Yes, itís provisionally July 31st to Aug 2nd, which is 2 weeks after BGP. If that moves for any reason, the Classic will likely move as well.....

Hope not for me as my dad is due to go to Assen for Cycling the weekend that its traditionally been on.

Will be strange though having the classic in August.

Busy July in Le Mans and Silverstone

Classic date has to be two weeks after GP for logistical reasons. So unless the F1 date moves, that’s it......

It could clash with OldTimer as well as Copenhagen.... ?

Having just watched the second Mini race on ITV, I wonder if any of the drivers in that got one of the polite letters from Ron?

Shame about the DSQ for the P2 car, but you canít continually ignore the meatball and subsequent black flag, even if your dragging rear bumper was due to a hit from another car.....

Trouble is if it comes off it can do a lot of damage to the cars behind, a decent Clerk would be looking to penalise the car that caused the damage.

and in the real world ...................................

Exactly. The meatball flag was justified, but there was as much contact shown in the race coverage as at the BTCC races from Thruxton immediately before, and didnít notice any penalties there......

The coverage was not up to Ian Titchmarsh usual standards
Had a 356 as a 911 in Pre 63 GT . Got it correct in the end and less said about PreWar stuff the better.
Missed the best part of race which was for third place
Assume problem is most of communicators are my age and have trouble adding two and two.

I watched the highlights package last night and thought it was pretty poor really. Commentators had no idea what they were talking about. Martin Haven is pretty good with modern stuff but he's not Titchmarsh or indeed Marcus Pye and that's another point, what's happened to him?

He was at one time the go too commentator for all things historic, then last year at the MM he was banished to the boonies and others were in the main box, likewise at the revival last year he was in the box at St Mary's.

Marcus was at the Classic as I said hello to him on the Friday morning. Tich is great of course , and whilst HH-F was a very tough act to follow as a colour commentator, I did find Andrew Marriott... err... ..well.. he's very hardworking, know his stuff but he really isn't easy on the ears like Henry was

Yes, Marcus was at the event, but donít forget he is a journalist foremost and writes reports for several mags. I guess that commentating normally demands a fee (quite rightly) from the circuit, promoter, club or organiser, and he / others have to earn a living.....
