FIA GT1 Silverstone 2011

Free tickets to Silverstone to watch the fire spitting GT cars? Yes please. This was my first visit to 'The home of British Motor Racing' since the new track layout and pit complex was finished earlier in the year. I can safely say the owners have succeeded in dragging the old Silverstone into the 21st Century providing the UK with a truly world class venue to host the likes of Formula One and any other international event.

An under whelming number of spectators did make feel a little soul-less on the Sunday but the number of crashes on track made up for it.

The GT3, GT4 and Lamborghini Trofeo races all supported the GT1 main event.
