Silverstone Classic

Huge grids, fantastic racing, big crowds and superb weather all pointed to the best edition of the Silverstone Classic so far. Tragically, an awful shadow was cast when Denis Welch lost his life after his Lotus 18 overturned in the HGPCA Pre-61 race on Sunday.

One or two classes were short on numbers, but there were still 360-odd entries for 14 categories and 18 races.
