The 2023 Oulton Park Gold Cup, July 28-30, will feature a special celebration of two-time Grand Prix World Champion Jim Clark, two-time winner of the showpiece event at the Cheshire Circuit.
The celebration comes 60 years after the iconic Scottish driver won the first of his two titles in 1963.
The celebrations will be held in partnership with the Jim Clark Trust, which oversees the official driver’s museum in Duns, Scottish Borders.
The Trust will be present all weekend, with an official stand and a presence at the event.
Highlights will include the display of a Lotus 25 Grand Prix car, driven by Clark to his maiden Formula 1 title as well as his Gold Cup victories in 1962 and 1963.
The iconic classic model single-seater will appear alongside a Lotus Cortina, driven by Clark in the British Saloon Championship when not in international action.
Both cars will be featured in the Oulton Park exhibit which will feature a selection of artwork, photos and more to celebrate Clark.
This will include a commissioned painting from local artist Stephen Jones, which will be revealed to the Trust at a special reception on Friday evening.
Visitors to Oulton Park on Saturday and Sunday will be able to view the exclusive artwork before it moves to permanent residence with the Trust in Scotland.
Other opportunities for fans to engage with the Trust will include Jim Clark Trust merchandise and memorabilia, while Sunday morning will feature a Q&A with Clark’s nephew and cousin. A book launch is also planned, with full schedules to be shared in due course.
David Willey, MotorSport Vision Group Motorsport Event Manager, said: “We are all extremely pleased to welcome the Jim Clark Trust to this year’s Oulton Park Gold Cup.
“Jim Clark was a giant of Grand Prix racing, undoubtedly one of the sport’s greatest, and we are very proud that our site has played a part in his history. 60 years after his first Formula 1 title , it’s the perfect time for us to celebrate his memory at the Gold Cup.
The Jim Clark Trust added: “This year the Jim Clark Trust is delighted to attend the Gold Cup at Oulton Park from July 28-30 to celebrate Jim’s remarkable achievements 60 years later.
“The Lotus 25 will also be on display throughout the weekend, along with one of Jim’s famous Lotus Cortinas which he also drove around Oulton Park. We look forward to seeing you there as we remember our great champion.”
