In late Spring 2014, Chris Sharples, then Chairman of the HSCC and I mulled over, on several occasions, the idea of running a race in memory of the legendary Archie Scott Brown who died at Spa in 1958. It seemed that Snetterton being the home circuit of both Archie and Lister cars, was the logical place to run it and that the Autosport 3 Hour meeting was the right one to run it at. A proposal was submitted to HSCC Race Director, Grahame White and received a positive response. Whilst the BRSCC have periodically run races in Archie’s memory, I believe this to be the first race which runs cars that were contemporary with his career.  In addition, of course, we are remembering Brian Lister who sadly died last year.
