The 12th BRDC International Trophy was a motor race, run to Formula One rules, held on 14 May 1960 at the Silverstone Circuit, England. The race was run over 50 laps of the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit, and was won by British driver Innes Ireland in a Lotus 18. The race was particularly notable for the death of experienced American driver Harry Schell in a violent accident during practice in wet conditions.
- Stirling Moss also practiced in a different Cooper-Climax (car #20T) but it was damaged in an accident. He subsequently practiced and raced Ken Gregory's car.
- John Surtees also practiced in a privately entered Formula Two Cooper-Climax (car #32) but did not race it. He may also have been entered for the race in a Vanwall, but this is not confirmed.
