Silverstone Experience

The Silverstone Experience is housed within the only remaining Second World War Wellington Bomber hangar at the entrance to the iconic Silverstone Circuit. This hangar has been refurbished and extended to create a fantastic 4000 m2 space to house this impressive visitor attraction.

Key historic exhibits include Barry Sheene’s 1979 Suzuki RG500, with which he battled against Kenny Roberts at Silverstone in one of the most memorable races of 1970s, and Nigel Mansell’s British Grand Prix-winning Williams FW14B from 1992. More recent vehicles include the RB6 Red Bull with which Mark Webber took the chequered flag in the 2010 British GP and Maverick Viñales’ podium-placed 2017 Yamaha YZR-M1 MotoGP bike.

State of the art interactive displays tell the fascinating stories of human endeavour, great sporting rivalries and engineering innovation. At the end of your visit experience the thrill of speeding around Silverstone alongside your racing heroes in an immersive show ‘The ultimate Lap of Silverstone’ with commentary by Murray Walker.

The Silverstone Experience opens 9th July 2019
