The weather turned up trumps for this, the final car race meeting of the season in England. The entry too was about the best seen at any Club Silverstone this year.

Also apart from the ordinary every-day sports cars, we had such specialised racing machinery as Webb’s very potent 1,100-c.c. Turner supercharged racing single-seater.
