Ward storms to brilliant Freddie March Memorial Trophy win

For immediate release: Saturday 9 September 2017

Chris Ward continued from where he left off to take his second win of the day in the Freddie March Memorial Trophy race for 1952-1955 sports-racers. The former Silverstone chief instructor started his Cooper-Jaguar from the last row of the grid and tore through the field in stellar fashion. The veteran moved into the contention at Madgwick on the last lap after deposing long-time leader, Aston Martin DB3 driver Rob Hall.

It was a blistering performance for Ward who steered the silver Cooper on its bumpstops in contrast with the super-smooth Hall. Both drivers drove brilliantly to pull clear of eventual third-place finisher, teenage sensation Richard Woolmer in Matthew Collings’ brutal HWM-Cadillac.

Ward said: “It was great fun. Rob drove a great race and placed the car perfectly. He certainly didn’t make it easy for me.”
