Paul Stewart attends Silverstone Classic Preview

Posted on the 11th April 2019

Paul Stewart attended yesterday’s event to speak about the appointment of Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK) as the event’s Official Charity Partner. ARUK are generously donating all funds raised at this year’s Silverstone Classic to the Race Against Dementia Fellowships – which are administered through ARUK.

Sir Jackie’s 1971 title-winning Tyrrell-Ford 003 was one of the stand-out highlights on display at the Preview day, while Sir Jackie himself will attend this summer’s Classic, half a century on from his first World Championship triumph and British Grand Prix victory at Silverstone in 1969.

Paul said, “My father launched Race Against Dementia, and I’m immensely grateful to Alzheimer’s Research UK for supporting Race Against Dementia fellowships at this year’s Silverstone Classic. Using our joint experience of motorsport, part of our aim is to introduce into the medical world the urgency, energy and spirit of Formula 1. My father felt there were aspects of the medical world that might be inspired if they understood a little bit more about what happens in Formula 1, and to that end, we have organised visits to racing teams to speak to engineers and see what goes on behind-the-scenes. In this way, the Silverstone Classic is the perfect partner – as an event, it wholeheartedly embraces all the values we are looking to promote.”
