A magnificent grid of Edwardian cars took centre stage at the VSCC’s annual Mallory Park meeting. With drivers hunched over the wheel of their giant racing machines — some of them — a century old — it was a marvellous spectacle. David Biggins won the handicap race in his Vauxhall Viper, while Julian Majzub won the Edwardian Racing Trophy in the Indianapolis Sunbeam.
Mac Hulbert, at the wheel of ERA R4D, blitzed the Bob Gerard Memorial Trophy race. Out for the first time since its accident at Goodwood, Duncan Ricketts’ E-type ERA led the chase, but a persistent throttle problem stopped Ricketts rivalling Hulbert as Graham Burrows topped the post-war cars in his Cooper-Bristol.
Simon Armer was a convincing winner of the John Taylor Memorial Trophy race for Formula Juniors, the first time that a Cooper had won the race run in memory of the former Cooper racer. Stuart Roach hurled his Alexis around in style, but could not keep in touch with the rear-engined Cooper T59.
