Oulton Park's signature Historic Gold Cup returns for three days of nostalgic motorsport action on 28-30 July.

On-track entertainment at this summer's event will once again be overseen by the Historic Sports Car Club (HSCC), with race content from many of Europe’s leading historic motorsport organisers, including the HSCC itself. Grids will also be provided by the Historic Grand Prix Cars Association, Formula Junior Historic Racing Association, Classic Sports Car Club, Vintage Sports Car Club, Historic Racing Drivers Club and Motor Racing Legends.

Away from the circuit there will be huge car displays, a concours, period live music and much more besides. The Jim Clark Trust has also confirmed its attendance, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Clark winning the Gold Cup and the F1 World Championship in the same year.

The 2022 Gold Cup received nominations from the prestigious Royal Automobile Club Historic Awards and the Historic Motoring Awards presented by Octane. The 2023 edition will build on that success and be better still!
