I was amazed by how slowly it could fly. A friend later told me that this characteristic was one of the design objectives.

My wife was not a fan, till they met. Her only words for the duration of the display were: "How can something that big be that graceful?"

The TVOC folk are complaining the racing cars interfered with the sound on their video of her display!!!

Thanks for the nice photos.

I had a most enjoyable weekend. Both races were real crackers with some great battles. Keith Ahlers had the power advantage in the Morgan over my Elite but I was able to carry more speed in a few places and gave him a good race.

The Mini race was just brilliant fun. I seemed to be down on power on a couple of cars on the straights but had a few great battles. We seemed to change places every lap and I ran as high as second but finished 5th. Given how competitive it was and how close the racing was I think it was a real credit to all out there that there wasn't a lot of paint traded.

The whole weekend was just superb. I thought I was the only person in a Russian military uniform and then blow me down if I don't bump into 5 guys dressed in Russian uniforms as the event was coming to a close last night.

Now onto Spa. Two of the best weekends in the year in a row. Wow!

If you want I could try to organise a Kazakh uniform for next year ....(or Kyrgyz, Uzbek or Tajik for that matter, including one of the aircraft carriers they use on their head. )

And how can something so graceful and beautiful be designed to kill so many people in one go. My old man was an airframe fitter for the other 'V' bomber the Handley Page Victor and I think working on that and other wartime killing machines during the 2nd world war drove him to drink especially as he supported the Russian Communist regime, he never could get his head around it. Years ago at an air display at Radlett I once saw the Victor actually perform aerobatics including the Loop the Loop, amazing sight.

Roger,
Can I suggest that next time you let a "celebrity" drive your mini, you show them how to open the bonnet
They obviously have people to do those things for them on TV!

I stand corrected, I knew about the engine and have known Henrik for a few years now, he also has a pretty rare Sabre in his fleet, although his Cortina GT has moved to Holland I believe

Done and dusted for another year, all things being equal 'Weal meet again' or is it wheel? Whitsun Trophy, the usual carnage as one well known poster was heard to comment in the pit lane 'Hooligans'. Most of the racing was at least clean and green on this extremely fast circuit. Seemed to spend more time in the assembly area waiting for things to happen than usual this year, at least it gives one time to gather opinions on many varied subjects and to reminisce; Stirling did not drive one of those, did he?. Adverse comments must be reserved for the so called competitor and support park. The ablutions are in the least diabolical and an insult particularly to the male population where 5 wc cubicles had to suffice for the numbers present. Either his worshipfulness's organisation has sadly underestimated the numbers or there were an awful lot of folk who should not be situated in the park, the inspection of labels seemd to be very lax; and the facilities in the paddock area are a joke. With competitors contriuting to the effort the 'freebie' is not an accetable retort anymore.

I thought there was a lot of waiting around for things to happen and the programme was running an hour late by the end of Sunday. There were no incidents to cause lengthy delays so I can't really fathom why. Perhaps it was due to Sir Stirling's 80th Birthday tribute which must have been a logistical headache with 80 cars to marshal in which case I can't complain.

Perhaps the lesson learned is not to be overoptimistic during the planning stages...or shift one Sunday race to the Saturday programme, which did not run into the evening this year.

Saturday was run to schedule with Vimy taking off as Fordwater finished. I have been at clubbies that have gone behind schedule so I dont think we can blame them for that!!

I don't think that was necessarily the case. There was ample opportunity in my view to catch up. The wait between races was very long.
