Video: Cooper‑Norton's monster finish line shunt

George Shackleton had led the Earl of March Trophy in his Cooper-Norton for most of the race, before losing the lead to Peter de la Roche. In a bid to regain the lead in the last corner, he carried a little too much speed through the chicane and ran wide onto the grass.

He collected the slide, narrowly missing the tyre wall just before the pitlane entrance. It looked like a terrific save and a near miss… until the car swung back the other way and ran into the pit wall almost square on. Despite a heavy looking impact, Shackleton was out of the car as soon as it came to a rest. A frustrating end to a terrific dice.
