Branded Sky - Silverstone Classic, Media and Test Day - 4 May 2011

Branded Sky delivered an impressive tethered display of hot air balloons at The Silverstone Classic Media and Test day today to promote the ‘Worlds Biggest Classic Motor Racing Festival’.  This is a fabulous 3 day weekend of ‘Flat Out Fun for all the Family’ now celebrating its 21st birthday. While it is indisputably the world’s biggest classic racing festival, the non-stop action on the fabulous Silverstone Grand Prix circuit is only part of the story of the Silverstone Classic (22-24 July).

In the skies above Silverstone, a fantastic Aerial Display will wow visitors of any age. Paying tribute to Silverstone’s heritage as a Second World War airfield, the 70th anniversary of the Spitfire will be an absolute highlight.

Saturday lunchtime will feature a stunning aerobatic display from The Blades, all former Red Arrows pilots, flying the ultimate in high-performance piston aircraft, while Sunday lunchtime will see the most famous of all Spitfires, ‘MH434’,

performing a beautiful display

alongside the P-51D Mustang

‘Ferocious Frankie’.

With a spectacular display from

The Parachute Regiment Freefall

Team – The Red Devils on each

day of the weekend, along with

hot air balloon displays planned

on each day (subject to weather

conditions), the aerial action will

thrill the entire family. For those

with energy to spare, an Army

Assault Course will provide an

exciting challenge and there’s

also a chance try your racing

skills on a 400-metre kart track.

Add in street car shootouts,

a period funfair, demonstrations

from the De Dion Bouton Club

and, for the first time, a Steam

Traction Rally and the grand

scale of the entertainment

on offer is clear to see.

The Silverstone Classic is the

place to be on July 22-24 this

year and is expected to attract

over 80,000 attendees.
