St Mary's Trophy

Grant Williams’ sideways heroics wowed the crowds during the second instalment of the St Mary’s Trophy.

The Welsh tyre dealer flayed the rear rubber on his Jaguar Mk1 after blasting past initial leader Nick Naismith’s Austin A95 Westminster - in which Tom Kristensen won yesterday - by the end of the first lap. He proceeded to stretch out his lead despite the Jaguar never being fully in a straight line. Naismith then lost out to Richard Butterfield’s Jaguar on the third lap, Butterfield having dropped hitherto third-place man Richard Postins’ Austin A40 who then fell into the clutches of Rae Davis’ Austin A35. The latter duo enjoyed an epic battle until the halfway mark of the 25-minute race when Davis had a grassy moment at St Mary’s. Up front, Williams continued on his imperious way to victory on the road and an aggregate overall win with Derek Bell.
