I do wonder why they seem to get good turn outs of Super Tourers in NZ, a country where there wasnt a domestic ST championship, whilst we cant!?

Thundersports should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I'm going and looking forward to attending especially the Thundersports race! I was present at the last one in it's original format. I do wonder why the HSCC haven't let it run to original regulations now the series has the "name". I realise a few of the single seat Can-am cars have been converted back to F5000 spec but there are a few purpose built cars in Europe with nowhere to race. In fact I can't recall any converted F5000 running in Thundersports.

Anyone at Silvestone today?

Weather is pretty grim so far.

Should be a good one though.

Maybe invite the Can-Am series from Germany over.I read somewhere they were hoping to do so.

Do they still run Interserie cars in Germany? I have a recollection of them running early F3000 cars with Can-Am style full bodies?
Talking of F3000, isnt it about time someone ran a Historic F3000 series - must be lots about and 3 different eras inc the 2 x single make Lolas.

Plenty of nice cars about. Shame about the weather although spray helps with the photos.
Not sure why the circuit road is blocked off from the entrance to the Porsche centre and the infield too.

Yes not great.Seeing the M8F go full pelt down the Wing straight was fantastic and LOUD 😁.

Hopefully it races if it rains although I certainly wouldn't.

Had a quick look on the comms book adjacent to the Pits earlier with it being vacant.I got tempted...not really 😁.

Little Summary.

Great race in the Jaguar Classic with the Pearson E Type winning on the final corner in tricky conditions.

Great fight between the M8F Mclaren and the Chevron B26.Great move by Dean in the Mclaren round the outside at Stowe.Brilliant.

As usual formula ford delivered along with the new Dunlop Saloon Cup also being good.Fascinating seeing a GrP A Sierra battling a late 90's V8 Supercar.Lovely.

I was hoping the C type could have held on for one more corner. Good to see a decent entry in the Saloon Car Cup.
The rumble of the M8F and the wail of the T282 were a joy.
Another good day tomorrow please.

There's building work going on opposite the Wing pitlane so you can't drive round the circuit. If you ignore the road closed signs at the Porsche Centre, you can continue round to Club but not any further.

There was an event on Stowe Circuit, which is why most of that section of the infield was closed.

The building work I gather is for a hotel.

Agree all that but what an uninspiring place Silverstone, with its prison camp built in an industrial estate ambience, has become. At least for a spectator. The lap is far to long for slower historic cars and the viewing so restricted that one spends most of the time gazing sadly at an empty stretch of unappealing tarmac, roundly cursing the fools who destroyed the place in their doomed chase for some of Ecclestones gold. I spent the day looking at the old bridge before Woodcote where the same cars racing now used to burst out at full speed before hurtling into that fearsome bend, scrabbling and sliding for grip. Gone now forever but still vivid in my memory.

Echo that sentiment, Bridge and Abbey used to be really good spectating but the place now is dull, universally grey with acres of gravel run off everywhere and as a spectator you are so far removed from the action. I'm off to Cadwell for the HSCC in a few weeks for some real race entertainment.

Too far for me sadly, living in Salisbury, but Castle Combe and Thruxton still offer the old style experiences to some extent
