Thinking back, the ICS saloons always used to be one of the highlights of of a BTCC meeting for me- as you say, some great cars.

Nick Swift's yellow Mini was always a favourite- I've got a vague recollection of him having a really entertaining scrap for the lead with one of the V8s (John Young comes to mind, but in a Mustang, rather than the Malibu?) at a wet Brands Indy.

There were always plenty of Mustangs and Camaros around- a couple we've not mentioned so far- Nicky and Amanda Torregiani's 'his & hers' pair of Mustangs in their distinctive 'Malta National Tourist Office' colours- IIRC did they have a Lotus Cortina as well?

Yes Nick had the "Classic Mustang and Amanda had the "fastback" version, and they did have a Cortina that Norman Rickets brought (and still has) along with Simon Crompton's BMW that was a winner on many occasions.
Swifty won outright at Oulton Park in the rain as well in his rapid Mini !

I think that was the one where Bob Sherring put his Galaxie on it's roof coming out of Sear on the first lap. The race was red flagged and restarted. Note you weren't in the restart, Gordon. I wasn't there that day so don't know what happened.

I loved watching the ICS series when it came to Knockhill. Especially as it was even narrower back then before they did the upgrades.

I noticed some yellow Cortinas. The Vaulkhards ran a yellow Cortina in various historic races a few years back, same car?

Yes but Nigel's wasn't one of the Marksdane cars, his was run by John Smirthwaite. I believe he still has it as I have raced against it up to a few years back at Spa.

I'm fairly sure that Nigel Vaulkhard's was that previously entered by Sean Brown - during his ownership it was red, with Momo sponsorship. (I have a photo somewhere..... but can't find it now.)

Of a similar (or later) era, I recall Nigel Vaulkhard racing at Cadwell with the Classic Saloon Car Club in a pair of yellow Cortinas on the same day, one in Pre 65's and one Classic Thunder, presumeably with a suitably different spec.

Seeing Harvey De'ath in a Mini Cooper didn't some of these cars end up in the Heritage GT Car Challenge ? The series seemed to end when Harvey started racing a Radical based Mini !
