Last chance to book tickets for the biggest-ever Gold Cup

Tuesday, August 24 2010

This Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday (29/30 August) Oulton Park hosts the Historic Gold Cup event - and the line up is the biggest in its illustrious history! You can still save up to £15 on admission by booking your tickets before midday today (Wednesday).

More than 480 vehicles and 500 drivers have been confirmed by race organisers the HSCC, including Sir Stirling Moss, who is set to compete in the "Sir Stirling Moss Trophy" race exactly 50 years after winning the 1960 Gold Cup in a Lotus 18. The 80-year-old will be piloting an Osca FS372 alongside Ian Nuthall.

Moss will also be demonstrating the unique Ferguson P99 that he steered to victory at the event in 1961, when he became the only driver to win a Formula One race in a four wheel drive car.

The Gold Cup features historic Formula Two and Formula 5000 single seaters in the Derek Bell Trophy, along with a bumper grid of 35 classic Formula Fords. Other racing highlights include the Guards Trophy for pre-1966 GT and Sports Racing Cars, Historic Formula Junior and Classic Touring Cars.

In addition to a fabulous two-day programme of circuit racing, the Oulton Park Gold Cup will feature a number of unique demonstrations including a Silk Cut Group C Jaguar Le Mans car and a 3.5 litre R90 Nissan, steered to pole position by Mark Blundell at the 1990 Le Mans 24 Hour race.

There will also be a special parade to celebrate 30 years of the Audi Quattro, plus several displays from a collection of mind-blowing Group B rally cars.

Tickets for the Oulton Park Gold Cup on 29/30 August are available from £17 for adults, with free entry for children aged 12 and under. For more information call 0870 950 9000 or click on the link beliow.
