VSCC Hawthorn Trophy
The VSCC end-of-season Silverstone meeting suffered because of its clash with the Le Mans Classic, there being smaller entries than usual for the headline races at the Hawthorn Trophy.
John Ure took ERA R9B to victory in the combined Hawthorn Trophies event, just fending off the chasing Mac Hulbert in R4D. However, Mac turned the tables in a later pre-war scratch race.
With several strong rivals absent, Ted Williams took full advantage to steer his Cooper Monaco to victory in the 1950s sportscar race, while Edwin Jowsey took the special Lotus race in his father’s 22.
