The Silverstone Experience
The project to create an educational centre for British motor sport began in 2012 with the charitable mission of bringing to the public a museum for the exhibition and preservation of artefacts, archives and collections of educational and historic value.
The task of turning a former Second World War RAF hangar into a state-of-the-art 4000m visitor attraction has been filled with challenges. It has taken over seven years and cost in excess of £20million to create a home for the important BRDC archive, and a hub for motor sport fans and families to explore racing at Silverstone.
Take a tour through the past, present and future of British motorsport and the history of the famous racing circuit. The Silverstone Experience is packed with hands-on activities and explanations of the engineering principles that underpin racing cars and motorcycles.
Climb into a replica Grand Prix car, practice your skills as an RAF pilot, try commentating on a race and get up close to winning Formula 1 cars and racing bikes. Go deeper and discover the science behind the sport in the engaging Tech Lab. Add to this a 360-degree cinema experience and outdoor track trail, and you’ve got a day to remember!
