Classic car fans are now given the opportunity to help decide the best British sportscar of all time via an online poll the official website of the Silverstone Classic. They can decide from a shortlist of 15 iconic cars covering all major British brands. Included on the list is the Jaguar E-Type and its XK120 predecessor.

Triumph is the brand with the most finalists on the list, with TR3, TR6 and Spitfire models all making the last 15. Austin Healy (‘Frogeye’ Sprite and 3000), Lotus (Seven and Elan) and MG (MGA and MGB) join Jaguar with two models on the final roster, which is completed with the AC Cobra, Aston Martin DB5, Morgan and TVR Griffith.

To vote for your own favorite, you have to visit the following link and click on the appropriate box under your particular choice – all entrants being restricted to one vote. The poll closes on June 30 and the result will be announced on July 7 with the overall winner being officially crowned during this year’s Silverstone Classic. 10 winning votes drawn at random will each receive a pair of weekend tickets to the event.

This summer’s three-day event will see more than 120 UK car clubs displaying in excess of 7,000 cars including large numbers of those shortlisted on-line for the coveted ‘Best British Sportscar’ title.

“Britain is famous for its sportscars but no one ever agrees which one is the best. That’s a long-running debate we now want to put to rest and where better to settle the result than at the Silverstone Classic where so many fine examples of these much-loved models will be on show?”
said Event Director, Nick Wigley.
