Motorsport at Crystal Palace - 25/26th May 2014

Motorsport at Crystal Palace – A Unique Reunion of Classic Cars and Drivers

There’s just a few days to go before the fifth annual running of Motorsport at the Palace, in association with the Ancaster Group.

This year’s event focuses on the near legendary 1971 Osram Saloon Car race, which saw Mike Crabtree, Martin Thomas and Gerry Marshall wage an epic battle for victory in one of the most exciting races of the era, a race so thrilling as to feature in the BBC’s 100 Great Sporting Moments.


Both Crabtree and Thomas will be attending this year’s Motorsport at the Palace as special guests, along with the actual cars they raced in that spectacular event 43 years ago. The late Gerry Marshall will be represented by his son Gregor, while an identical replica of the Viva GT in which Marshall won the ’71 race will be put through its paces by owner Colin Robbins.

The ’71 line-up will also feature a very rare ‘Fraud’ Cortina, raced in period by Australian Doc Merfield and a WRA Anglia, campaigned in 1971 by George Whitehead. Alongside the Class of ’71, a host of classic and modern cars will be taking to the parkland course in a bid to claim Fastest Time of the Day.
