It's a really good event. Huge numbers of race cars and a number of huge motor homes mean paddock pandamonium but that goes with the territory I guess. Good for drivers on the historic GP circuit, and for spectators (the few that know they can see the same Revival cars and more in an accessable fashion).

I will certainly be there (tho' what in I am not sure yet - depends upon grid availability for the 18/21, bonnet etc issues with the 17 (see youtube etc)) but am co-driving a Morgan in the BRDC 500 so that'll be great fun at least.

Recommended.

I plan to be there with the full compliment - Corvette in Gentlemen Drivers, Cortina in HSCC HRSR and Elva Mk7 in the combined Sports Racing Masters/World Sportscar Masters race.

Yup,

Will be there in (gulp!) four races - the two HSCC roadsports races in the SZ, the Gentleman Drivers in the SZ, and co-driving a GTA in the HRSR.

Of course when I entered for these, I forgot about the three practice sessions as well. Busy weekend! Still, if it's hot, it's a good way to lose weight!!

Regards,

James

It's a great weekend, but sadly it clashes head on with Spa 24 Hours, and FIA GTs...

Actually you may be right. Just checked my notes and I have a question mark beside it. Apparently it is a combined WSM and SRM race so rear-small-engine cars are maybe not eligible!

The usual spectator mode, trying to keep my camera dry and one of about 6 people watching from Abbey - in fact the only one by the last couple of races! Will hopefully get around to putting some pics up on that meeting thread, eventually.

James, looks like you are going to have a great (and busy!) weekend!

Roger, looking forward to seeing the big Corvette, at last!

And (almost!) approval from John R; can't be bad!

I might go along for an hour or so! Seriously, spare a thought for all the girls and boys in orange - it's going to be three long days for them, whatever the weather. John - shall look forward to the photos and report - you see so much more than I do .......and if anybody on here needs my help, you know where I am.
