Oulton Park Gold Cup 2015 - Aug B/H Weekend

Postby theelanman » Thu 25.06.2015, 15:52

The Oulton Park Cup will once again return on August bank holiday weekend (29-31 August) and it returns with an amazing racing line up featuring the Derek Bell Trophy, which recalls the Gold Cups of the 1970s, in which Formula 5000 and Formula 2 cars regularly competed for the prestigious trophy. Historic Formula 3 and Formula Ford machines will be amongst the other single-seater categories in action. GTs and tin tops will also compete, from 1970s sports-prototypes in the Martini Trophy, to the frequently sideways Lotus Cortinas and Mini Coopers in the Historic Touring Cars.

Away from the track, a large military display with vehicles and a Spitfire will feature, fire breathing Group B rally cars will take to the special stage, air displays will thrill from the sky, live jazz music will play throughout the weekend and, as always, a huge collection of special cars will take over every inch of our infield, this and loads more family entertainment will make this years’ Gold Cup an event to remember

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to this great event. If you would like to attend, you will be entitled to park in our special display area and will receive free entry for the driver over the weekend (please note that passengers will need to purchase tickets through our website, or at the gate for entry, children under 13 go free).

I will need to submit a list of cars with registration numbers that would like to attend by 8th August

shall we start a list.......

Never been to Oulton Park and this does look like a good event.
Will be looking at accommodation options in the next few days and hope to make a long weekend out of it.
Oh! and will be bringing the Elan as well.

strangely they (OP) have been over exuberant and I have received the tickets this morning..........
for those wishing to do something else (other than the RV) I am willing to meet up prior to this........travel distance allowing
the only problem is that I work away and the only date I have available will be the 15th Aug.....and it will need to be in the afternoon as I will be getting the M100 Mot'd in the morning........
or if you're out and about near Buxton over the weekend 15/16 I could also meet.........
(I notice there is a meet at Hassop Railway Stn for breakfast on this Sunday 16th...I could meet there.....)

Monday TBC as far as Rendez vous......don't know the details of racing and start times......
usually people ask people they know to collect their tickets on the Sunday and then make their own way on the Monday

Thanks Gareth for sorting out the tickets.
Had a great few days in Cheshire and loved the Oulton Park circuit, will get back to the Gold Cup meet again some time in the future.
Good to catch up with a couple of other Elan owners RobP and Ladythorpe if my memory serves me correctly.
A good mix of cars on show and some great racing.

yep it was a good day if a little wet on the Monday, nice to have met you Chipp.

Bit thanks to Gareth for organizing the tickets. I think this will be a yearly event for me as the racing wasn't half bad either. Shame the M100 gearbox had issues on the way home for matthew but is currently on the mend and we should have it back by the weekend
