For the first-time ever, all seven of Lewis Hamilton’s title-winning cars will be on display together, as they’ll be showcased at this year’s Silverstone Classic.

The historic event which is being held this year on 26-28 August, will feature a showcase of all seven cars, which have never been seen together before. This has only been made possible thanks to the Mercedes Petronas Formula One Team and the McLaren F1 Team giving permission for the showcase to happen.

To date, Hamilton has won the British Grand Prix at the Silverstone International Circuit a record-breaking eight times, making Silverstone the perfect place to showcase his title-winning machinery.

The seven-time World Champion is debated to be the ‘Greatest of All Time’. He remains tied with Michael Schumacher on seven titles , but is now miles clear in every other record. Hamilton has claimed to date the most Formula 1 wins (103), most pole positions (103) and most podium finishes (183).

His seven special cars will be exhibited in a new feature area at the Classic, which will be situated right at the heart of the August bank holiday event.

Nick Wigley, CEO of The Classic promoter Goose Live Events, is honoured to have all seven cars feature at the event in what he calls a “privilege”.

“It’s a real privilege for us to have all seven of Lewis’ title winners on show at The Classic this summer. Lewis is already a legend and his incredible successes will forever be celebrated as a major milestone in motor sport history. This very special display will also be another of the standout highlights under this year’s ‘Best of British’ banner at The Classic.”

All tickets for the Silverstone Classic will include access to the Lewis Hamilton exhibition, as well as access to the racing paddocks, open trackside grandstand seating, all three nights of live music, the newly-announced Foodie Fest plus the vast majority of the fabulous family entertainment and attractions on offer. The 2022 Silverstone Classic is an event not to be missed!
