The SpeedMachine Festival will pay tribute to one of Formula One’s most prestigious teams, ROKiT Williams Racing, with an off-track display at Silverstone from May 25-26.
In a homage to the iconic British outfit, founded by Sir Frank Williams, and a nod to the present, the Williams FW14B made famous by Nigel Mansell, will share the spotlight with an FW42 show car similar to that campaigned by George Russell and Robert Kubica in 2019.
The two cars will be on display in the Formula One international pit straight complex and housed in a re-creation of a contemporary and historic pit garage.
Adding a further dash of quintessential Britishness to the event, Prodrive will bring a collection of 10 cars from their racing stable.
Among them will be the 1984 Rothmans Porsche Rally Team 911 SC RS and the Subaru Impreza which took Colin McRae and Richards Burns to FIA World Rally Championships.
Representing touring cars is a 2000 Ford Mondeo Super Touring car and the Ford Performance Racing Falcon BA from Australian V8 Supercars.
In addition there is the stunning 2018 Aston Martin Vantage GTE which currently competes in the FIA World Endurance Championship.
“We are delighted that the ROKiT Williams Racing Formula One team will have a presence at SpeedMachine and provide a trip down memory lane for motorsport fans,” Torben Olsen, the Managing Director of World RX for IMG, the series promoter, said.
“Together with the Prodrive exhibition, we will have the very best of world-renowned British motorsport heritage on display along with plenty of other activities for SpeedMachine fans.”
The Dayinsure World RX of Great Britain, the UK leg of the FIA World Rally Cross Championship, presented by Monster Energy is the racing centrepiece of the SpeedMachine Festival. The British event is round four of the 2019 championship.
