AFN Limited will run its fourth port-war Stanley Cup event, for teams of three pre-1966 cars from one-make clubs, starting from Towcester racecourse in Northamptonshire on June 19. The previous format of touring assembly with regularity trials on private ground will be adhered to, and AFN will once more offer a £1000 prize to the Red Cross. Fifty teams will be admitted.
There is a special award for the highest placed ladies’ team, this being the Peter Mitchell-Thomson Trophy, an FNCC team prize which was last won in 1934-35 and has been presented to AFN Limited by Mrs WH Aldington. The Hon Peter Mitchell-Thomson was a well-known Frazer Nash driver whose mother used to occupy his pit at Brooklands and mark it with an open golf-umbrella.
Details of the Stanley Cup competition are available from Martine Layland at AFN Limited, Falcon Works, London Road, Isleworth, Middlesex TW7 5AG.
