2019 Speed Championship

Participation in hill-climbs and sprints has been key to the 500 movement since the first cars appeared just after WW ll.  In the 1950’s and ‘60’s our cars became the mainstay of British club motorsport and it is those same qualities of providing motorsport for the impecunious enthusiast which have endured whilst now enjoying increasing spectator popularity.

During 2019, club members will be able to participate in over 20 hill climb and sprint events from March through to November.

Within this framework there are 11 flagship events which make up the club’s points scoring Speed Championship. These events run a guaranteed class for eligible cars from which a competitor’s best 9 scores count to a final total. There is no registration necessary however competitors must be 500 OA club members.

In addition there are ‘invitation’ events where club members don’t have to pay an extra membership fee and where, when there are more than 4 or 5 500 OA entrants, the organising clubs may run a class solely for our cars.

Key elements of the Speed Championship are:

  • An 11 round series run at 9 different venues.
  • A competitor’s best 9 results count.
  • Run in two classes according the age of car:
  • The John Parker Trophy for pre 31 December 1953 cars.
  • The Girling Trophy for 1954 to 1961 cars.
  • Automatic registration to score Championship points on membership of the 500 OA.
  • The top 10 at each round will receive 15 to 3 points, plus every competitor who completes a timed run will automatically score1 point.
  • All cars must have a valid VIF form of Category A, B or C to score points.
  • Full Championship details can be found in the ‘Regulations’ section of this site.
  • Within the Championship the Wally Cuff Trophy for period cars over 500 cc combined with FJ cars will be run at 5 nominated rounds.
