Interesting. Presume not an HSCC initiative? Maybe our little secret regarding the previous high quality of this meeting has got out...

Sadly I'll miss it, due to a clash with the Spa Spring Classic again. Sort it out for next year, please, organisers- I'm missing a GTSCC race!

No timetable on HSCC website yet, but this is provisional version I received-

I think the final timetable is slightly different - Juniors are out before Roadsports.

Thanks Alan, I wouldn't take that early provisional timetable as gospel! I am fairly certain the GTSCC Q and race are correct though....

Some good grids there!

Interesting that the HSCC call the meeting 'Silverstone International Trophy', but it's being promoted elsewhere as the 'Silverstone Historic Festival'. Perhaps the word 'festival' has had some bearing on the spectator entry prices........

Hopefully day two will have less weather and the drivers can have more track time. Shame everything got delayed but red flagging/not starting the FF race had to be right, given the amount of standing water.

Good result for Richard Attwood in the 70s roadsports

I'll agree with that Brands, the amount of rain the fell was just biblical! there was no way that the HFF race could have gone ahead. Apart from the that, was a really enjoyable day, could have spent all day just looking round the paddock.

Unsettled weather on Saturday, drove home in a torrential downpour, should have been red flagged.

Nothing vey exciting camera wise, but well ......

Thank you , Bob, for posting the Chevy picture.

Saturday's weather really was a Silverstone special.... after our race, we were being min. weight-checked in Scrutineering at about 3.30 when a giant cloud despatched several trillion tons of water over the circuit. I drove back to my spot in the open-air Outer Paddock, could not get out of the car for ten minutes, just sat there watching all my gear get drenched despite being bagged up in binliners. Clammy, damp drive home and hit another epic rain storm between Oxford and High Wycombe. Dry & sunny back home in West London.

Still, better there than out on the track.

I left after your race Nick, so caught the torrents just outside of Towcester, as you say mega stuff. I have several pics of the Chevvy, and will send a link once I have posted them on my site.

Cheers,

Bob

Constrasting weather on the two days, typical Silverstone.
We 'braved' it out on Luffield terrace cowering under big umbrellas and in full waterproofs so it wasn't too bad. The photos post monsoon, with a soaked track and sunshine, should be interesting. I will try and process them and post a few before heading to Brands on Friday.

Nice to wander through the garages and the huge paddocks.
Unimpressed with the fair or the Army displays, I really can't see the point.
From a spectators* point of view the full GP circuit is simply too long for many of the series running.


*I am aware that in the motorsport hierarchy the view of the spectator is ranked as the lowest of the low.
