Oulton Park in the late 1960s was one of the last circuits to play host to non-championship Formula 1 races. Set in beautiful Cheshire parkland, it has always been a favorite with drivers who relish its challenging curves and with spectators who could watch their heroes compete on a true road circuit. Drivers such as Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Graham Hill, Surtees, Rindt and Brabham came to Oulton for the Gold Cup and spectators could see and even meet them in the open paddock atmosphere of the time. Major sports & GT races such as the RAC TT were also on the Oulton Park calendar with Lola T70s, GT40s, Ferraris, Lotii and, of course, Chevrons in the hands of Hulme, Redman, Bonnier and other top drivers. Club race meetings provided variety and plenty of action with the VSCC’s Seaman Trophies meeting for vintage and historic racers being the highlight of the season for many racegoers.
