INVITATION CHALLENGE RACE at SILVERSTONE, 7th JULY 2002.
The Historic Sports Car Club was asked by organisers Octagon to organise an historic sports car race to support the British Grand Prix. After receiving some 80 entries, the field was whittled down to 45 starters. Famous names among the starters included Frank Sytner, Robert Brooks, Barrie Williams, Tony Dron, Win Percy, David Piper and Sir Stirling Moss. It really was a mouth-watering array of late 50's and early 60's sports cars!I tried vainly to get some racing shots, but you know how it is at Silversone these days, you're at least half a mile from the track with untold fences etc in between, which is why I'm not including many.
Better off with the paddock shots!
And that was it, a quite fantastic field of cars, if only we could see more historic races in amongst the modern stuff!
