This year’s Silverstone Classic will be hosting two Mustang-exclusive races as part of the official UK celebration of the pony’s 50th anniversary.
The event hopes to draw around 25 competition-prepped Mustangs from all over the world for the biggest gathering ever on one grid. The first race will feature vehicles conforming to FIA’s Appendix K technical regulations, while the other one will be “a one-off ‘invitation class’ for slightly more modified machines”.

“News about the Mustang’s 50th birthday bash at Silverstone is stirring up interest worldwide. We already have cars being shipped from the States and are also expecting several other significant entries from overseas. To see so many amazing Mustangs in action is going to be a really fitting tribute to such an iconic car,” said Rachel Bailey, events manager at Master Historic Racing.

The 2014 Silverstone Classic is scheduled between July 25-27. The Ford Mustang will celebrate 50 years on April 17.
