Jerry Peachment was leading when the red flags were flown by safety officers on the 11th lap.

The Windermere Grand Prix, the sixth round of the British Formula Grand Prix series, had to be abandoned due to a deterioration in the weather on July 6. Reigning champion, Jerry Peachment was leading when the red flags were flown by safety officers on the 11th lap.

Drivers and officials were deeply disappointed by the decision. Paul Noone lying second in the championship said, “I was looking to this round as an opportunity to make my push but now I will have to wait until Teesside.”

Jerry Peachment was awarded first prize on the distance driven but without championship points added to his pre-race score.
