Very sad to hear of the passing of Syd Silverman. Syd was very involved in vintage racing in a number of respects for many years. He was a strong supporter of the MG Vintage Racers and he raced his MGTC with us a number of times. In fact, his MGTC was the TC that was Carroll Shelby’s first race car. He was the recipient of SVRA’s “Collier Cup” in 2003. We will miss him.
Syd Silverman was the owner and chairman of Vintage Motorsport from 1990-2012. He was a staunch supporter and participant in the preservation, presentation, and celebration of motorsports and its history for nearly four decades. Syd died of a sudden illness Sunday, Aug. 27 in Boca Raton, Florida. He was 85
