These photographs were taken at the Coys International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone in July 2000 when the circuit celebrated 50 years of Formula One at Silverstone. The first World Championship Grand Prix took place at Silverstone in May 1950. The Coys meeting included demonstration runs by various drivers and this is one of them.
This is John Surtees leaving the pit lane to take part in one of the demonstrations driving a 1971 Surtees TS9B. This car also took part in the F.O.R.C.E. Pre 1972 Classic Grand Prix Car Race at this meeting driven by the owner John Bladon.
