Fancy something a bit different this weekend? The 64th edition of The Vintage Sports-Car Club's Pomeroy Trophy takes place on Silverstone's Grand Prix Circuit tomorrow (Saturday 16 Feb).

A total of 110 competitors, including our Chairman, David Richards CBE, and our CEO, Hugh Chambers, will take on a series of tests including the famous ‘Wiggle Woggle’.

David will compete in his wife's Frazer Nash Le Mans replica, while Hugh will be behind the wheel of his much-loved MGB.

Amongst the eclectic group of entrants are a Vauxhall 30-98 OE Velox 1924 (the oldest car running in this year’s event), a 1934 Aston Martin Mark IIL, a 1956 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider and a 2017 Citroen C1.

In addition to the Wiggle Woggle, competitors will also be challenged by the Braking Test, Standing Quarter Mile into Flying 250m and the 40 minute ‘blind’ sessions which sees the competitors attempt to achieve a predetermined number of target laps.

Spectator entry is free for this historic event. Gates open at 8am.
