V12 Vantage S and a luxurious Rapide S.
The Silverstone Classic three-day celebration of heritage racing covered the full spectrum of motor sport history and also included live music from legendary rockers Status Quo, aerial displays, a giant 40-metre wheel and vintage fun fair, and huge shopping village.
On Saturday, the on-track thrills and spills were enjoyed by a record single-day crowd which also witnessed Aston Martin Works’ 60th anniversary celebration parade lap featuring around 20 customer cars from across the decades.
Commenting on the successful event Aston Martin Works Commercial Director Paul Spires said: “The Silverstone Classic is a world-famous heritage motorsport meeting, and we are very pleased to have once again played our part in it this year.
“Since 2015 marks the 60th anniversary of Aston Martin Works at Newport Pagnell, as well as the 25th anniversary of the Silverstone event, it seemed particularly apt that we should be able to celebrate our six decades with this great parade of Aston Martin sports cars.”
