The Le Mans-winning cars will star among a tremendous grid for the BRDC ’50s Sportscars showpiece race at the Coys International Historic Festival held at Silverstone from July 30-August 1.
Tiff Needell races the winning Jaguar C-type of Hamilton and Rolt in 1953, Lukas Huni drives the Hawthom/Bueb Jaguar D of ’55 and Peter Hardman is in the Salvadori/ Shelby Aston Martin DBR1 of ’59.
An unprecedented gathering of more than 40 BRMs and BRM-engined cars celebrates the marque’s 50th anniversary there, with 1952 driver Froilan Gonzalez back to drive one of three V16s. Tom Wheatcroft is sending a Mkt, plus a Type 25, P48, P67, HI6, P139 and P180 from the Donington Collection.
