2013 Set To Be A ‘Classic’ Christmas

1 Mins read

Christmas 2013 is now sure to be a ‘Classic’ Christmas after confirmation that ITV4 will be screening highlights of the 2013 Silverstone Classic on Christmas morning.

The dedicated one hour programme will air at 9:05am, offering the rare opportunity to gift tickets for the 2014 event while watching highlights of this year’s record breaking weekend.

“It will really bring Christmas presents to life,” said Event Director, Nick Wigley. “Can you imagine the added thrill of waking up on Christmas morning, receiving Silverstone Classic tickets and then fully appreciating what a special treat is in store by switching on the television. The prospect is almost too good to be true!”

The decision to repeat the Silverstone Classic highlights comes after the original four broadcasts boasted strong viewing figures immediately after the summer’s event. Over one million viewers have taken in the sights and sounds of the 2013 event, featuring the intense on-track action, stunning classic car displays and interviews with motor racing royalty such as Sir Jackie Stewart, Derek Bell MBE and Murray Walker OBE.

In addition to the Christmas Day highlights package, a bespoke Silverstone Classic gift certificate can be downloaded from the Silverstone Classic website, and any tickets purchased as Christmas gifts will be able to utilise the ‘early-bird’ savings on offer for those booking tickets well in advance.

Tickets can still be booked over the Christmas period through the on-line box office at www.silverstoneclassic.com, which can even be purchased on Christmas Day for those tempted by what they have seen on their televisions.
