As far as MRL is concerned it was a full grid at Donington.

And don't forget, the Members Meeting attracts a full grid of Group 1 cars from UK and Europe.

That's good. sounds like a growth area, I'm glad to see it, nothing like a good grid of saloon racers.

I was a little sad to see so few supertourers. Has the bubble burst (again!)?

First visit to the Festival and I enjoyed it but only went on the Sunday. Highlight was Richard Evans' drive from 16th to 1st in less than 3 and a half laps in F2. What appeared to be an avoidable incident spoiled a good race at the front of the last touring car race and an incredibly long safety car session in the U2TC race the only slight downsides to a really good event. Even the small Super Touring entry provided good racing at the front and the back of the field. I will go again.

Couple of pages back I stated that 'from memory' the 1000km series for sports racers and certain touring cars (hence the CSL entered) incorporated the HSCC Martini Trophy. Wrong! Thank you memory.....

It is the 'Pre-'80s Endurance' series that has absorbed the Martini cars, still under the HSCC wing but now co-promoted by Flavien & Vanessa Marcais. (GTSCC)

The series will be racing at the HSCC Silverstone International meeting weekend after next. Fingers crossed for a good grid.
