Yes, Rudi, I will be there for the Historic Road Sports in the Chev Camaro. This is the first time I have been to DP in this car and looking forward to discovering how it feels.
The season is starting ! Spring is here !

I hope all you venerable and respectable gentlemen will behave yourselves during the rolling starts and SC interventions at the start of the season as a different hand will be in the SC. I'm probably going to miss the first half of the season, at least, after having spent a week and a bit in the Knackers Yard with knee troubles again.

I'm afraid I won't call recurrent 2hr periods of leg muscles locked in excruciatingly painful spasm a leg tremble.

Hmm.

Sounds nasty.

Good speed with finding a fix.

Good turnout of Alfas in the 70s Roadsports race - might try to get down for this meeting if the weather's good - our last visit to race there (with 750MC) was completely rained off after qualy....

Popped in to see Delta and a few others testing at Donington earlier today.

Nice fresh tarmac and gleaming white lines in the open paddock area where tarmac previously existed. Just ready for gazebos this weekend ... but presumably it survived the BSB lads last weekend.

The gravelled area, or at least most of it, seems to be gravel still

The grass is looking lush. I think one has to mention the grass now doesn't one?

That it was generally a nice sunny day may have helped but I thought the place was looking pretty good. Christopher Tate was to be seen inspecting the garage complex and chatting to customers just before and during the lunch break.

Looking forward to Saturday.

Had a great day up at Donington yesterday, stunning weather and sum great drives thru out the day thru could have done with out the confusion in the Derek Bell Trophy race with the safety car leading to 1st n 2nd pace being excluded.

Here's my pics from the day, hopefully have vid sorted out at sum point:

Yes, a lovely warm spring day. Donington itself was in better condition than I have seen it for a long time with new paddock tarmac, improved toilets and shower facilities, the infield grass area looking good and the paddock cafe as good as always.
The formula ford entry was fabulous - over 50 cars - including Tim Brise after a long lay off.

Historic Road Sports were first on track at 0910 and even then it was tolerably warm. Considering that the last time I visited in April for U2TC at the Historic Fest, it was bitingly cold, windy & wet, this was a major improvement.

Agree with Morningents : the Paddock retarmacing and the general tidiness of the place, the improvements to race surface etc made an instant impression. Give MSV & Chris Tate a couple of years and a plan and we may get proper Scrutineering place and etc.

The whole raceday was great. Anyone who has any pictures of maroon Chev Camaro in action in Race 1, plse contact me.
Thanks all
Nick

Re Derek Bell Trophy

A reminder to all that no overtaking is allowed when yellow flags are displayed especially when under Safety Car Conditions. Two competitors, one the Race Leader, overtook the Safety Car - Probably in error as they were allowing back markers past to collect the leader. Leader should know that is what they were doing. So, lets fly past the Safety Car, run round at high speed to catch up the pack. Probably realising the error the two leading cars then overtook the entire train to reposition behind the Safety Car. All under waved yellow flags.

Message is clear - overtake under yellow flags you will visit the Clerks and be penalised. End of Lesson.
