Sun shone on Silverstone for HRDC Touring Greats

After endless weeks of snow and grey weather things finally brightened up a little for the first race of the HRDC 2013 calendar at Silverstone on Saturday. We were there supporting Julius Thurgood and Rupert Keegan as they campaigned “Bumble” the ZA Magnette qualifying 12th and finishing 9th overall and 2nd in class B. James turner piloted the Zodiac solo this weekend. The old Ford was running quicker than ever achieving 3rd place in qualifying and holding 2nd place in the race until a loss of oil pressure forced retirement with less than 4 minutes left on the clock. Next stop is back up to Silverstone for the HRDC Allstars race on the 21st April. Photographs courtesy of Peter Baker Retro-Speed. Full report can be found here.
