The B.R.D.C. Silverstone International Trophy Meeting
Silverstone, May 2nd.
The B.R.D.C.'s "Festival of Speed" has become an important fixture for many British spectators, who enjoy a full day's programme for modest admission charges. This year over 100,000 flocked to Silverstone, not, as on the Continent, in carefree fashion to drink in the sun at outdoor tables as the racing cars were driven through colourful streets, but in pouring rain to a bleak circuit under the watchful "eye" of radar speed traps.
The big event was the 16th International Daily Express Trophy Race over 52 laps, or approx. 152 miles, for F.1 cars, speculation Increased because Ireland had won at Snetterton, Brabham the Aintree 200, Clark at Goodwood.
