The Britcar 24 Hours at Silverstone is the UK’s premier endurance challenge and, thanks to organisers Britcar, you can win one of five pairs of tickets to the 2012 event (September 21-23).

Each year the Britcar 24 Hours attracts an eclectic mix of regulars from the Britcar MSA British Endurance Championship and Britcar Production Cup, like the Intersport BMW, or Topcats Racing Marcos Mantis – the two series combined into a single grid for the weekend on the Silverstone Grand Prix track.

The opportunity also attracts teams and drivers from outside of the normal Britcar paddock, with names from GT Cup, the Avon Tyres British GT Championship and club racing series from around the country brought to Silverstone by the twice-around-the-clock event. Furthermore the race attracts some of the top teams from Europe, with ARC Bratislava, JetAlliance Racing and Duller Motorsport Silverstone visitors in the short seven year history of the event.

Racing in multiple classes spectators are treated to everything from GT2 spec Moslers and Ferraris to production based SEATs, BMWs and Hondas.

Last year, in a race of attrition amongst the top team, the Eclipse Motorsport team of Sean McInerney, Michael McInerney and Phil Keen were comfortable winners, completing 573 laps in a race run in front of an impressive crowd brought out by startling hot temperatures for early October and the only chance to see racing through the night at Silverstone during the year.

To have a chance to be at this year’s Britcar 24 Hours just answer this simple question:

Where will the 2012 Britcar 24 event be held?
