Race gallery: Les Leston Cup – British production sports cars, 1960‑'66

The classic British sportscars of the Les Leston Cup put on a spectacular show to start the second day of the 73rd Members’ Meeting. A near race-long battle at the front left spectators on the edge of their seats, as Chris Ryan fought to find a way past Robin Ellis’s Lotus Elite in his big MG B ‘Le Mans’. After eventually dispatching both Ellis and the TVR Grantura of William Penrose in one stunning move, Ryan went on to hunt down pole-sitter Rod Begbie’s Grantura and never looked back after passing the TVR, to win by nearly two-seconds.
