I note the instructions say safety checking until 7pm so I presume it's open at least until then but from local knowledge I think it's a fair bit later. If it's any help the circuit number is 01325 721815 - might be worth checking with them just to make sure.

Looking forward to the weekend - good to have the HSCC up here!

Sunshine and a few showers on a very good first day of this meeting. A few samples below, more to follow after tomorrows races:

Any pics of a Mr Goldfinch? A mate of mine. Heard he had an excursion into a wheat field!

Car 50 in the Historic FF race? He finished 19th, a lap down on the winner Darren Burke. I didn't see the wheat field 'off' - I suspect this would have been about 1/2 mile further on from where I took the photos below at a corner called Tower - a difficult (for some!) right-hander where if you go off you can make it through the gravel trap and into the farmer's field beyond (no barriers etc) and then make a leisurely return back onto track. Can't easily photograph that point unless you have a media pass so for 'us amateurs' it's difficult to capture.

I'll keep an eye out from him later today.

Roger,

Further to my earlier reply - 'duff gen' on my part - he actually finished 14th in the first Historic FF race and 9th in the Classic Racing Cars. In today's FF race he retired on lap 1 - not sure why - and don't think he appeared in the second CRC race.

Another good day which seems to have been successful for Croft - I hope the HSCC agree and return next year. Photos to follow during the coming week.

I just had a message from him. Someone spun in front of him and they tangled. A shame as he needed signatures on his licence.

I agree with Gary, yesterday was excellent. I'm only sorry that I could not be there today. Hopefully, the event will return again next year. I've attached a few photos and will add others in the next few days.

Wheat fields aren't normally the natural habitat of Goldfinches, are they? Perhaps this one got blown off course!

Race 1 - Historic Formula Ford

The first race was greeted by a heavy shower of rain which continued throughout most of the race. It was won from pole by Oliver Thorpe in a Royale (car 48), with Tom Pope (car 26 a Reynard) second. Derek Smith (car 10 a Delta) had a storming drive from 14th on the grid to finish third. A few photos:
