Six-wheelers to compete for famous prize

| 5 Jul 2012

Two six-wheeled F1 cars will star at the Silverstone Classic when they compete in the Grand Prix Masters – from 20-22 July – for the reborn Daily Express International Trophy.

The innovative machines from March (the prototype that smashed into Goodwood’s top ten) and Tyrrell will join fully liveried ’70s and ’80s GP metal – raced in period by teams such as Arrows, Ensign, Ferrari, Lotus, McLaren, Penske and Williams – for the two GPM races. The aggregate-points winner of the two will be awarded the Daily Express International Trophy.

Esteemed past winners include Alberto Ascari, Giuseppe Farina, Mike Hawthorn, Froilán González, Stirling Moss, Jack Brabham, Graham Hill, Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Emerson Fittipaldi, James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

Nick Wigley, event director of the Silverstone Classic said: “For so many of us, the Grand Prix Masters races always evoke strong memories – doubly so now that they will be competing for one of the most illustrious prizes in F1 history, the Daily Express International Trophy.”
