This year Harmsen Tilney Shane in aid of Prostate Cancer UK sponsored a 1950’s Austin A35 race car. Our captain was ex Lotus Formula one driver, Martin Donnelly, joined by car owner Jonathan Lewis and suffice to say they did us proud.
Martin’s F1 career ended in 1990 following an accident in qualifying at the Portuguese Grand Prix. Martin carries the after effects to this day and consequently the team had to fabricate a special foot support on Saturday morning to enable him to properly drive the car.
On the Saturday, we qualified in 2nd place obtaining front row on the grid and managed to hold onto our position finishing in 2nd place, +1.568s behind 1st place.
The Silverstone Classic Celebrity Challenge Trophy Owner Race witnessed a terrific three-way slipstreaming scrap for the top spot between Mike Jordan, Jonathan Lewis and Ben Colburn, with the advantage switching on practically every lap.
The ex-BTCC race-winner ultimately drew upon all of his racing experience to prevail, with the pursuing Colburn and Lewis separated by a scant two thousandths-of-a-second at the flag.
Both races helped the event to raise a very significant amount of money for the Classic’s official charity partner Prostate Cancer UK.
If you couldn’t watch it live the highlights of the 27th edition of the Silverstone Classic, the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival can be viewed on ITV4.
