Michelin-starred chef Heston Blumenthal will be one of the many stars taking part in a celebrity race at Silverstone in July.

Blumenthal will be joined by motorbike enthusiast Charley Boorman, Strictly Come Dancing star Brendan Cole, former football star Luther Blissett and Status Quo rocker Rick Parfitt.

The celebs will be driving 130mph Morgan V6 Roadster sports cars around the famous Northamptonshire grand prix circuit.

Blumenthal had his first go at the event last year and really enjoyed it, although he is hoping to get a better result this time around.

"My bravery rather outweighed my ability and I ended up hitting a kerb and puncturing the tyre so that was the end of my race. This year I’m determined to make it to the chequered flag in one piece," he said.

The celebrity race kicks of the three-day Silverstone Classic, which promises exciting racing and entertainment for all the family.
