Close racing and an amazing spectacle for the AMOC Horsfall Meeting at Silverstone...

With anniversaries coming thick and fast this year, the Aston Martin Owners Club naturally took the opportunity of the 59th running of the St. John Horsfall race at Silverstone to celebrate the marque's famous one-two victory at Le Mans fifty years ago. The celebration took the form of a two-lap parade of some two dozen Astons which have competed at Le Mans, including Ulster LMs, DB3S and the winning  DBR1s themselves.The Horsfall race itself commemorates "Jock" Horsfall who, with Leslie Johnson, won the 1948 Spa 24-Hours in a  works Aston Martin, drove his privately entered Aston single handedly to second place in the same race the following year and losing his life when his ERA crashed at Silverstone. David Freeman led this year's race from start to finish in his 1936 2-liter "Spa Special" Speed Model with Adrian Johnson and Jim Campbell (Mark 2) following home. Jane Varley took fourth ahead of Nick Mason (Ulster LM21).Other winners during the day included Christopher Scragg whose V8 won the AM Classic championship and Intermarque races and Patrick Blakeney-Edwards, spiritedly driving Gavin Henderson's Le Mans Replica Frazer Nash to first place in the 50s sports car team race. Jamie McIntyre (Lister Chevrolet) and Doug Ellwood (Marcos Mantis) both won 40-minute races with sadly very small fields and the David Brown Trophy relay race for 3-car teams of Aston Martins fell to Team A, David Taylor, David Reed and Robert Rawe.
