Goodwood FOS 2014 "Who's driving what" list looks like this:

There's Swede Kenny Bräck driving the McLaren F1 GTR longtail, no idea who owns it or where it is kept regularly.

I believe that the car in question is owned by Lanzante Motorsport.

Sadly Klaus and his Porsches seem to have dropped off the radar over the last ten-or-so years.

The Bytzek cars look to be a mishmash of parts from what I can see. They're 96 cars upgraded to Evo parts with the 996 lights but they don't look right.

Similar Gunnar Jeanette had a few in the early 00's and the cars got put back together as GT1's but look a little off. There's a Texaco car out there which is more a Gunnar GT1 than a Porsche GT1, similarly another car with 'Hole in the Wall Gang' sponsorship that's the same. They get advertised as 911 GT1's when they're out and about though.

Didn't the Gunnar team remove the roof of one and make it into an open top prototype?

I know they did it to a 962

I know one of the Bytzek Porsches is now back in the hands of Porsche themselves, I'm struggling to remember the chassis number right now though.

I think they bought 106 and it's at the smaller museum in Leipzig, the ex-Champion car still in Champion livery.

Freisinger recently had 102 which appears to be a Bytzek car for sale.

http://www.freisinger-motorsport.de/...DESC&leistung=

I wish someone would restore it to it's original bodywork and livery but I suppose with it being upgraded to Evo spec that probably won't happen.

They've just sold the Blue Coral 101 car as well, now returned to Marlboro livery and recently spotted at the Porsche festival in Monterey.

Shame... I know Marlboro is its original livery but the car spent most of its competition life in Blue Coral colours and that was simply one of the best liveries ever.

Agreed, the Blue Coral livery was iconic to everyone who watched British GT in the 90's. I grew up forever wanting that car to win versus the Lister Storms.

It's worse now because it's not even really a full Marlboro livery, still lacking all the sponsor logos it would've worn whilst racing. Looks a bit half-arsed at the minute, though I suppose it's likely it's only just been repainted.

Silverstone Classic then, aside from the vast quantity of F1 GTR's, what else ran?

I'm sure I heard one of the Ferrari's and Porsche's crashed into each other yesterday bringing out a red flag.
