EVENT INFORMATION

Silverstone Spring Start Race Meeting

18 Apr 2015

Silverstone, Northamptonshire

Event main image
Returning to a one-day format for 2015, the day will include our traditional VSCC sets in the form of our illustrious GP Itala Trophy Races, catering for our core Competitors of Vintage, PVT and Historic Racing and Sports-Cars. There is sure to be machinery on display to satisfy all interests, whilst our competing Members will have a wide choice of races to exercise their various cars on the day.

The GP Itala Trophies feature a number of the Club’s most prominent silverware, including the collection’s namesake GP Itala Trophy for Vintage Racing Cars; the Amschel Rothschild and Patrick Lindsay Memorial Trophies Race will bring together the very best Grand Prix Cars of the immediate Pre- and Post-war eras and, with representatives from exalted names as ERA, Bugatti, Lotus, Connaught, Maserati, Cooper Bristol, Ferrari and many more expected, this is one of the most elite grids you are likely to see anywhere. Our Fox & Nicholl Trophy Race is sure to be a highlight with a guaranteed full grid of genuine Pre-war Sports-Cars whilst we also host the Club’s traditional Regularity Trial, the ideal introductory event for those new to circuit racing.

The day will be complemented by Invited grids from FISCAR, whose Post-war Sports-Cars from manufacturers such as HWM, Jaguar and Aston Martin return to celebrate the wonderful career of George Abecassis, and a race for 1950s Sports Racing Cars, who never fail to put on an entertaining show in their powerful machines.

We are also delighted to announce our new venture of Premier Cru Racing, a grid of original Pre-1941 Racing Cars from the likes of ERA, Alta, Bugatti and Maserati, a showcase for the pioneering years of Grand Prix Racing of the 1920s and 30s. The series has enjoyed a number of fantastic outings over the last couple of seasons at Silverstone and at Snetterton and we now look to develop this grid into a headline fixture of VSCC Racing and a leading complement to our existing ‘sets’. In addition to Silverstone, we will also host rounds at Oulton Park (18 July) and Snetterton (27 September) in 2015.

As ever, Pre-war fans will also enjoy full grids competing in the ever-popular All-Comers Pre-war Handicap and Scratch short formats.

Aside from the action on track, ‘Spring Start’ will again offer the Spectator all that is great about attending a VSCC Race Meeting, with free access to the paddock, where you can get up-close to the cars and drivers, a mouth-watering display from our Principal Associates Bonhams, onsite catering facilities and a busy Trade Village – whether looking for that vital car part for your own restoration or finding a gift for a Motorsport enthusiast, you are sure to be able to find something. Look out for more details and ticket information very soon.
