OUL­TON PARK: GOLD CUP

Motor Sport News - - Where To Go This Season -

When you think of a clas­sic fes­ti­val of his­toric rac­ing, the mind jumps oh-so-eas­ily to the race­track on the south coast. But don’t for­get about the Gold Cup, a gem in it­self.

Head­lin­ing the event is the Derek Bell Tro­phy, with a se­lec­tion of F5000, For­mula At­lantic and For­mula 2 cars on of­fer. Marc Dwyer (March 742) and Mark Char­teris (Mal­lock Mk20/21) won the two races last year.

Also on of­fer is the Guards Tro­phy for pre-1966 GT cars, plus His­toric Tour­ing Cars, For­mula Fords and a Jaguar Chal­lenge among oth­ers.

The compact pad­dock is a bustling sight with the eclec­tic cars on show.

As a top tip, watch from Cas­cades where you’ll see the cars ride the cam­ber of the left-hand cor­ner.

At the same time you can see the cars emerge over Hill­top and down into the tight and test­ing Knicker­brook chi­cane.
