VSCC racer Garry Whyte died and two other drivers were hospitalised as a result of two separate accidents during the club’s annual Spring Start meeting at Silverstone.
Whyte was running second in Saturday’s Vintage Racing Car event when he rolled his 1921 GN Gnome at Brooklands corner. Suffering from serious head injuries, he was transferred to hospital by air ambulance but never regained consciousness and died a few days later.
In Sunday’s 500cc F3 race, Richard Bishop-Miller and John Turner were involved in an accident at Becketts and required hospital attention. Both were later released after treatment.
