The 1956 race was actually to F2 regs, though they did not officially come into force until 1/1/57. IIRC there were 4 or 5 genuine F2 single-seaters in the race, with sportscars making up the numbers

I am not sure the 1958 Gold Cup took place. There was a sports car race in 1958 won by Salvadori, but it wasnt actually called the Gold Cup - I think it was just given the title later to maintain continuity!

Is anyone still interested in the later results? From memory the next three winners were
1980 Guy Edwards, Arrows A1B,
1981 John Surtees Maserati 250F (Historic race)in the wet
1982 Tony Trimmer Fittipaldi F8, poor field of 5 cars

[/It was certainly called the Gold Cup at the time,as I recall seeing it live on TV.
Odd that this thread has 'slept' for 18 months-at least now we know why paulzhino is interested! I might still have 1985 Autosport report.Must sort out storeroom.Can't remember how many years copies I carted here when I moved from London 10 yrs ago!

Although I've never been to Oulton, I have a distinct interest in the '58 Gold Cup. From the reports I've read, there were at least two heat races wich determined the grid for the "Gold Cup" final. Keith hall won one of the heats in the Lotus Eleven I own today(4DTN), but had gearbox problems in the final.

I wasnít around in 1958, but here's why I said what I said. The race programme for the event on 20th September 1958 calls it "International Car Meeting for Sports Cars", the title page the "Oulton Park International Meeting" and the main race "Sports Car race over 1100cc". On the awards page it states that first prize is £150 plus "The Lookers Cup", and on the race entry page "A Race for Sports Cars". Curiously, Roy Salvadori in his autobiography on page 123 discusses the race without mention of the title Gold Cup, and even has a picture of him receiving the trophy (from Colin Chapman) without calling it the Gold Cup.

I donít doubt that earlier in the year the race had been advertised as the Gold Cup, and I am sure some people called it the Gold Cup at the time. Also, I donít doubt that a few years later the race was counted as a Gold Cup when they started creating winners' lists. And yes, the race was televised so I am sure the commentators may have called it the Gold Cup. I just donít think there was actually a real Gold Cup race in 1958. Just a Lookers Cup that the Alchemists turned into a Gold Cup!

As for the Lotus Eleven driven by Keith Hall, I think it won its heat in the British Empire Trophy race in April rather than the Lookers/Gold Cup.

Whatever, the good news is that it looks as if Oulton (and Brands etc) have been saved by Jonathan Palmer. Shame really, it would have been nice to have had a house on the Avenue...

I'm sorry, you are correct that it was a heat for the Brit Empire Trophy in April that was won by Keith in 4DTN. It's been quite a while since I actually looked at my history files for that car.
