FORMULA 1 ROLEX BRITISH GRAND PRIX
Silverstone, Northamptonshire (part) and Buckinghamshire (part), United Kingdom
7 – 9 July 2023;
Like so many of England’s racing circuits, Silverstone started life as an aerodrome. When the Second World War ended in 1945, England’s other two circuits, Donington Park and the legendary Brooklands, had fallen into disrepair. And so it was that the outer taxiways and interconnecting runways of Silverstone became adopted by the Royal Automobile Club as the home for the British Grand Prix in 1948.

Horse Racing Events & Days Out at Ascot Racecourse
The King George Weekend
29 July, 2023
Ascot Racecourse, Ascot, England
With the exception of Royal Ascot, King George weekend is the most important, historic and glamorous racing meeting on Ascot’s calendar.
It’s Britain’s most prestigious open-age flat race, and its roll of honour features some of the most highly-acclaimed horses of the sport’s recent history. The 1975 running, which involved a hard-fought battle to the finish between Grundy and Bustino, is frequently described as the “race of the century”.
Many of its winners subsequently compete in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, and a number go on to have a successful career at stud. The race is often informally referred to as the “King George”.
FORMULA 1 JOHNNIE WALKER BELGIAN GRAND PRIX
Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps
30 July, 2023
Belgium’s Spa-Francorchamps circuit is among the most historic on the Formula One calendar, having hosted a (non- championship) Grand Prix as long ago as 1924, and remains one of the most popular venues with drivers and fans alike.
More than twenty years on Spa remains the longest circuit on the calendar. The weather is still notoriously changeable (it can often be simultaneously raining on one part of the track and dry on another) and Eau Rouge, with its high speed and sudden elevation change, maintains its reputation as one of Formula One racing’s most technically demanding corners.
Such is the challenge of Spa that only the truly great drivers can really claim to have mastered it. In fact just six men have won the race more than twice – Juan Manuel Fangio (three times), Damon Hill (three times), Kimi Raikkonen (four times), Jim Clark (four times), Ayrton Senna (five times) and Michael Schumacher (six times).
