Bobby Rahal will take the wheel of a Chevron B16 FVC and then a Mini in the Silverstone Classic from July 24-26.

American racing legend Bobby Rahal’s Silverstone Classic debut will see him jump from behind the wheel of a Chevron B16 FVC in the World Sportscar Masters, to the co-driver’s seat of a diminutive Mini in the under two-liter Touring Car race (U2TC).
 
Historic racer Joe Twyman has enlisted Bobby’s help to challenge Joe’s boss and race driver Roger Wills in the U2TC. Rahal and Twyman will field a feisty Mini Cooper S against Wills’ Lotus Cortina; the latter is prepared to the same specification as Sir John Whitmore’s, which took second place in the 1964 European Touring Car Championship.

Bobby Rahal said: 'All the grids at the Silverstone Classic are very competitive: I know that both the Chevron and the Mini will be prepared to the highest standards in their categories but I’m especially looking forward to co-driving Joe Twyman’s fun and agile Mini and helping him leave the others behind!'
