The Glover Trophy, also known as the Richmond Trophy, was a non-championship Formula One motor race held in the spring at Goodwood, England from 1949 to 1965.[1]

The Maserati with which Reg Parnell won the 1949 Richmond Trophy

The race is probably most notable for the 1962 event where Stirling Moss, who had won the race on two previous occasions and was considered at the time as the World's best racing driver, crashed at St Mary's corner on the 37th lap, leaving him in a coma for several weeks and ending his career. The damaged helmet he was wearing at the time is currently on display as part of the Donington Grand Prix Collection.[2]

In recent years the race has been revived as a historic racing event, forming a central part of the annual Goodwood Revival meeting.[1]
