Despite heavy rain an upbeat grid of 17 cars started the 70th anniversary St. John Horsfall race at Silverstone today. No less than 10 Pre-War Aston battled for 20 minutes to claim the top honour. But it was Stephen Skipworth in his 1939 single-seater originally built for Brooklands who came out on top winning the coveted St. John Horsfall Trophy on handicap.
Clive Morley in his Bentley 3 4 1/2 took overall race honours, with Richard Bradley in second aboard Team Car LM2. Stephen Skipworth completing the overall race podium.
