Kirkby Mallory, Leicestershire LE9 7QE

Event main image
We are delighted to once again be returning to Mallory Park in 2017 for our hallowed Bob Gerard Memorial Trophies. The Leicestershire venue is a firm favourite within the VSCC Race calendar, down to its grass roots feeling and superb corners that encourage top quality racing, with some exciting additions to the Club’s traditional programme of races, with our celebrated Edwardian Race sure to be the highlight of the day.
 
The unique event – the only one of its kind in the world – regularly attracts a capacity grid of international Pre-1918 machinery, with almost all taking part over 100 years old. In addition to the track action, Club Principal Associates, Bonhams, will also be supporting the day with an impressive period display in the Paddock, with all the competing cars on show alongside other fine examples from this pioneering era of motor racing.
