Product details Wakefield Trophy
Wakefield Trophy, 1929. The Wakefield Trophy was awarded to Major Henry O?Neal de Hane Segrave by wealthy industrialist oil king Sir Charles Cheers Wakefield. Segrave had driven Golden Arrow to achieve a new World Land Speed Record of 231.362mph/372.341kph on 11 March 1929, at Daytona Beach, Florida, USA. The holder of the record was given a silver trophy to retain, along with £1,000 per year by Sir Charles. Designed by Phoebe Stabler the hallmarked silver trophy depicts a leaping figure of Jupiter carrying a lightning bolt as a sign of invincible power. Like the Golden Arrow car, the styling reflects that of the Art Deco movement popular during the late 1920s and 1930s.
