Yet another enjoyable “clubmen’s day” occupied Silverstone on July 9th when the “500” Club realised a long-standing ambition and offered real racing to its enthusiastic members. Two three-lap races, a 10-lap race confined to Cooper, Bond, Iota and Marwyn cars, another 10-lap race for non-production “500s” and an ambitious 100-mile race comprised the “fare.” Brandon won the first race fairly convincingly from C. A. N. May, whom we told you to watch, with Habin third — Coopers 1, 2, 3, and Brandon averaging 67.78 m.p.h. Dryden repeated the dose in the next race, averaging 68.90 m.p.h. in his Cooper-Norton, but Brandon and Parker’s Parker-Special were engaging in a fine tussle behind him, Parker finishing a second to the good, at 68.84 m.p.h., in a car described in Motor Sport last May. Dryden then added to his laurels by winning the production-car race at 68.34 m.p.h. from the Coopers of Whitehouse (68.10 m.p.h.), and John Cooper. The “specials” race saw only three finish — Moor’s Wasp 500 winning at 68 m.p.h. from the Parker (67.78 m.p.h.) and the Grose. The 100-Mile Race was a grand tussle between Collins’ Cooper and Parker, until the latter lost much time refuelling. Collins won at 66.5 m.p.h. from John Cooper’s Cooper (65.75 m.p.h.) and Parker’s Parker-Special. What a God-send Silverstone is to the clubs
