Congratulations to Neil Fisher who was the overall winner in the pre ’63 race at Silverstone last weekend. He put in a fantastic drive to pass the Austin Healeys of Mark Holme and John Pearson. Pole-sitter John dominated for most of the race, but Mark Holme was never far behind. However the early pit stop seemed to benefit Fisher in his Sebring Sprite and he took the lead when the lead cars made their compulsory stop.
In the B Group Equipe GTS race the Wilkinson / Kinsella MGB took a commanding lead from the start and was never really troubled, finishing well clear of the Noel Leonard MGB in P2 with Neil Coker in P3, also driving an MGB.
With the combined grid there seemed to be close racing all the way down the field with the cars well-matched.
