Aston Martin Owners Club St John Horsfall Meeting
'Promising to be even more successful than last year' is how the Aston Martin Owners Club confidently describes its forthcoming race meeting at Silverstone on Saturday 30th May.
Eight races are scheduled, spanning all eras of Aston Martins, including the Fifties sports car team challenge, pre-1960 sports-racers and super GTs plus, of course, the prestigious St. John Horsfall Trophy race for pre-War cars.
There’s already a full grid for the team challenge, with no fewer than 40 Astons, Alfas, ACs, Jaguars, Healeys and Lancias, while the sports-racers boast DBR1s, C-type Jaguars and Ferraris, plus Jamie McIntyre’s rare Lister Corvette.
Further entertainment is planned in the form of a lunchtime track parade, featuring an impressive array of genuine Le Mans Astons in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the marque’s 1959 win. Another highlight will be the revival of the David Brown Challenge Cup – a team relay race – which guarantees some fun in the pit lane…
