Classic Motorsport for all at Race Retro 2015

Race Retro 2015 - Lancia Stratos

Yet again, an international crowd of classic motorsport fans descended on the midlands this weekend (20-21 Feb) for Race Retro – an all-round celebration of all forms of motorsport from years gone by.

From classic motorcycles to classic Group B rally cars, Race Retro also included a few special celebrations, such as the past vehicles of the British Motor Corporation and British Leyland’s competition department (below).

Alongside the cars on display were a tempting selection of classics for sale through Silverstone Auctions (below), including classic Ford Escorts, AC Cobras, Porsche 991s, Jaguars and even a few Ferraris.
