Earl of March Trophy Race

Earl of March Trophy Race

The 2011 Earl of March Trophy race featured 500cc Formula Three cars that raced between 1948 and 1959. The race regularly provides some of the closest, most competitive racing of the Revival weekend. The 2011 race was no exception, as young charger Sam Wilson claimed honours in an enthralling 20-minute Earl of March Trophy race.

The karter turned Formula Junior ace belied his lack of experience in the half-litre motorcycle-powered single-seaters to win on his category debut in Charley Banyard Smith’s Kieft-Norton. The 20-something didn’t have it all his own way, though, as Gordon Russell chased him to the flag aboard his Mackson-Norton. The veteran ace briefly took the lead on the penultimate lap as backmarkers came into play, Wilson having had a grassy moment at Woodcote only moments earlier, but he came back at Russell with just one-and-a-half miles left to run to take back the position. In third place was Nigel Ashman in Pat Barford’s Kieft-Norton. Having stalled the car on the line, Ashman stormed through the pack to claim the final podium spot, taking the fastest lap of the race on the final tour in the process.
