Silverstone Historic Grand Prix circuit once again proved to be the perfect venue for the Motor Racing Legends season finale. 2022 reached its conclusion in memorable fashion with two days of full-on competitive racing all held in largely dry conditions despite autumn storms making for dramatic scenes during both days’ morning qualifying sessions. Run from the International Paddock, the benefits of the modern ‘Wing’ facility saw all competitors housed in garages, with warm indoor hospitality for competitors coupled with excellent balcony spectating for the assembled public who were rewarded with non-stop thrilling battles.
With support races on the program from the GT Allcomers Challenge and the HRDC, the atmosphere was buoyant for one final showdown of the year. The feature race of the weekend was the three-hour Royal Automobile Club Pall Mall Cup which saw eventual victory for James Thorpe, Phil Keen, and Phil Quaife’s Jaguar E-type.
Matt Hancock was trackside to cover the event over the two days.
