“Daily Express” Silverstone B.R.D.C. Meeting
British Record Men. — John Cobb, Bob Berry and “Goldie” Gardner doing their demonstration runs.
Chiron in Healey. — Healey won the Team Prize. The cornering pictures were purposely taken at the same spot, to provide a comparison in styles and rolling angles.
Rapid 2-Litre. — Culpan’s Frazer-Nash, which was third, cornering fast with no appreciable roll.
Tyre Versus Car. — “Bira” cornering in the Jaguar which led the Production Car Race until a burst tyre spoilt its run.
Close Together. —Peter Clark’s H.R.G. leads Newton’s Frazer-Nash and Peter Morgan’s Morgan “4/4.”
The Victor. — Alberton Ascari, who finished second in Heat 1, and won the Final of the International Trophy Race at 89.58 m.p.h.
Incident. — Farina, whose Maserati won Heat 2 from Villoresi’s Ferrari, cuts it fine at Club Corner, touching a straw-bale. Chasing Ascari in the Final he lost time for the same reason.
Flagged. — Ascari winning the International Trophy Race. The flag flew off its stick and the Ferrari carried it with it.
In Action. — Ascari’s V12 Ferrari taking Club Corner during a finely-judged race. One lap was done at over 93 m.p.h.
E-Type Effective. — To Peter Walker went the honour of bringing an E-type E.R.A. home, his two-stage car finishing fourth in Heat 2, fifth in the Final.
First and Second. — Brandon (15) and Moss after the 500-c.c. race, shortly before they closed in and shook hands with the cars in motion.
