Not sure much has changed with the launch of Formula Vintage, apart from doubling the price at the gate from last year.

A great selection of cars, both racing and private cars in the paddock. Access was also good. Car parking was chaotic as several car parks were being used for autotesting, fairground rides and army displays.

The action on track was the usual VSCC excellent standard, Fiscar and the F3 500s welcome guest series.

Not sure how the commentary team get away with it year after year though. They managed to miss most race starts on Saturday while waffling and didn't know the winner of three races on the trot.

Good to have a chat to a couple of Snetterton locals during the day as well

I must admit I was somewhat amused to see the Army recruiting displays. Given the average age of attendees I would have thought a Home Guard recruiting stand would have been more appropriate.

Hmm.

The Fire Service now expects its people to work until they are 60 rather than offering retirement at 50.

Presumably the Army is considering the same concept but may have spotted a gap in the age range that they need to fill, some having escaped while the pen pushers worked out how to go about things.

I enjoyed the HRDC Coombs Heritage Challenge for Pre-1966 Jaguar Touring Cars. Grant Williams in particular put on a fine display. Images copyright www.retro-speed.co.uk

A few batches of me, of no particular race - just a general theme over the weekend. A great event as usual - almost makes two days at Silverstone bearable!

Why the scrutineering photo? Well if you're wondering where to store / transport your racing helmet & overalls try this chap's example - grandmother's hatbox.
