Just another quick one from me, here's my vid from Saturdays action at the Classic. Tried to get a wide selection of cars from all the races during the day if anyone interested:

Thanks for the reminder John, I think I've set my HUMAX thingy to record it as I'm out this evening.

I thought it was a good show, especially old passionate Tiff. Good celebrity race and of course the tin tops always entertain

Yes, a bit lightweight but then I suppose it wasn't just aimed at the hardened enthusiast. It certainly passed an hour with a couple of glasses of wine...

Sadly, when I watch the racing bits of the Classic or Goody I finish up judging driving standards! Not impressed by some of the contact in the Masters Sports Cars......

😁 Excellent!
Encouraged by the editor throwing in thrills and spills for 'good tv' i bet!

I'll watch tomorrow as I missed the first showing.

Yes. I see the repeat on ITV4 is 1000hrs this morn. Don't think I'll be in, but would like to watch that race again. Got the impression that one car was involved in a few of the 'contacts', but may be wrong.....

Abysmal coverage - about 30 secs devoted to F1 and endless wittering about slebs making tw*ts of themselves in A35s. Superficial coverage of better races - but at least we got some FF1600 battling.

And really - 60th anniversary of Fiat 500 gets airtime , but not the Lotus Seven .....

Well you can be grumpy if you like Coppice but I thoroughly enjoyed the programme. I watched it sat in the awning before I went to bed, thought there was a good balance of thrills and spills and exciting racing. Well worth watching but what do I know hrug:

Yes there was some iffy driving in the Sports Cars! I'd like to think "cock up" not "conspiracy" but that's me being kind.
