On June 19th the Vintage SCC has its Oulton Park Race Meeting, perhaps the best of its four annual circuit events. The programme includes the Richard Seaman Memorial Trophy races for vintage and pre-war historic racing cars, in which Corner and Morris can be expected to challenge each other strongly and in close company in their 2-litre ERAs, and the Cheshire Life Concours d’Elegance, with a parade of beauty and rarity round the course.
The race entries include Crabbe’s Mercedes-Benz W125, the Hon. P. Lindsay’s Multi-Union and a “new” 4CL Maserati. Cheshire Car Circuits Ltd. charge £1 admission for each adult, 30p per child, paddock transfers and grandstand seats costing £1 per person. Car parking is free.
This is an opportunity to see pre-war-style racing in a Donington atmosphere and during the afternoon a number of existing ties in the Motor Sport Brooklands Memorial Contest should be resolved.
