"My first race with the D-Type was on 14 April, 1956, when I drove it in the British Empire Trophy at Oulton Park," said Peter Blond in an interview with historian Anthony Pritchard. "It was a proper road circuit, and I liked the fact that the D-Type seemed very happy there, particularly in the dry. It was my local circuit and I came to know it quite well. It was a very testing circuit – if you went off, you were quite likely to go into the lake or hit a tree. I finished fifth in the heat for cars over 3,000 cc, ahead of Ken Wharton with Joakim Bonnier’s Alfa Romeo Disco Volante."
