The British event, round four of the World RX championship, is the centrepiece of the SpeedMachine Festival at Silverstone from May 25-26. The multi-faceted SpeedMachine brings together an array of motorsport activity, street food and entertainment.
SpeedMachine returns to Silverstone following its successful debut on the FIA World Rallycross Championship calendar last year.

He is the top-selling Jamaican artist of all time in the United States with a unique blend of dancehall reggae, rap, and hip hop. His appearance at SpeedMachine is part of a 2019 UK tour.
In addition to rallycross, there will be activities across the weekend from virtual eSports and RC racing.
“To have someone of the calibre of Sean Paul as the headline performer for Saturday night at Silverstone underlines SpeedMachine’s status as a must-visit festival of motor racing and entertainment,” said Paul Bellamy, Senior Vice President of IMG Motorsports, the promoter of the FIA World Rally Cross Championship, presented by Monster Energy.
“SpeedMachine brings together a heady mix of world-class rallycross and music artists, a non-stop programme of racing and interactivity, along with the best in British street food.”
