The four-wheel drive Ferguson-Climax of Nick Adams had the advantage off the line before a first-lap incident involving Richard Wilson’s Cooper and Stephen Bond’s Lotus caused a red flag in the Brooks Trophy, the first race of the Sunday morning. When the race restarted, it would be the Cooper-Climax T51 of Barry Cannell that crossed the line first.
Driver Richard Wilson has been checked and released. Driver Stephen Bond has been taken to hospital with a minor injury.
The Brooks Trophy is for 2.5-litre Grand Prix cars from 1954 to 1960, an era that encapsulates both front and rear engined machines.
