Dudley Sterry wins tough VSCC Pomeroy Trophy

Dudley Sterry won one of the toughest Pomeroy Trophy competitions in recent memory at a sub-zero Silverstone on Saturday 23 February.  Renowned in motorsport circles as a tough event, this year’s Pom’ posed a stiff challenge to competitors and marshals as snow storms whipped across the National Circuit and a wind chill of -8oC was recorded.  The conditions meant in was particularly tough for the twenty five competitors in open Pre-war sports-cars and drivers of Post-war roofless cars.
Dudley completed 26 laps in the afternoon 40 minute session in race conditions, 3 more than his target set by the handicappers.  His final score from the five tests was 423.00 points and netted him overall victory ahead of octogenarian racer, Alistair Pugh who finished on 408 points in his 1939 Frazer Nash BMW 328 who was awarded the Densham Trophy for the best performance of a VSCC eligible car (i.e. Pre-war) not winning the best overall performance.  Completing a Pre-war line up in the overall trophies, the Club’s Public Relations and Marketing Manager, Gillian Carr won the Pomeroy Edwardian Trophy for the second year in a row driving Alisdaire Lockhart’s 1914 Vauxhall A/D Type. 
The first placed Post-war car was Martin Hunt in his pretty 1952 Frazer Nash Targa Florio on 404.6 points which was one of five cars brought to the event by the Blakeney Motorsport Team.  Pia Bianchi was the highest placed female competitor, winning a 1st class award and sixth place overall in her 1963 MG B.
The highest placed youngest competitor was twenty year old George Diffey driving father Simon’s 1972 BMW 2002 to a 1st class award and seventh overall.  Nick Swift managed to keep Patrick Blakeney-Edwards’s popular Frazer Nash Saloon ‘Owlet’ on the tarmac and took a 2nd class award and twelfth place overall.
Photographs from the event can be viewed in the event listing and can also be seen at www.petermcfadyen.co.uk
The VSCC expresses its thanks to the 130 marshals and the Silverstone Emergency Services Team who braved the conditions and the competitors who made the event such a success.
