Fancy dress

This is your chance to win Grid Passes, one of the most exclusive prizes we have ever given away! On Friday 4 July it is Vintage Dress Friday! We would like you to come to the circuit dressed up in attire from the 40’s to the 80’s. 20 winners will be chosen by us and they will have access to the backstage area of the main stage for a drinks reception from 5pm. From these 20, five finalists will be chosen (one from each decade) to go through to the final judging for an overall winner. The winner will receive 2 Grid Passes for Race Day wearing their fancy dress!

How to enter

To enter you must already have tickets for the event, take a photo in your 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s or 80s outfit and post it to Twitter or Instagram with #Silverstone50 tag from 18th June until 12pm on Friday 4th July. We will pick the winners and contact them by 3:30pm on Friday of the event to go onto final judging! While fans can still vote for the photos, votes will not count as we will be choosing the 20 winners to go onto final judging!
