The XXVIII Graham Hill International Trophy was a non-championship race, held at Silverstone on April 11, 1976. It was renamed in memory of two-time World Champion Graham Hill, who was killed in a private plane crash the previous November.

The race was won by James Hunt in a McLaren, ahead of Vittorio Brambilla in a March and Jody Scheckter in a Tyrrell. The weekend marked the first competitive appearance of the revolutionary Tyrrell P34, but Scheckter used his older 007 in the race.
