BRSCC SupaTura British Saloon Car Championship

Let's Get Small - 1960 index

The 1960 British championship was something new indeed. The cars running for the championship were "special touring cars", so most things could be altered. The cylinder block, rear axle casing, gearbox casing, wheelbase and rim diameter and overall apearance had to remain standard; everything else could me modified. But the snag was that it was open for unsupercharged cars under 1000 cc only.

The cars were pretty fast, as expected; too early yet for Mini domination, but Shepherd's Austin A40 was often amongst the Jaguar 3.8's in combined races, and Young's Anglia was not far behind either. But Shepherd was the dominant force, winning six races and retiring in the other two. I haven't got a clue about the championship points or the second in the championship; if anyone knows let me know.
