The Vintage Sports Car Club will bring the celebrated Bob Gerard Memorial Trophies Meeting to Mallory Park on Saturday 11th August.
The Leicestershire venue is a firm favourite amongst the Club’s Competitors and Spectators, down to its grassroots feeling and superb track that always encourages top quality racing, with the celebrated annual Handicap Race for Pre-1918 Edwardian Cars sure to be the highlight of the day, if not the year.
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.
The day’s title feature will honour local British Racing hero, Bob Gerard who, having competed so successfully at another well-known Midlands circuit for many years, was invited to open the newly constructed Mallory Park Race Circuit in 1956, with one of the most challenging and famous corners in the country still bearing his name today.
With its amphitheatre setting, Mallory Park offers some of the best Spectator viewing in the UK, with many elevated areas from which you can enjoy the action outdoors or from the comfort of your own vehicle. Once again, those arriving in Pre-war cars are encouraged to gather in the dedicated parking area above the Devil’s Elbow parallel to the Start/Finish straight whilst you can also follow the access roads around the edge of the circuit and park up all the way around as far as the Edwina’s Chicane.
As at all VSCC events, there will be free entry to the Competitor Paddock, accessed via the footbridge over the Start/Finish straight; here you will be able to get up close to the competing machinery, speak to the drivers, and explore the day’s Trade Stands and Autojumble.
Tickets will be available on the gate, priced at £15.00, concessions £12 and children under 16 go free.
