SCOTT BROWN VS GREGORY
Reading Nigel Roebuck’s .column, I recalled Archie Scott Brovvn’s penultimate race at Silverstone.
I was standing at Stowe watching the two Listers charging in at top speed, Archie always that bit more sideways than Masten Gregory, who still managed the corner faster.
I believe the aerodynamic changes made by Ecurie Ecosse to the Gregory car gave him more front end bite. Gregory’s front wings were filled on top, possibly for straight line speed, but almost inevitably gave less front lift than Archie’s works car with its swept down front wings.
Needless to say we were all devastated that Archie was killed trying to overcome not only his own disabilities, but a car which was probably not capable of the lap times of that of his rival.
