Track days boom after Silverstone Grand Prix double header, with drifting racing ahead

A recent bonanza of British motorsport has led to a surge track day bookings, as enthusiasts look to emulate their racing heroes with a high octane racing experience.

And it’s not just race cars and single seaters that petrolheads covet, the art of drifting has also grown in popularity at Silverstone, reports leading driving experience provider Trackdays.

Drifting now accounts for more than one-in-six bookings at the iconic venue. 

Think of Silverstone and you think of super fast straights and sweeping bends, says Dan Jones, Track Days operations manager. “However, an increasing number of people would prefer to learn, and test, their drifting skills on a purpose built track.”

Trackdays reports that race car and single seater bookings rose by 10 per cent immediately following the two recent Grand Prix at the world famous Northamptonshire circuit. It seems fans don’t just want to watch the action on TV, but actually experience it first hand on the famous Stowe Circuit.

“The eyes of the motorsport world have recently been on Silverstone following two, unprecedented, quickfire Grand Prix,” adds Jones “and we’ve seen an immediate increase in bookings. It would indicate that Brits fancy themselves as the next world champion, standing on top of the podium, spraying champagne.”
