Silverstone Classic Celebrity Race 2011
Silverstone Classic Celebrity Challenge 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!
