The Nottingham Sports Car Club produced an entertaining day’s sport with their first race event of the season, held at Silverstone on Easter Monday. The main event, for Formule Libre cars, was won by Mike Eyre in his recently completed Buick-engined ex-F.2 Cooper at an average speed of 83.61 m.p.h. Alan Eccles, also driving a Cooper, was the only person to give Eyre any opposition.

The first event of the day was for Lotus and Terrier cars and was won by David Preston, driving a Lotus Super 7, at an average speed of 78.62 m.p.h. The most interesting race was for saloon cars and provided a great number of thrills for spectators, Frank Ward winning in his fast Jaguar Mk. II. Four other 12-lap races completed the programme, these being: for G.T. cars up to 1,150 c.c. and G.T. cars of 1,150 c.c. or over, F.J., sports/racing, sports cars, and a 7-lap event for Lotus and Terrier cars. The winners of these events were, respectively: D. Rees (Marcos G.T.), A. J. Lambert (E-type Jaguar), D. E. Fletcher (Lotus 20), P. H. Courage (Merlin Mk. 5A), M. Warner (Lotus 23), and J. Haynes (Lotus 7).

We apologise to readers who were misled by the N.S.C.C. who originally informed us that the event was on the Saturday, and not Easter Monday.
