Following on from the Easter opener, it’s another busy Silverstone weekend for the BRSCC, with the Club assisting with organisation of the opening round of the FIA World Endurance Championship, which of course features the 6-hour race for the Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy.

Anthony Davidson won last year’s race for Toyota Racing at the start of what proved to be a very successful season for the Briton. In last April’s race Anthony was aided and abetted by team-matesSebastien Buemi and Nicolas Lapierre. Buemi is again part of the Toyota line-up for 2015 and is joined by former Williams F1 driver Kazuki Nakajima.

The action is already underway on the Grand Prix Circuit with free practice this morning for the FIA F3 European Championship and ELMS competitors, before the WEC teams go out for a 90 minute session before lunch. You can see the full timetable for the weekend at 6-hours of Silverstone.
