The 2008 British Grand Prix will long be remembered as a classic Formula One encounter. As the rain battered the Silverstone circuit, Lewis Hamilton put in one of the performances of his career to stand head and shoulders above his rivals and secure a popular home victory. On a day in which even the most experienced Formula One drivers struggled to keep their cars on track, Hamilton stole the show.

This season's Grand Prix is expected to see record breaking crowds assemble in Northamptonshire to welcome home the reigning world champion, and the youngest in the sport's history, Britain's Lewis Hamilton. The entire race weekend looks certain to buzz with an enormous party spirit as we celebrate a new British hero and cheer him on to each passing lap.

The best teams and drivers in single-seater motor racing have a new set of regulations to contend with in 2009, so we can expect a slightly different order of merit to that which we've become used to of late. With these new regulations designed to increase the racing spectacle even higher from the past two classic seasons, which have thrown up some real surprises and incredible races, expect fireworks on this most challenging of tracks.

But of course there's not only the Formula One, as the GP2 support category gives fans a chance to see the next generation of stars before they jump to the big time. Add to that the Porsche SuperCup, a host of other support events and Silverstone's famous Grand Prix Party and there's little surprise that this is the hottest ticket of the year.
