Saturday 27th April 1963
The 8th Aintree 200 motor race, run to Formula One rules, was held at Aintree Circuit, England. Contested over 50 laps of the circuit, the race was won by British driver Graham Hill in a BRM P57. This race saw one of the last instances of car changing in Formula One, as it was already illegal in World Championship races. Jim Clark’s Lotus 25 was left on the starting line with a flat battery and joined the race a lap down, but after 16 laps, he swapped cars with his team-mate Trevor Taylor who was in fifth place at the time. Clark moved up to finish third, while Taylor was left in seventh place. Clark set the fastest lap of the race in Taylor’s car.
