The International Gold Cup is a prize awarded annually to the winner of a motor race held at the Oulton Park circuit. In the 1950s and 1960s it formed one of a number of highly regarded non-Championship Formula One races, which regularly attracted top drivers and teams. With the increasing cost of F1, the number of non-Championship events dwindled and the Gold Cup fell by the wayside in the mid-1970s. After this time the Cup was open to Formula 5000 cars, then Formula 3000 cars, before finally being reduced to a courtesy award made for the winner of the race deemed "highlight of the weekend". (Text from Wikipedia).

In 1970 there was 31 Fórmula 1 y Fórmula 5000 and some of the best drivers, as Hailwood, Rindt, Surtees or our protagonist, Graham Hill.

With a Lotus 72 with motor Cosworth, Hill qualified only 12th and had to retire in the first heat, what force him to not run in the second heat.
