1951 Scottish Grand Prix
The 1951 Scottish Grand Prix was a 50 lap 100-mile (160 km) motor race held on 21 July 1951 at Winfield Airfield (disused) in Berwickshire. Although run to Formula One regulations, the race featured Jaguar XK120s and BMW 328s. Parnell's BRM broke a drive shaft and failed to start and the race, over 100 miles, was led briefly by Archie Butterworth's 4WD AJB before David Murray took over with a Maserati 4CLT. Joe Kelly's Alta challenged but retired. Murray retired with fuel pump problems and Philip Fotheringham-Parker took the lead in Duncan Hamilton's Maserati 4CL, chased home by Gillie Tyrer's BMW 328. Ian Stewart was third in an XK120.
The event was not to be repeated although the re-introduction of the Scottish Grand Prix was the subject of an April Fool. Winfield Airfield is still used by Berwick and District Motor Club for autotest events.
