Story and photos by Jonathan Sharp
The well-established ‘Spring Start’ season opener was a spectacular two-day feature at Silverstone, with the celebrated Pre-war and Historic content taking center stage across the weekend’s program.
In addition to the Vintage Sports-Car Club’s own prestigious GP Itala Trophy Races for Vintage, Pre-1961 and Pre-war Sports-Cars and ever-popular Pre-war Scratch and Handicap formats, there were some of our other traditional events; these include a Race for 1950s Sports Racing Cars, the High Speed Trial for those new to Circuit Racing, as well as the celebrated Mike Stripe Team Relay Race for Pre-war Sports-Cars.
