Here’s some trivia from the good old days…

  • The first impromptu race at the Silverstone circuit in 1946 featured only 12 drivers.
  • From 1952 until 2011 Woodcote was Silverstone’s final bend.
  • However, in the first official grand prix on 13th May 1950, Woodcote was the circuit’s first corner and so the first one tackled in the history of F1 racing.
    • After Woodcote, the drivers faced Copse, Maggots, Becketts, Chapel, Stowe and Club before arriving at Abbey.
    • The starting grid and pit lane were situated between Abbey and Woodcote.
  • King George VI attended the inaugural race, the only time a monarch has watched the British grand prix in person.
  • During this first race a well-known jazz musician, Jonny Claes, took part. The Belgian qualified last and he was 18 seconds behind pole position. He finished in 11th place.
  • On July 16th 1955 Stirling Moss became the first home driver to win the British grand prix.
  • In 2009 Silverstone, almost lost hosting privileges for the grand prix. Although a 10-year contract was signed by Donnington, the deal was later discarded.
  • In 2015 formula 1 reached its 65th anniversary.
