Back to Silverstone

I’m enjoying more work on the Silverstone Heritage Project, this time researching and writing up just about everything that’s happened at the circuit.  It’s involved revisiting many years of watching sports with the F1 story, but new ground for me with motorcycles and production cars.  This great picture is of Sheila Van Damme with her Sunbeam at Silverstone in about 1955.  Her racing team partner was Stirling Moss.
