Was anyone there on Saturday to photograph the Safety Car spinning off the track?!?! :blush:


To be fair I thought they might have had a quicker car as the pace/safety car...especially when it had to try and give the F1 cars two warm up laps !!

These are from the HSR race earlier this year at California Speedway. The meet featured special sessions for vintage Indy cars on the oval.

#26 is the 1966 Lola T-90 supercharged Offy driven by Roger Ward at Indy that year. #35 is a 1935 Miller-Ford V8 front wheel drive.

I was standing on the exit of Redgate Tony :up: , it happened right before my eyes :eek:. Basically, they`d done one lap and it was a bit slippy out there, the car just lost it going in and ended up facing nose to nose with Andy Newall`s 8 litre Monster McLaren. Alas :rolleyes: ....I was not ready with my humble mobile phone on camera mode...Pah!! :well:

HSCC Finals day at Silverstone on Saturday.....

http://www.hscc.org......ntry List.pdf

Weather looks promising for Bev Bond's return to the cockpit in Andrew Thorpe's March 703 in race #6 for Classic Racing Cars.

In a ceremony on the podium at lunchtime, Bev will be presenting staff from Poole Hospital with a cheque for funds raised to date by his "Motor Racing Supporting Cancer Awareness in Men" Charity, so come on down and buy a polo shirt or sticker & give Bev your support! :wave:

Those three make a right pair if ever I saw one... :smoking:

The racing was excellent on Saturday, and the afternoon weather was splendid after a rather foggy and damp morning's practice.

The Historic Touring Cars provided some close racing right down the field

Dan Cox's antics in the Lotus Cortina provided much entertainment

The Guards Trophy was well supported

Michael Lyons ran away from the Derek Bell Trophy field in his Lola T400 (yet somehow finished third?!?!)

....while his mum did her usual job of holding up the safety car

Wondering if anyone know's anything about Peter Dubsky's Aston Martin 15/98 'GMX 128' seen above at Castle Combe's VSCC meeting last year, noticed the nose looks post 1937.

 

Relevant answers maybe credited and used in a forth coming blog.

 

Thanking you in anticipation of your responses.

I can only tell you what is listed in the last copy of the AMOC Register which I have (now some years old). It is described simply as a "2-seater tourer" and, at the time, belonged to a gentleman in Japan. So apparently no competition history in period.

Half their population has moved to Australia, no wonder they are flag-confused :p
