One of the most important parts of the Silverstone Experience will be the oral histories they are striving to collect from a wide range of people who are connected to the circuit. The oral histories aim to explore and tell the story of the passionate fans, volunteers and employees of the circuit. Exploring why it is they love Silverstone, what their most memorable occasions there have been and any other stories they wish to share. As well as gathering the memories from the big names within motorsport they are aiming to tell the complete history of Silverstone from its beginning as a Benedictine monastery through to its current status as the home of the British Grand Prix. This project will allow the individual stories to be told alongside. They will be documenting and archiving the oral histories collected to ensure that the recordings will be preserved and made accessible for interpretation, enjoyment and learning by current and future generations.
