The pictures are supposed to be from 2016, so assuming the snap of Mrs Delta is valid, one can only take it that she was a child bride. A very pretty one if I may so observe.

However this beast roaring around the GP loop at Brands, Donington and Sillystone were the highlights of my motorsporting year. The engine warming as the curfew lifted at Brands Hatch on the Saturday morning was also a joy

Thanks! Can't remember seeing before, but at least I guessed right!

Here's a few from me from thru the year, the R90CK, XJR-14 and M8F all from the Silverstone Classic. The lotus 91-5 is from Brands Hatch Masters and the GT40 & JS17 is from Donington Park Masters.

Now we're talking! None of this funny 50s and 60s stuff! Nothing like the cars from the last quarter (ish!) of the century to stir the blood. Terrific pictures.

Speak for yourself, Max, and just for that something even older. Simon Diffey in a prewar Aston Martin Ulster, who drove an absolute blinder in the wet Jon Gross Memorial Trophy/Mort Goodall Cup at the Castle Combe Autumn Classic:-

Quite right John, these young whippersnappers would know a proper car if it ran them over.

But then Simon usually does drive a blinder in almost anything he gets into, and he certainly does conduct a wide variety of historics.

Actually I love the pre-War stuff. It's the 50s/early 60s I'm not so keen on. I know, hang my head in shame and leave these pages never to return.

BTW before anyone notices, my MGs were always late 60s/early 70s cars! I preferred them to the Frogeyes.

Mike the 'C' Type is a nice looking car, but while purposeful is not really 'beautiful'. It not in the same class as many/most 1950's Ferraris, but each to his own.
Anyone who drives an Escort is seriously lacking in the finer points of aesthetics.

I suppose being from Norfolk does give one a somewhat agricultural view of machinery.
