Stirling Moss Trophy
Skip to: main navigation | main content | sitemap | accessibility page
The series, for ‘proper’ sports-racing cars built before 1961, was launched in 2010 to offer longer two-driver races and an authentic racing experience true to the ’50s era. Evolved from the former long-running BRDC Historic Sports Car Championship, participants are restricted to cars running to genuine period specification, with an expectation of driving standards that are ‘gentlemanly’ as well as competitive. The grid has been hugely popular since the outset, and continues to be so year on year. There was no surprise then, when the series was voted winner of ‘Race Series of the Year’ at the International Historic Motoring Awards at the end of 2014. Sir Stirling Moss not only honourably lends his name to the series but in 2011 presented the overall winners of the series with the actual trophy he won at the 1955 British Grand Prix – his first ever Grand Prix victory. Now that really is something worth racing for!
Rules for the Stirling Moss Trophy state that all cars must conform strictly to period specification. Races are traditionally an hour long, with a special two-hour race to finish the season in the Algarve. All races are for one or two driver entries, and feature a compulsory pit stop. We would recommend early registration to guarantee your place on this much coveted gentleman’s racing grid.
