Mallory Park, Sunday July 20th, more overtaking than in a G P!

The VSCC are playing on Sunday July 20th at Mallory Park, the Edwardian race will see more overtaking in one lap than all of a Grands Prix!.

I hear rumours that there is a record grid of 28 cars for the Edwardian race, with a probable average capacity of well over 8 litres!

This is a real spectacle, loads of overtaking, my 6 litre Stutz is a midfield runner compared to some of the really 'hot' Edwardians... If you have never witnessed this you ain't seen nothing!

See you there.

I'm confused!:confused:

You've mentioned two dates, the 29th & the 18th, neither of which is a Sunday!

Maybe the VSCC still uses the Julian calendar.......

SUNDAY, 20TH JULY, 2003

Or, if you go on the 13th of July there's the Morgan Sportscar club featuring those funky Triumphs, minis, morgans and probably a tonne more old (but not quite vintage) machinery.

Aha Simon, so you will be at Charade with the Lotus X1? I will be demonstrating with a 1925 sports Alvis 12/50 ducksback the day before, it should be interesting as it is a hilly circuit and the Alvis lacks Front Wheel Brakes! See you there.

Give my love to the Bearcat won't you?

I hope to see some of you at Mallory this weekend...should be fun, and much more accessible in every way than F1 at Silverstone.

As a bonus, the world's oldest Grand Prix car that still races will be out.. perhaps someone has a photo of the 1907 GP Panhard et Levasseur? It is a seriously fast and hairy monster. The 1907 French Grand Prix was I believe the world's first race to be called a GP.correct me if I'm wrong.

Well the British Grand Prix had too much overtaking to count. Hope you enjoyed Mallory.

It was very enjoyable..I'd attended the Cadwell Meeting and whereas it smelt and sounded great I felt it was lacking something...I cant really put my finger on it but I had left feeling a little dissapointed. This meeting however more than made up for it, good crowd too.
