Oulton Park Gold Cup
This year the Mid-Cheshire M.C.’s Oulton Park Gold Cup Race Meeting due to take place on September 19th, has been relegated to Formula Two. However, a full supporting programme should ensure a good day’s sport. The meeting commences at 2 p.m. with a Formula Three race over 19 laps of the 2.761-mile circuit, and prize money for the Winner is £50, with £30 and £15 for second and third places, respectively. The main event then follows and is over a distance of 40 laps with the winner receiving the traditional Gold Cup and £200, whilst £150 and £100 have been allocated for second and third places, and minor cash awards also go down as far as eighth place. Completing the programme is a saloon-car race over 19 laps and worth £5 to the overall winner, as well as subsequent incentives for the first three drivers in the class placings. Official practising takes place on September 18th from 10 a.m, to 4.15 p.m.
