Motor Sport News - - Historics -

The 70th an­niver­sary of the for­ma­tion of the Cooper Car Com­pany will be cel­e­brated at Prescott on Satur­day July 30.

The event marks 70 years since John Cooper and Eric Bran­don com­peted at the first Post-war Prescott hill­climb with the pro­to­type Cooper Mk1 in the sum­mer of 1946. Coop­ers went on to win at World Cham­pi­onship level, in both sin­gle-seaters and sportscars, and around 70 cars are ex­pected at Prescott with the sup­port of the Cooper Car Club. Many will take part in classes for sports and sin­gle-seaters and oth­ers will do demo runs.

Guests in­clude John Cooper’s son Michael with the ex-jackie Ste­wart Cooper-bmc T72.
