With the Regulations and Entry Forms published and entries flowing in, we can now confirm the details of the forthcoming season for both the Stirling Moss Trophy and the Royal Automobile Club Woodcote Trophy.
The Lister Motor Company to Sponsor the Stirling Moss Trophy
Firstly, we are delighted to announce that the Lister Motor Company has agreed to become the title sponsor for the Stirling Moss Trophy from this season. CEO Lawrence Whitaker has been a long-time supporter of Motor Racing Legends through the annual Brian Lister Trophy, but from now on the Lister Motor Company will be taking on a much more active role as title sponsor for the series.
The Royal Automobile Club Woodcote Trophy and EFG Private Bank
Not to be outdone, our fabulous relationship with EFG continues for a ninth successive year. We are currently planning with EFG for a number of entertaining activities away from the race tracks later this year (and yes, it is possible to have fun away from the race track!) We’ll be sharing this news with you in the coming weeks.
Pre-Season Testing Opportunities
There are a couple of pre-season testing opportunities to tell you about. If you’re planning to race at the Silverstone Classic, the organisers are offering a free test opportunity at their Media Day on Wednesday April 10th. Places are limited but you can apply for a place here.
The HGPCA have also kindly offered all our 50s Sports Car competitors the chance to join them on their test day at Silverstone on Friday 12th April. Click here for further details.
