Celebrating the compelling heritage of Oulton Park circuit, the long-established Oulton Park Gold Cup historic race meeting has long been a highlight of the north-west circuit’s annual fixtures. Always a focal point for racers, the event has recently enjoyed a resurgence with a new mid-summer date and an expansion of the on-track content.
Motor Racing Legends is privileged to have been included on the programme of this year’s event that featuring no less than eighteen races! There is a tremendous opportunity for Motor Racing Legend’s competitors to join this superb weekend in the tranquil parkland setting of Oulton Park in our two races. The timetable has recently been released, click below to view.
First off, on Saturday 29th July, the Motor Racing Legends Historic Touring Car Trophy and Tony Dron Trophy with Sixties Touring Car Challenge with U2TC 50-minute race encompasses three decades of Touring Cars. Sixties Touring Car Challenge and U2TC cars including Lotus Cortinas, Mini Cooper and Alfa Romeo GTA will have a split start from the Historic Touring Car Trophy and Tony Dron Trophy grid, which will bring flame spitting Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500s, BMW E36 M3s and Nissan Skylines. Rover SD1s, Mark Smith will be hoping to emulate his victory at the recent Donington Historic Festival whilst the Ric Wood Motorsport team enjoy a weekend’s racing close to their Stockport HQ.
Ford Capris and Rover SD1s will be battling for Tony Dron Trophy honours in a busy weekend for Group 1 and 1 and a half cars with two opportunities to race over the weekend.
The Royal Automobile Club Woodcote Trophy and Stirling Moss Trophy allows pre-1956 sports cars and pre-1961 sports racing cars a showcase on the 2.69 mile circuit. With qualifying late on Saturday afternoon and a 50 minute race on the afternoon of Sunday 30th July the relaxed schedule gives opportunity to fully enjoy the meeting and Cheshire hospitality.
Statuesque Jaguar D-types dominated the first edition of the Royal Automobile Club Woodcote Trophy at the Donington Historic Festival just a few weeks ago, the family machine of brothers Gary and John Pearson coming out on-top ahead of Richard Wilson’s glorious Maserati 250S. At Oulton Park Gold Cup Richard switches to his Lotus XV in the Stirling Moss Trophy. What an opportunity to celebrate the late Sir Stirling who won the Gold Cup on five occasions in the Fifties and early Sixties, and also raced his OSCA in the historic Gold Cup with us in more recent years.
Lister Knobblyies feature in the line-up and will have a straight line speed advantage against the host of Lotus XI and XVs which will be nimble through the corners.
