Ford Motor Company entries “all equipped with Borg Warner automatic transmission.. the first time any such equipped cars have raced in Great Britain”

After the Le Mans-type start, the race featured a battle royal between Hawthorn and Sopwith whilst behind there was much mayhem as the big Zephyrs bounced off each other, Foster rolled and Peter Taylor was caught by BBC cameras being hurled out of his Riley at Woodcote after clipping Bierley’s Rapier. Post race Sprinzel pleaded to allow racers to do up their seat belts, and do away with Le Mans starts.
