Motor Racing Legends – Chairman
Motor Racing Legends can trace its roots back to 1982, and was the original creation of Duncan’s father, Ray Wiltshire – himself eighteen years President of the Bentley Drivers Club, a director of the Royal Automobile Club and still the only ever non-Frenchman on the Board of the A.C.O. (Automobile Club de l’Ouest – organisers of the Le Mans 24 Hours).
It was organising driving events which helped establish Motor Racing Legends. Among them were the ‘Classic Cavalcade’ to Le Mans and the creation of the ‘Le Mans Legends’ support race at the Le Mans 24hr weekend. In 2001 the success of these early events brought Duncan away from a successful Civil Engineering career and into the family business full-time, shortly after which Ray sadly passed away. Duncan, now solely in charge of this fledgling business, used his own racing experience to develop new grids such as the Pre-War Sports Car Series; later the RAC Woodcote Trophy, Stirling Moss Trophy and most recently the Historic Touring Car Challenge. An experienced pre-War Bentley racer himself, it was Duncan’s desire for high quality racing which has driven the business to its current pre-eminent position. Today, Motor Racing Legends enjoys an enviable reputation and a very loyal following of competitors, all of whom enjoy racing on the world’s greatest circuits, amongst other like-minded gentleman drivers.
These days Duncan is a well respected figure head within the historic motor racing scene, sitting on a number of different committees. He also chairs the Judging Panel of the International Historic Motoring Awards and is regularly found hosting after dinner talks or discussion forums.
