Silverstone news :
Announced on wednesday 'Sadly the Green E has withdrawn from Silverstone this sunday'. Steven Moss and his crew had been working tirelessly to repair the car after its big shunt at Cadwell 10 days ago but it has become clear the car wont be ready in time. This popular car had just had its new paint on its bonnet too before its tripple 360 spins along the Cadwell barriers caused alot of damage during a BARC race. 'Driver error was to blame' said a philosphical Moss after getting 2 wheels onto the wet grass. Moss and his Anglia known as the 'Green E ' with 30 series starts should be back for Croft in July .

Having missed the Thruxton round young Chris Southcott from Southampton returns to the series in his MG Midget Modsport car.
Already a very rapid combination Chris has uprated his car with a 2.3 Vauxhall 'red top' engine purchesd in the winter from fellow competitior Steven Moss.
This moves Chris into class B for over 2-litre cars and if not already so before makes him a likely race winner.
Father Andy Southcott is also entered in his own Midget in class C.
