    MOTORSPORT AT THE PALACE 2019

    SUNDAY 26th MAY & B.H MONDAY 27th MAY2019

    Crystal Palace is one of the oldest motor sport venues in the world and, since it staged its first motor race, back in 1899, it’s played host to some fantastic battles involving some of the sport’s greatest names. From its early days as an improvised venue for enthusiasts, through the 1920s and 1930’s when huge crowds came to cheer on the local Glaziers motorcycle speedway team, right up until the circuit closed in 1972, Crystal Palace really was ‘London’s Own Circuit’.

    While the popularity of two- and four-wheeled motor sport at the Palace has ebbed and flowed over the decades, it was in the 1950s and ‘60s that the fast, challenging racetrack really came into its own. Over this period, some of the great names of international motor sport – Jim Clark, James Hunt, Stirling Moss, Jochen Rindt, Jackie Stewart, John Surtees, the list goes on ~ came to do battle in the leafy confines of the park. 

    These drivers raced on the final incarnation of the Crystal Palace circuit, opened in 1953, which proved hugely popular with drivers and spectators alike. In fact, estimates put the number of spectators who flocked to the track for its 1953 re-opening at close to 100,000 people! The roar of engines continued to echo through the park throughout the 1960s, until modern safety standards brought the final curtain down on the track in 1972.

    The GTROC return to this event after a year off with a small, relaxed yet select stand of Nissan Skylines, Stageas & GT-Rs.

    If you are interested then you need to contact us with some photos of your Skyline, Stagea or GT-R. So far we have an R32 GT-R & an R33 Anniversary GTS-T. so are looking for other models to have a balanced stand & you need to be able to do both days.

    For those who do It’s only £10.00 to join the stand for the weekend & we will provide tea, coffee etc.
