Not content with establishing a race for production sports cars, the International Trophy programme for 1952 contained a race for production touring cars: the forerunner of all subsequent saloon car races held this side of the Atlantic. Held over 17 laps of the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit, it was won by Stirling Moss in a Jaguar Mk7 at 75.22mph, with Ken Wharton's Healey second and Sidney Allard's Allard third. The class winners were Dick Jacobs, in an MG, Crook in a Bristol, Wharton and Moss.
