Silverstone Classic Celebrity Race 2011

First introduced last year as part of the Silverstone Classic weekend, the event returns this year bigger & better than before! The race took place on the 23rd July, and was a great success. The celebrities raced each other round the full Silverstone Grand Prix circuit in race prepared V6 Morgan Roadsters, all to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund. The best action from the race was without question a spectacular crash by Luther Blissett, who rolled his car three times after clipping the apex on the third corner of the first lap! Luckily he walked away unharmed, if a little shaken! The final line-up for the race, in order of their finishing place, was:

1st:     Rick Parfitt Jnr

2nd:    Heston Blumenthal

3rd:    Brendan Cole

4th:    Paul O’Duffy

5th:    Comedy Dave Vitty

6th:    Paul Stewart

7th:    Lee McQueen

8th:    Alexander Nall-Cain

9th:    Zoe Cole

10th:  Sally Boazman

DNF:  Luther Blissett

DNF:  Jimmy Akingbola

DNF:  Jo Wood

DNF:  Vicky Gomersall

The race was a great success and has currently raised close to £20,000 for the Bobby Moore Fund. Congratulations to all those involved!
