A 1961 Mini Minor 850 won the Classics & Sports Car concours at Shelsley Walsh’s Classic Nostalgia weekend on 27-28 July.
Sir Stirling Moss presented owner Dave Rippard with the prize – a C&SC salver – on Sunday.
C&SC’s Simon Taylor helped judge the 100 cars and said: “It is in absolutely original specification and perfect condition, complete with period picnic basket and a transistor radio.”
The previous day’s club competition was a clean sweep for Chevron, which took the top-three Best Times of Day in the hands of local club members Martin Jones, Keith Harris and Peter Cox.
Another highlight of the weekend was a large showing of MG cars ranging from the iconic B to coupés, saloons and Midgets competing in the Luffield Cars MGCC Speed Championship.
James Thacker’s MG Midget took the up-to-1500cc class, while Andy Walker’s MGB triumphed in the over-1500cc class.
Meanwhile, Jason Blott’s Ford Zephyr Utility pleased the crowds by laying down rubber on each of its demonstration runs.
Sir Stirling was also presented with his ‘yard of tarmac’ – a MAC scheme to help maintain the course and buildings – and opened the new bar.
He said: “I have very fond memories of Shelsley Walsh, although my first application to compete was turned down as I was deemed not to have enough experience and I still retain that refusal letter.
“Thankfully I won my class at another meeting the following weekend and have never looked back since.
“This Classic Nostalgia event produces some wonderful sights, sounds and magnificent machines from over the years and all in such a pretty setting amongst the wonderful Worcestershire hills, it is delightful to see the place in very good hands and going from strength to strength.”
The next event scheduled for Shelsley Walsh is the Breakfast Club on Sunday.
