Cowes Classic 1961





1961 - The Legend Begins

To celebrate the 50th running of the Cowes Torquay or as it is now known the "Cowes Classic"
I thought it would be interesting to compile details of that first race way back in 1961.
Notice the very early entry list and the hand typed details, where would we be now without our PC’s?.
Entry number 35 is an interesting one in a few more years his designs would be conquering the world at the
sports highest level…Mr Don Shead.
Notice also the Stewards of the Meeting includes one Donald Campbell CBE.
