The Masters website mentions a warning about some dimensions of Dunlop's and Avon's tires being not available. I dont know what kind of cars could be impacted.

Be warned...I am currently in the middle of a 4 day event at Silverstone and security is much tighter than previous years. I doubt a race car in the back of the truck will enable you to talk your way in

There was mention in the instructions that due to the increasing levels of theft at race meetings, plus of course recent terrorist activity, security at the Classic will be 'tight'. That's fine by me as long as it doesn't impact us getting in and moving around during the weekend!

May be scrutineering will include a search for some "illegal" parts…*
Cant imagine that! Has boxing been added as a historic discipline since Monza?

What happened at Monza?
There was a punch up in the pit lane a few years ago at the classic between 2 teams.

Monza- a thieving individual was apprehended in a team trailer and probably came to regret choosing that particular one......

All hearsay, of course!

I'm afraid to say that a few of the drivers had wallets and cash stolen at Spa whilst out racing. Very sad, We left a few euro's out just inside the truck door and one of the crew stayed behind to try and catch them red handed. The horse had long gone.

Well, I started out 6th reserve and today got promoted to a starter having edged up the grid one slot at a time over the last month or so. It's exciting this motor racing innit?

Crikey Colin,

Another couple of weeks and you might have got an automatic pole position!

Well, I've made it to the 'holding area' ready to get in at 1200, after a rubbish journey- must be slowest ever to Sillystone from base. The ever increasing traffic levels will drive me (no pun intended) into emigrating to a desert island before I'm much older....

Oh, and it's cold, windy and raining!

Moose, 'passes' for competitors are in fact full weekend wristbands, and nothing spare in this camp, I'm afraid.
