I'm sure plenty of the VSCC competitors are in a similar condition, so probably yes!

I was driven around the circuit just before the event started and was really impressed with the new surface - lots of interesting tread lines from the weeks testing though, but couldn't believe that the few yards of the Historic Grand Prix circuit where it differs from the current one @ Vale hadn't been done, ships and ha'peth of tar come to mind.

Thought they were doing the complete circuit! I know at least one section has had to be been done again as problems after first go, so maybe Vale still on the to do list....

Just been round again and realised that the track edges are marked but there are no grid markings yet.

Not a problem today of course because all 3 sessions are 'rolling starts'.

The surface definitely needs some time and travel (over it) to settle in as it was quite a strange mix today.

Several of us found the front end hopping or sliding with whelps from the tyres in the slower corners - quite unnerving as from the seat you have no idea if it is ripping the tyres to shreds - it wasn't

It has also had it first dousing in BMW diff oil - overall a good day and pleasant in the sun and out of the wind

Its the same as Donington, other than a handful of bike grid marks.

Well, sort of the same. The gird part of the start/finish straight has been resurfaced. Plus the entire paddock area other than the "under the trees" camping section.

The gravel tracks from the old main gate round to the paddock entrance have been asphalted. The Paddock entrance access is now the main gate with 24hr security. The old main gate is currently 7am to 7pm only.

Lots of work going on. Old toilet facilities around the circuit are being replaced. Loks like some sort of prefabricated units are favoured but the old units still stand an McLeans and the building at Coppice seems to have been demolished with two port-a-cabin style units placed there. Presumably not yet in service as they were locked today and unmarked as to preferred lifestyle orientation choice.

Much building work visible. The outer track has some huge pot holes at the moment. I did not check but was told that the tunnel form the paddock to the infield was closed today.

The Pits area Paddock fencing is gone.

The Scrutineering bay fencing is gone and the central office building with it.

Half of the blue and white walls are now red and white. Where that change has been deployed looks quite random. There is clearly a lot of work still in progress.

Our Delta reported hopping at certain points when testing there recently, which suggests some bumps, and I was told that there is still some rectification to do. Hope Bauble has some pics to show us at some point!

And "Mini Copper"! Probably scanned with character recognition by a computer rather than entered by hand, but somebody should be checking manually.

More irritating to me, in the programme they reprinted the initial report from last year's event, when only provisional results were known, and therefore listed Alex Ames as top placed 'modern', when in the final results it was, ahem, T Galbraith in his Subaru Impreza!

A great day yesterday and seemed much better organised than last year.

Thanks Bob. Eclectic mix as usual, but Maxi my favourite! I presume the little hatch is a ‘Gazoo Racing’ Yaris GRMN....... (Engine built at Hethel by Lotus , but don’t ask what ‘GMRN’ stands for )
