A burgundy coloured car by any chance?

Mike/Zeff....clearly since you did this at LMC, the car thinks it needs to deploy an air brake at every event!!!

Yes! I think that once again it had been going backwards- at some point previous to the air brake deploying.....

Nice one John. Hope new owner enjoys the car!

On a different note, I made a comment about driving standards in the Masters Sportscars race several post back, after watching the ITV prog. This is an extract from a long email from Ron Maydon, sent to all Masters competitors today....

"Following the recent incidents at the Silverstone Classic event in the FIA Masters Historic Sports Car race, I felt that I needed to write to all our Members concerning the conduct of drivers and teams both on and off the track, which I felt fell to an unacceptably low level at that event. I feel that the Silverstone incidents were a low ebb in Masters’ otherwise excellent history.

I have asked the permanent FIA Steward, John Naylor, to clamp down on all on-track and off-track incidents from now onwards and a new discipline enforcement regime began at the Nurburgring, which the majority of drivers and preparers racing at that event applauded and welcomed as being overdue."

That's sufficient without going into detail. Glad I wasn't the only one unimpressed!

I'm sure that I'm not the only one to be impressed by the calm and reasoned manner that you (and Ron Maydon) have commented on / dealt with this issue. Thank you. Jcdeleted

Ron Maydon is one of good guys and will sort situation.
I watched race as had a major interest in one of cars that turned into a demolition derby.
The bloke in B8 baffled me who dragged his damaged rear bodywork for three laps before coming into pits then wondering why he wasn't allowed to continue disputes having no rear bodywork.
Enough been said about situation at front
Probably all started when they allowed continuation cars or faked ,reengineered jobs etc
If Ron adopted Patrick Peters CER rules that may stop some of the nonsense.

Can anyone give me a rough idea of prices for the weekend for this year's event? I've googled the usual sites but that sort of info isn't forthcoming.

I'm a regular at Goodwood but thought I'd have a change next year - the Silverstone meeting seems to offer the racing and paddock (albeit a very crowded paddock - no elitism at Silverstone!) without all the ballyhoo and poseurs, and what I think would be a cheaper cost.

Thanks in advance.

From memory the 3 day weekend ticket was £99 if you bought it early.

Thats about the right price, if you are a member of a car club there are discounts available too.
You will see much more track time action at Silverstone but you may miss the pedal cars and speeches.

I was thinking along those lines.

I'm a man with permanently rose-tinted specs, and I love Goodwood because it still looks roughly the same as my beloved 50s/60s, but if it's racing I'm after, then it might as well be a whole lot cheaper. Plus I bet the local accomodation is better value than West Sussex.

Maybe my purse can stretch to both.............

Enter as a competitor..it's cheaper.
No really, an old pal was demonstrating historic karts year before last and got the full competitor ticket package including car pass for £35!
