Not to mention that he'd had his big one at Goodwood by the time the Cortina Estate was produced.

I hadn't realised he has M7 as well as SM7

Must be worth a fortune.

Slightly off topic, but does anyone know what happened to the one-off Cortina Coupe that was built for Stirling Moss by Harold Radford?

That's the one. The photos were taken in Radford's workshops.

I've just had an email from the organisers. A decision on the event's future will be made at the end if May. There are three options:

1. A socially distanced event in the original date
2. Postponement then run as above
3. Cancellation

Good luck to them!

I wasn't certain what to make of that. Basically it said nothing new and created more confusion.

Not sure where this is going ?
The point being made is that the only way Festival will be allowed is no spectators?
Itís not going to happen as the promotors do it for profit not charity and that canít happen without punters
I may have missed something but thatís my age!

The update in full.

Keeping you up to date

We hope you are well and that you are managing to keep yourself and your family as safe as possible during these difficult times for us all.

It is an unprecedented set of challenges that we navigate our way through and with COVID-19 developments unfolding over the last few months, we have been closely following all the updates and advice given by the UK Government and other public bodies.

We were last in contact with you at the end of March about this summer’s Silverstone Classic so we wanted to get in touch with the latest status. It’s very much been an evolving picture for us all.

We are paying close attention to the developments with regard to the Government’s COVID-19 roadmap and, in consultation with their Recovery Strategy, we are currently evaluating a number of options for this year’s event. These include:

1. Holding the event on its currently scheduled dates with Government approved changes to how we run elements of the Classic to ensure a safe, socially distanced festival. In this scenario, we would extend the Early Bird offer and the option to book Car Club Display packages for a further period.
2. Postponing the Silverstone Classic from its current scheduled dates with changes to how we run elements of the event to ensure a safe, socially distanced festival. In this scenario, we would extend the Early Bird offer and the option to book Car Club Display packages for a further period.
3. Cancelling this year’s Silverstone Classic. In this scenario, one of your options would be to carry your ticket over to the 2021 event.
We will make a decision on this year’s Silverstone Classic by the end of May and will be back in touch then with details of all the options available to you. Please bear with us over the next few weeks; in these challenging times, we would like to give you every available option and ensure we find a solution that is suitable for you.

Our priority at all times is the safety and wellbeing of those attending our events as well as our own team and our thanks go to all of you for your continued patience amid this period of great uncertainty.

All the best,
The Silverstone Classic Team

Not convinced that any event involving large numbers of spectators is going to be possible until there is a vaccine, but that’s just a very amateur opinion.

The FIA is considering whether to run its historic championships in 2020 due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

In an open letter Paolo Cantarella, the President of the FIA Historic Motor Sport Commission, says that a decision on whether to push ahead or cancel the 2020 championships will be made by the end of June at the latest.

The FIA Masters Historic Formula One and FIA Masters Historic Sports Car Championships have only three events left on the current calendar, starting at the Silverstone Classic (31 July-2 August) before races at Zandvoort and Spa in September.

Especially an event where a large part of the 'show' is put on by other attendees (ie. people turning up in their classic cars and displaying them) - let alone needing unpaid racers and marshals to turn up as well.
