And for the past three years, Britain’s home round of the series has been held for the prestigious and historic Royal Automobile Tourist Trophy. It’s an accolade that’s been awarded since 1905, which makes it our oldest-surviving event.
Since that inaugural TT, won by John Napier aboard an Arrol-Johnson on the Isle of Man, several venues have held the event and for a variety of disciplines. Touring cars, GTs and prototypes have battled for a piece of TT history at Ards, Donington Park, Dundrod, Goodwood, Oulton Park and Silverstone.
This weekend’s WEC curtain raiser is sure to be a classic, with Porsche bidding for its first international sportscar race win at the Northamptonshire venue since Jacky Ickx and Jochen Mass took their factory Rothmans Porsche 962C to victory in the 1000km World Sportscar Championship qualifier.
Which other TTs, we wondered, have stood out, thanks to a memorable or unusual outcome, a great entry or a superb battle?
