I would just like to take this opportunity of thanking all the marshals for their efforts over the weekend. I know that both days were very long, but I know that the competitors certainly appreciated all our support.

Most posts were busy and it was a shame that we did not have more marshals that would have enabled us to possibly arrange some stand down periods.

Unfortunately with the various accidents over the weekend we were late finishing on both days and I am sorry about this but it was unavoidable

I look forward to seeing some of you at the HSCC meeting at Silverstone 14th and 15th May on the GP circuit. If you have not volunteered yet then please contact the office as I am out of the country for a week.

Best regards

I had a great day with a great crew on Sunday at McLeans, marred slightly by the small field for the final race. Having spent all day furiously working out big grid race orders and trying very hard not to just wave the blue flag at everyone, having a race with 9 starters lined up for 40 minutes was not quite the same challenge!

The Group C 1 hour race was epic. The Sauber had lapped every other car with about 10 minutes to go and carried on ploughing round at the same metronomic fast pace. Brilliant to watch.

Next year can it be a bit less windy? Having to juggle the green, yellow, white and red flags in quick succession while trying not to lift off down the hill was quite tricky... next time I think I'll pack an extra arm, just in case.

Here's to the injured parties from both days making a full recovery.

Thanks to Alf for looking after me on Saturday in the Assembly area so I survived the day - having not planned to work at all but helping out due to shortage of numbers. Great fun doing pit lane hooter on Sunday as well!

Best moments were during the Group C formation laps - Bill (as SC Observer) announcing they were honestly at full chat (in a 1.4L car), then looking out the window as they approached Coppice to see the Merc nearly rear-end the SC as it lost speed up the hill and finally, as SC was (fortunately) well left to come into the pitlane - watching it being overtaken by almost the entire field!!!!

TOTALLY AGREE!!!!.......i rarely get a tear in my eye when watching racing, but the sight of that sauber followed by the spice and 3 silk cut jags did it for me......i never got to see these cars in their prime, but watching them flying around donington on sunday really gave me a sense of what they were like....

...i remember reading up on these cars when i was a kid and always wished i could see them race against eachother....never thought id actually see it one day!

BRILLIANT!

You know you're getting old when you remember them first time round

Fantastic day up at post 19. As all previous people have said, the sight and sound of the Group C race was fantastic. Add this to 4 BMW CSL Batmobiles in practice (only 1 made it to the race) and a massive field of Lotus Cortinas made it a great day.

I was the first marshal out to the injured driver, at Coppice out, in the Formula Junior race on Sunday, does anyone have any update on him?

Ah, but you can't be that old if you can still remember them.

Mike Kelly - we joke about Bloxham but I think you have a bigger magnet.
