The Ferrari driven by von Trips/Gendebien was the car used by Hawthorn at Silverstone on May 4th, the V6 Dino engine being replaced by a V12 Testa Rossa engine, still with the gearbox attached to the engine. The other three works cars had the four-speed gearboxes in unit with the differential unit. All cars had de Dion rear ends, while the Dino chassis had Grand Prix front brake drums.

The Scuderia Ferrari started four cars and finished second, third, fourth and fifth. A wonderful demonstration of reliability, but apparently not good enough for the Commandatore.

The second Lotus Fifteen, belonging to the Belgian driver Berchem, spent so much of practice being rebuilt that he had no time to learn the circuit, so he scratched.

Poor Carol Shelby spent a long time learning the circuits and then did not get a drive, Salvadori broke the car too early in the race.

The average speed of the Moss/Brabham Aston Martin was almost exactly one lap faster than the Brooks/Cunningham-Reid average of last year. Given the same overall running time, this year’s winners would have covered 45 laps against last year’s 44 laps.

The Manx-tailed Porsche RSK was found in practice to wander badly on the fast parts of the circuit so the fins from the crashed car were cut off and welded onto the new car, and the wandering tendency disappeared completely.

Campbell-Jones found the Osca a nice car to drive, very fast, but rather tiring.-D S. J.
