With the congested schedule also this weekend is MG Live which includes the GTSCC which has a reasonable grid along with Masters in Austria too though that included a single digit HGPCA grid sadly.

I will give the whole Thruxton weekend a miss despite having bought tickets and enjoy two days of real clubbie racing at Castle Combe. Packed grids and Mini 7 races will be far more entertaining.

There doesn't seem to be a entry list for the Masters this weekend which is unusual.

Mmm, I've been hanging fire getting a ticket this year, I'll be using my season ticket at Brands. It's a shame as I love Thruxton but sadly many of their events seem to fizzle out. The Easter F2 reunion was a damp squib a few years ago.

Some of the grids have decent sized entries, mainly the HRDC ones and JRT.

MRL's are slim but they often are outside of the Donington, Classic and Gold Cup meetings.

However I note Mark Burton's Commodore is now on the HTCC entry so that's something I'm really looking forward to seeimg and hearing.

They promised five hour-long races and so I paid £36 for advanced tickets. For these five races( now only four) they have assembled a grand total of 44 cars. On their website today they still describe the event as top flight historic racing. That’s just lying.

I will be sorry to miss the JRT and I feel really sad for Thruxton but still talking up the event in that way is unforgivable.

How about the clash with Le Mans itself? Surely the Venn diagram of drivers in historic racing/people who like the 24 is almost one circle!

That makes Thruxton look busy. Very strange days. The Equipe GT grids and GTSCC at Silverstone are all very strong.

Also given the fact there is an abundance of opportunities to race on the GP Circuit nowadays in a Pre 66 car.

Be interesting to see how the new Snetterton Historic does for entries.

The race long battles for the lead in the Jack Sears and Jochen Rindt Trophy were the highlights of the day. The MRL races were as expected, unfortunately.

I thought the fifties sportscar race was quite entertaining with Ben Adams beating the bigger cars in his little Lola Mk1 and a good scrap between the first three RAC Woodcote Trophy contenders.

Just five cars for the Pre '63 GT /Jaguar race. For one hour. Presumably problems for Delta and Dr Bob in qualifying.

Highlights today were the first few laps of the Single seaters, Alfas and Midget & Sprite races. The other races were dire.
A lot of people through the gates at the event but Thruxton/BARC need to have a serious look at the event as lots of the public were less than impressed.
