John Retter-Pomeroy Trophy Feb 16 (12 of 24)
Friday 17 February 2017

Get set for a record-breaking VSCC Pomeroy Trophy at Silverstone this weekend

Any fears of a ‘Last Night at Pom’ have been spectacularly quashed with an incredible entry of almost 150 Pre- and Post-war cars lined up to take part in the Club’s celebrated Pomeroy Trophy at Silverstone tomorrow, Saturday 18 February.
An undoubted highlight of the Club’s annual Events Calendar for 65 years, the ‘Pom’ remains one of the most unique and enjoyable competitions in the world of motorsport. Be sure to join us at the home of the British Grand Prix, where all the action will be taking place on the full Historic Grand Prix Circuit for the first time!
 
The only VSCC event open to all Pre- and Post-war cars takes its traditional February slot at Silverstone – always the first event of the year for the famous venue – for one of our oldest and most special traditions.
 
Having passed the morning’s Scrutineering processes, including the famous ‘suitcase’ check – all cars must be able to store two ‘Le Mans’ regulation size suitcases to prove their Grand Touring status – Competitors will face the traditional morning challenges, which include Driving Tests of speed and agility carried out in convoy, before taking to the Grand Prix Circuit for the afternoon’s forty minute Regularity Trials to complete a designated target number of laps.
 
Aided by the event’s complex formula, based on Laurence Pomeroy Junior’s calculations of the efficiency of Grand Prix car engines, we will crown the best GT car by day’s end.
 
We also look forward to welcoming Vauxhall 30-98 ‘E 234’ (affectionately known as ‘Dear Octopus’) winner of the first ever VSCC Pomeroy Trophy in 1952 in the hands of Peter Binns. The car will be on the display in the Paddock close to the BRDC Grandstand courtesy of current custodians, the Spollon Family.
