Southport Classic & Speed 13th to 15th September 2024

September 13 - September 15

2024 sees the third running of this event. It is organised by the Aintree Circuit Club. Southport, alongside Brighton, Bexhill and Blackpool is one of Britain’s original Motor Sports venues. The Aintree Circuit Club is working to commemorate that and of course continue to make history.

For 2023 the organisers kindly arranged a closed class for Bristol and Bristol engined cars. That attracted five entries and we were able to make the inaugural award of the Anthony Crook Memorial Trophy to the fastest car in our class. The trophy went to Ben Maeers driving Peter Mann’s Frazer Nash Le-Mans Replica RPJ1. Appropriately this is the car in which Tony Crook enjoyed his greatest motor racing triumph at Monaco in 1952. For those who know their Bristol history, Southport is where, in 1926, Crook became addicted to motor racing. You could speculate that without Southport the future of Bristol Cars (and cars) would have looked very different after 1960.

If you are interested in attending and participating in some or all of the weekend, please could you let me know as soon as possible.
