I thought I would celebrate the new forum by putting a few pictures on, starting with one raced by one of our regular posters, SZRacer:-



Taken in the paddock at last year's Goodwood Revival. Just click on the thumbnail.

Good pictures John, is there any chance you can get this heading/Forum/Topic to appear in the CTCRC's link to the site as I often go in that way and I am sure members of that club would be interested. Also I notice that the other thread on two driver charges I was following has been placed in this forum now and hence does not appear on the CTRCC link.

Yes, those early TVRs are a bit special aren't they? Especially those that have the 289 Cobra or it's derivatives in them. Very desirable motor.

An Historic car is an Historic car with or with out the historyonics and silly in fighting if you know what I mean and would be appreciated by like minded lovers of old cars :-).

I race in CTRCC and and I could not be bothered with all the FIA this and FIA that stuff and associated expenses (see other thread 'They want how much!') to race in other series (and my car is a 1971 model) but I still love old cars from my era when I was fixing them for the road or preparing them for the track.

That wasn't intentional; I'll see if I can find some more to even it out. All I'm trying to do is illustrate the range of historic racing which I hope will be covered in this new forum. In fact, I know Al was at the Walter Hayes meeting and entered in the same race as Zef, but by the time I caught up with him the Camaro was on a trailer (having suffered clutch failure in practice) and Al was nursing a sore head!
