I am fortunate enough to be on the mailing list for the Eastern Counties Motor Club Historic Review, Each month the editor Leigh Trevail sends me an electronic copy of this wonderful peak into club road racing and rallying from the 1950s to the 1970s in this part of England. The publication describes itself as a document for those interested in the history of post war motor racing in the eastern counties.
The feature story this month is about the first race that was held at the Snetterton racing circuit which took place in April 1952. What caught my interest is that the winner of a 3-lap race for cars from 1,100 to 1,500cc was Archie Scott Brown in an MG. This was the very first race ever won by Archie Scott Brown, who went on to become a British road racing legend and who is very closely associated with Lister race cars. He was tragically killed in a motor racing accident at the Spa in May 1958 while battling for the race lead and was widely mourned by the racing community at that time.
Below is the image of the cover of a book that I have which covers Archie Scott Brown as well as the Lister race cars.
Good Book About Archie Scott Brown
