Silverstone Classic to raise funds for RAD Fellowships

Posted on the 15th March 2019

Today Silverstone Classic has announced that Alzheimer’s Research UK has been appointed as the Official Charity Partner to the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival for the next three years.

All funds raised by the charity at this summer’s Classic will go directly to Race Against Dementia Fellowships, which are administered by Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Activities planned by Alzheimer’s Research UK and Race Against Dementia at the next three Classics will be focused around raising awareness of dementia, raising funds to support vital research and encouraging more volunteers to get involved with supporting the charity.

Sir Jackie Stewart will also be attending the 2019 Classic, July 26-28, to mark the 50th anniversary of the first of his three World Championship titles and the first of his two stirring British Grand Prix victories in 1969 and 1971, both of which came at Silverstone.

Reflecting on the partnership with Silverstone Classic, Sir Jackie said: “Race Against Dementia is very grateful and proud to be working with Alzheimer’s Research UK at one of Britain’s most important motor racing events, with some of the finest cars of past years. Silverstone is Britain’s most prestigious motorsport circuit and it is a great privilege for me to have won at Silverstone in several different categories of the sport and to celebrate those victories at this Classic event.”

Visitors to the 2019 Classic will get their first opportunity to donate to Alzheimer’s Research UK when buying their tickets online or, alternatively, by using a dedicated fundraising link: http://support.alzheimersresearchuk.org/event/silverstone-classic.

Those buying their tickets before the end of March can also take advantage of an Early Bird initiative offering significant savings.

Full details of all tickets (which must be purchased in advance) – as well as hospitality packages and weekend festival camping – can be found on the www.silverstoneclassic.com website.
