I know that Mike Newton is trying to get some of his fleet of cars out which include an MG Lola EX257, a MG Lola Coupe EX265C, a MG Lola EX264, a Embassy WF01 and a HPD ARX01.

Well I don't need to post mine now as some people have put infinitely better quality videos than I could hope for.

I may have to make an inquiry about that Embassy WF01...

Would love to see more of the NGT and GTS cars such as the Ferrari 360, Porsche RSR, Spyker, Saleens, Viper, Maserati, Aston, Corvette but even what we have atm is fantastic to watch and listen to. Kudos to the organisers for making this happen

Sal some great clips of this from a few youtube subs I am on.

SOme great cars, and nice to see the GT stuff in there too.

Lord only knows how much that Peugeot must have cost or is being leased for!

The guy with the Aston is a regular testing there and has a few nice cars like that.

Not fussed at all by the vast range of cars, it's the same with BOSS. And this will hopefully do a lot better than that rather poor series.

A mate of mine has the Grove SR2 car available for sale, but needing re-commissioning.

Where do you want it to be reported..... ?

Masters have a report on their website.... http://www.mastershistoricracing.com...x-hours/event/

Interesting that the race was organised by an 'Historic' Organiser, and held at a big 'Historic' meeting, but the only talk on tenths is in the 'Modern' section! Maybe the cars are too new for some of us old codgers....

I think series like this will become more popular in the coming years.

As motorsports goes electric and race cars generally get tamer sound-wise (just compare the 550 to the Ford GT, today's cars are so much less spectacular) people will turn to historic racing more and more to get their fix of loud, smelly & gritty.

Mind you, it happened on a weekend that those covering the main sportscar and GT races were busy with FIA WEC, Blancpain GT, ADAC GT Masters, Pirelli World Challenge and GT4 European Series.

I saw the first of the 2 races at Imola this weekend just gone, sadly not a massive amount of cars but thoroughly entertaining none the less. Plus a good amount of nostalgia and engine noises...

Alex Kapadia in the ex SMP Oreca 03 was quickest all weekend but it still led to some good racing.

The Peugeot 908 (V12 edition) was looking good until a spin near the end of qualifying. Coming out of the last corner and tagged the wall with the rear. and didn't emerge for the rest of the weekend.

The ex Dyson Lola of Steve Tandy was looking good as well, a faster pitstop put him in front of Kapadia who slowly caught Tandy and passed him with a few laps to go.

There was a great battle foe 3rd between the Creation of Gareth Evans, the Audi R8 of Travis Engen and LMPC of Freiser (which must have had it's silencers removed as it made a lovely throaty sound!)

The 458 GTE was the quickest GT car on track but was plagued by gearbox issues, but lovely to hear it's shrill as it went past. The 2 Aston DBR9's sounded SO lovely as well, makes me miss GT1 even more. The Venturi sadly didn't get much running but certainly looked lovely having never seen one in the flesh.

Surprisingly attrition hit the newer Oreca 03 LMP2 cars (although the Pilbeam, Courage-Oreca LC75 and Lucchini did as well but maybe this is perhaps in keeping with period...)
Those of us in the grandstand gave the Courage-Oreca team a cheer when they finally got it into the race about 5 laps down! Lots of running back and forth attempting bump starts.

Mike Newton ran well in his MG Lola, closely followed by the ex Kolles Lola LMP2 as well which provided much needed variety from the Orecas.

Sadly had to leave before Sundays race but hopefully more will come out for the Brands Hatch round as the variety and race length is just right for these cars.
