LFS 50 Laps of Westhill Trophy Season 1
The LFS 50 Laps of Westhill Trophy is a special non-championship race that is held before the start of every LFS season. As the title goes, it is held around 50 laps at Westhill. This race was held as the first.
Before the race it was revealed that one of the drivers due to take part, Mariusz Wisniewski, was imprisoned for life in his home country of Poland for an attack on the plane flying him back there, most likely because of his part in the A1GP prologue scandal, so his #12 entry was taken by Les Underdown, the first ever racing driver from the car-free island of Herm, who stepped in for his motor racing debut. He, like his fellow Channel Islander John Perrey-Wharf took his tests on the bigger island of Jersey.
Innes McDonald again chose to use the April livery on his car, like he does in all his races. This made him one of the favourites to win the race.
