Royal Automobile Club Historic Tourist Trophy - A New, Three-Hour Pre-'66 Race

Motor Racing Legends is delighted to announce an entirely new one-day meeting to be held on the full Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit on Sunday October 25th.
The day will feature a one-hour combined race for the Woodcote Trophy & Stirling Moss Trophy, and a one-hour combined race for the Historic Touring Car Challenge & Tony Dron Trophy and Sixties Touring Car Challenge with U2TC. But the highlight of the day will be an entirely new three-hour race for GTs, Touring Cars and Fifties Sports Cars.
To be called the Royal Automobile Club Historic Tourist Trophy Three Hour Race, the race will run three classes: Pre ’66 (GTs and Touring Cars); Pre ’63 GTs; and Pre ’61 Sports Racing Cars. Eligibility covers everything from Cobras and E-types to Falcons and Mustangs; Austin-Healeys and MGBs to Lister Jaguars and Lotus 15s. Entrants will be encouraged to form teams of three cars – one from each class – and the RAC Historic Tourist Trophy will be awarded to the overall winning team.
The meeting will run out of the International Paddock at the Wing, with plenty of space to comply with current regulations. I’m grateful to the Royal Automobile Club for supporting us and to Silverstone for making a date available at such short notice. I am also grateful to DK Engineering for generously agreeing to sponsor the event. It goes without saying that 2020 has not been a great year for Motor Racing Legends, nor for all the preparers and suppliers on whom we all depend. It also won’t surprise you to know that the day comes at a considerable cost, being the full GP Circuit, but we felt we should not miss this opportunity to put something on in the UK in the absence of the great Spa Six Hour meeting.
Whether it be in the Woodcote Trophy, the Stirling Moss Trophy, the Historic Touring Car Challenge, the Tony Dron Trophy, Sixties Touring Car Challenge, U2TC or the Royal Automobile Club Historic Tourist Trophy Three-Hour Race, I urge you to support the day and share the privilege of racing on the Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit. We’re only sorry that there’s not enough room in the day for a Pre-War Sports Car race.
