The Vintage Sports-Car Clubs ‘Pomeroy Trophy’ held at Silverstone on Saturday 25th February has been won again by a ‘modern’. John Felstead driving a 2004 Subaru Impreza finished on 426.06 points closely followed by Martin Short in a 2021 Toyota Yaris GR on 415.2. The latter only lost out on the acceleration and braking Test C & D by a narrow margin. The winner of the Densham Trophy for road legal VSCC eligible Pre-war cars, Andrew Smith driving a Frazer Nash Super Sports, must be cursing his luck as, but for a 20 point penalty for a luggage infringement, he would have won overall.
Held on a cold but dry day with afternoon sunshine the meeting took its usual form with four tests in the morning followed by 40 minutes on the Grand Prix circuit in the afternoon. Test A was the infamous ‘wiggle-woggle’ following a set route between cones to be passed on alternate sides, all timed of course. Test B is an acceleration and braking test, stopping in a ‘garage’. Test C is a standing start ¼ mile followed by a flying 250 metres, again, all timed.
