Pure magic! The perfect antidote to the head-up-the-
shenanigans of the F3 circus the previous weekend.
A well-run meeting, with a great atmosphere.
We spent an hour or more walking round the paddock on Sunday morning; it was like having all your birthdays at once - everybody we met was saying things like 'have you seen.....', 'you must look at.....'.
This was one of the few meetings where I've actually enjoyed qualifying - I could have watched those cars going round all day!
The racing was superb; as usual at an HSCC meeting, there was no pandering to the 'value' or rarity of the cars once the race started!
Highlights? So many.....
Mike Eagles surprising the exotics in the Milano.
The sheer noise made by the Bristol-engined cars.
Mark Gillies drifting the Maserati 300S through Island.
Three 250Fs racing together.
Listers than you could shake a stick at.
Seeing a BRM winning again!
The beautiful Cooper Alfa - gorgeous wheels!
.....the list goes on & on! And to top it all, Jack Brabham!
Now all we've got to do is persuade you Southerners to risk falling off the edge of the world & visit Britain's best circuit!
