Car - Melchester Racing, McLaren M23
Race - 1978 British Grand Prix
Driver - Tony Trimmer
England's Tony Trimmer won the Shell British
Formula Three Championship and E.R. Hall Trophy in 1970. He entered six
Formula One World Championship Grand Prix during 1975 to 1978. The
Scalextric car represents the 1978 British Grand Prix entry of
Melchester Racing. Driving the McLaren M23, he finished a superb third
in the rain-soaked 1978 BRDC International Trophy non-Championship race
on the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit.
Although qualifying sessions had been dry,
the 40 lap race was run in torrential rain, resulting in multiple
accidents and drivers spinning off. The top step of the podium was taken
by Keke Rosberg. Emerson Fittipaldi was second. That year Trimmer won
the British Aurora F1 Championship.
