Yes, indeed. Practice shot, although I am slightly confused by the number of spectators around Gerard's in the background for a practice session. Was it that well attended?
Yet another thumping F5000 shunt...
Given how long ago it was, I am somewhat baffled as to how well I can remember it - strange what the mind retains for no apparent reason. I have vivid recollections of a beautiful sunny morning which was followed by a bitterly cold afternoon. I started the day at the hairpin and, via a trip to the paddock, watched the racing from the outside of Gerard's.
Richard Scott had been sacked by McKechnie and his Durex sponsorhip was "transferred" to the John Turner Lola T330 with black Durex letters applied - all very odd. The T400 was driven by Bob Evans, despite the constant rumours of it being down to be raced by Keijo Rosberg. The car was still decked out in full Durex livery, however.
What I remember most though - apart from the afternoon cold - was the difference in sound of the three V6 entries i.e. Jones (RAM March), Purley (Lec Chevron) and Walkinshaw (Hermetite March).
What did Leech hit or was there a component failure?
