Race Report: Silverstone, 9 June 1974


Conditions were very tricky with a very wet track for this round of the Forward Trust Championship and it was Tony Rouff who made the best start in his GRD to lead from Brian Henton’s March. Driving carefully but quickly Rouff led from start to finish with Henton, who after the race said his engine had been misfiring, unable to do anything about the flying American. Nicholas von Preussen looked to be having an exciting time all round the track but he managed to stay on the tarmac to take third place as well as setting the fastest lap. Retirements included Dick Parsons who had engine problems in his Ensign and Derek Lawrence who retired the Ehrlich at the end of lap 1.
