Brad Pitt takes son Knox to the MotoGP British Grand Prix

With a brood of six and a booming career in Hollywood, it can often be hard to spend quality time with one person. Super dad Brad Pitt managed to do just that though when he took seven-year-old son Knox to the MotoGP World Championship at Silverstone on Sunday for some one-on-one time.

The 51-year-old actor kept a low profile by wearing a simple black shirt and cap while his youngest son donned a blue jacket and safety headphones to protect his ears from the noise of the racetrack.

The sweet outing was also partially business for the actor who was there to promote his upcoming documentary Hitting the Apex about the fastest racers in the world.

"First of all, I want to say it's great to be here at Silverstone," Brad said at the event. "We're here for Mark Neal's film, and he's made a great one, another great one. It's exhilarating. It's really moving. It's got a universal mythological tale to it, and we're really proud to get it out there.

"I'm telling you, the hardcore fans are going to love it, the newcomers to the sport are going to love it, and we're really proud."

After the race, Brad took Knox to meet and congratulate the winner, Italy’s Valentino Rossi before posing for some photos.

This isn't the first time the Jolie-Pitt family has been in the UK over the summer. Brad and Angelina had tea with Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, in June where a Kensington Palace spokesperson told HELLO! at the time: "They discussed their shared interest in combatting the illegal wildlife trade."

The couple are also said to be considering a move to the UK so that Angelina can get involved in European politics, and reportedly went to view a seven-bedroom mansion in London during their recent visit to the capital.
