With less than three weeks to go until the Royal Automobile Club Historic Tourist Trophy Meeting at Silverstone, anticipation is mounting as entries fill up and the Three-Hour race, in particular, approaches capacity. Anyone wishing to enter who has not confirmed their intentions as yet are urged to do so without delay.
We are thrilled to announce an exciting development ahead of the meeting – Silverstone has agreed to put on a special open pit-lane Test Day on Thursday 22nd October. This unsilenced Test Day, three days ahead of the event, offers you an unmissable opportunity to re-familiarise yourself with the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit and set your car up ahead of the meeting. The day is open to any pre-1990 Historic, closed-wheel racing car and offers 420 minutes of track time through the day.
Places can be booked directly with Silverstone Circuit, at £569 per car. Please call Natalie Hitchcock at Silverstone Circuit to book on – 0344 378 235.
Garages and additional drivers can be booked at an additional cost.
As for the race day, on Sunday 25th October, entries are still being accepted for all races. In the Royal Automobile Club Woodcote Trophy and Stirling Moss one-hour 50s Sports Cars race, Ben Adams will be looking to repeat his win from Thruxton Historic in his Lola Mk 1 and we are anticipating a tough fought Woodcote Trophy with front runners Richard Wilson (Maserati 250S), Steve Brooks (Jaguar D-Type) and Rudiger Friedrichs (Jaguar C-Type) all confirmed.
Spanning three decades, the Historic Touring Car Challenge with Tony Dron Trophy and U2TC with Sixties Touring Car Challenge will be unmissable on the Grand Prix Circuit. Lotus Cortina hot-shot Shaun Balfe will be going head to head with Graham Pattle and a strong entry of Mini Coopers; and at the very front Julian Thomas’s RS500 will face a strong challenge from Steve Dance (RS2600 Capri), Mark Wright (RS500) and Ric Wood (Nissan Skyline).
The three-hour Royal Automobile Historic Tourist Trophy race could prove to be the most memorable historic race of 2020, with a wide ranging grid of 50s Sports Cars, Pre ’63 GT and Pre ’66 GT and Touring Cars in action. The entry list is a ‘whose who’ of motor racing drivers featuring AC Cobra, Porsche 911, Jaguar E-Type, Lotus X1 and Elan 26R, Austin Healey, Ford Mustang, Lotus Cortina and Shelby Daytona Coupes.
