Scottish Motor Racing Club

A Rich Pedigree Delivering Fast Paced Action

Existing in its present form since 1963, the Scottish Motor Racing Club organises and runs several Championships throughout the year, mainly at Knockhill Racing Circuit in Fife. The Club is beloved of many prominent figures in Scottish racing, including Sir Jackie Stewart, Paul Di Resta, Dario Franchitti, David Coulthard and more. Find out about some of the exceptional pieces we have been involved in over the years below.

The Hamilton & Inches Trophy was commissioned by the late John Romanes in memory of his mother who had recently passed away and presented to the Scottish Motor Racing Club to be given as an annual award.  The silver trophy, presented on wooden plinth, features the winner's names of The Hamilton & Inches Championship for Modified Sports Cars.

The Jock McBain Trophy

The Jock McBain Trophy was donated to the Club by Jim Clark, who won the F1 World Championship in 1963 and 1965, and is deemed by many to be the greatest racing driver of all time.  He was President of the Scottish Motor Racing Club from 1964 until his death in 1968.

Jock McBain was a formidable part of the Borders Reivers Team
Despite initial success as a racing driver, sadly, the war and RAF service intervened in his driving career, however he was a prominent figure in the sport during the rise of 500cc racing in England and putting Scotland's name on the map.

John Romanes ‘Swift’ Trophy

John Romanes was an Honorary Member of the Scottish Motor Racing Club and sadly died in 2003.  He left a considerable legacy, part of which he left to the Club. To continue the family connection, his wife Doris asked us to design a trophy which would be a lasting memory of John. 

Celebrating his love of birds, the John Romanes ‘Swift’ Trophy was first awarded in 2005 for ‘Excellence in Motor Racing’ and has been won by all the top Scottish drivers over the last 15 years including David Coulthard, Dario Franchitti, Allan McNish and Paul di Resta.

Geoff Waugh Medal

Geoff Waugh was a dentist who raced several cars back in the early 1960s.  He became Clerk of the Course at Ingliston in the late 60s and when he died, very young his family commissioned the making of a series of silver medals by us which the Scottish Motor Racing Club presented for over 20 years.

In 2003 this medal was replaced with a new one which was commissioned by Sir Jackie Stewart and uses the same die for the reverse side as the Geoff Waugh Medal to continue its legacy.  The medal is presented for ‘Service to Scottish Motorsport’.

The King Hussein Trophy

The King Hussein Trophy was crafted in Sheffield in 1961 by Walker & Hall. We were involved in the engraving of the cup and it is still a magnificent part of our showcase. The first winner was Peter Gethin, who went on to race in Formula 1 and won the Italian Grand Prix at Monza in 1971 in what is still the closest finish in history with the first 5 cars being covered by 0.6 of a second.  Sir Jackie Stewart finished in second place and went on to win his second World Championship that year.
