Entries are now open for the 2014 Pomeroy Trophy

Opening the Club’s 2014 Race and Speed Season in our 80th Anniversary year will be our legendary Pomeroy Memorial Trophy at Silverstone, taking place on Saturday 22 February. Entries are now open so don’t delay and submit your entry now for this most celebrated ‘must-do’ VSCC event.
The concept was first mooted by John Rowley in 1947, but because of petrol rationing it did not actually take place until 22nd March 1952. It was won by Peter Binns in a Vauxhall 30/98. Although not Laurence Pomeroy's idea, it was his formula to calculate the efficiency of GP car engines that was used as the basis for the calculations and he presented the Trophy. An interesting aside is that until the event could take place, the trophy was awarded for 'Outstanding Service to the Club' and was first won by Cecil 'Sam' Clutton in 1948.

The ‘Pom’, as it is affectionately known in VSCC circles, is a truly unique event within the motorsport world, in which the speed, agility and braking ability of Pre-war and Post-war machines are pitted against each other. Over the course of the day, competitors will take part in handling, acceleration and braking tests, followed by a High Speed Regularity Time Trial (not to forget a test to make sure their car can carry two ‘standard’ VSCC size suitcases!) In addition to the circuit based tests, all cars are required to be road legal and so competitors are required to pass through a filter point in order to confirm that they have driven the cars to the circuit. The car which wins the ‘Pom’ is always a true all-rounder driven by a great driver, so why not join us and see how you and your favourite car fair?

The event comprises one class and is open to road equipped cars of any age, including tax, MOT (if required for age of car), road legal tyres, exhaust, lights etc, with a capacity of greater than 1949cc (or 1495cc if super-/turbocharged) or greater than 1495cc for Pre-war Cars. Although not strictly a Race, competitors must hold a 2014 MSA Race Licence (minimum National B) or FIA ASN equivalent as the afternoon’s regularity sessions are run under race conditions and all entrants must be members of the VSCC.
 
Entry Fees:         £85 (Pre-war Cars)           £185 (Post-war Cars)

½ Price for those Under 30 years old on 1 January 2014.

Closing Date for Entries: 10 February
