I was very sorry not to have turned up with my Lola T70 this year (I was forced to go abroad three days before), and try to circulate 12 times in 30 minuses, as you correctly stated in the April issue. The Pomeroy Trophy is always an amusing meeting, as it gives one a chance to have some fun widh cars in one’s collection which are not necessarily vintage.
In my view, however, the Trophy should be restricted to cars which arrive at the circuit under their own steam. My Lola is a true road car (although it has been officially timed-0-60 in 3.2 sec. and standing quartermile in 11.25 sec.), and I am certainly glad I did not have to race Pilkington’s Alfa set up as a racing car and driving on “slicks”.
