The Royal Automobile Club Woodcote Trophy is open to original sports cars and selected sports racers from post-war up-to and including December 1955 and all cars must conform strictly to period specification.
The Woodcote Trophy was created in 2006 when the Royal Automobile Club and Motor Racing Legends got together to launch a race series for genuine, pre-1956 sports-racers. Twelve years on this highly competitive race series is still going strong and has evolved into a highly competitive grid that is all about taking the flag, there is however an expectation that driving standards remain ‘gentlemanly’ as well as competitive.
There’s always fierce competition simply to get a place on the grid at the Silverstone Classic, and these are serious racing cars; which also happen to be remarkably beautiful.
Cars you could expect to see racing out on track included: Aston Martin DB5, Austin Healey, Cooper Bristol, Cooper Jaguar, Frazer Nash Le Mans and Mille Miglia, Jaguar D- and C-type, XK120 and 140, and Maserati 300.
