Video: Watch Race Highlights From 73MM
Race One: Gerry Marshall Trophy Part 1
The weekend kicked off with the big (and in some cases not so big) saloons of the Gerry Marshall Trophy. Watch out for the efforts of Nick Swift in his little Mini, taking the fight to the big boys out front.
Race Two: Taylor Trophy
The Formula Junior cars of the Taylor Trophy put on an exciting show in the second race of the weekend, with wheel-to-wheel action throughout the race that was eventually won by Andrew Wilkinson’s Lynx-Ford.
Race Three: Graham Hill Trophy
The sportscars of the Graham Hill Trophy were the last to take to the track on the first day of the 73rd Members’ Meeting. Racing into the dark the AC Cobras and E-Types fought it out in an exciting half hour race, and it would be team captain Emanuele Pirro who would take the victory.
Race Four – Les Leston Cup
The British sports and GT cars from the 1960s added some homegrown heroics to day two, with constant close racing through the field. After battling his way through the field it was Chris Ryan’s MG B ‘ Le Mans’ that clinched victory.
Race Five – Sopwith Cup
The ’50s saloon and sports cars may have been older than those in the Gerry Marshall trophy, but they weren’t putting up any less of a fight. After a hard battle against some plucky opposition it would be Andy Wallace’s beautiful Jaguar Mk1 that clinched the win.
Race Six: Derek Bell Cup
We won’t spoil the ending for you, but the F3 ‘screamers’ of the Derek Bell cup provided what must be the closest finish in Members’ Meeting history.
Race Seven: John Aldington Trophy
Former BTCC racer Andrew Jordan may have swept to victory in the race for early 911s and 901s, but the constant sideways action throughout the field made the John Aldington Trophy one of the 73MM highlights.
Race Eight: Earl Howe Trophy
The gorgeous, elegant, pre-war racers of the Earl Howe Trophy held nothing back in their battle for victory. Amongst the sideways action there was plenty of time off the track for many of the entrants.
Race Nine: Gerry Marshall Trophy Part 2
As it turned out the big Gerry Marshall saloons were even more exciting in their second outing than the first. Our own Chris Harris was right in the mix s Nick Swift and Andrew Jordan’s plucky mini again took the fight to the bigger boys.
Race Ten: Bruce McLaren Trophy
The mighty Can-Am cars blasted onto the circuit for a fast and furious race that included Nick Padmore’s amazing, record breaking lap, on his way to victory.
Race Eleven: Hawthorn Trophy
In memory of the legendary World Champion the front-engined, single-seater cars fought it out for the Hawthorne Trophy. While Barrie Baxter and his BRM took the fight to the leader it would be the Maserati 250F that came out on top.
Race Twelve: Salvadori Cup
Rounding off a stunning weekend’s racing were the gorgeous sportscars of the Salvadori cup, and it was a race for the Lister fans to savour.
