The Silverstone Classic bills itself as "the world’s biggest classic racing festival." With more than 7,000 cars spanning the history of motorsports, we're not about to argue.

Anything and everything worth seeing or driving descended on Britain's storied Silverstone circuit on July 22 for a glorious weekend of racing. These cars aren't trailer queens. They're driven, and often driven hard. More than 1,000 competed in the weekend's racing as everything from Bugattis to McLarens lapped the famous track.
