The XXX BRDC International Trophy was held on 19 March 1978 at the Silverstone Circuit, England. It was the 30th running of the International Trophy, and the last to non-Championship Formula One regulations. The race was held over 40 laps (~189 Kilometres) of the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit. Although qualifying sessions had been dry, the race was run in torrential rain, resulting in multiple accidents and drivers spinning off. The race was eventually won by a young Keke Rosberg, his first victory in a Formula One car in only his second ever Formula One race.
