He also records that day as having organisational shortcomings.
(The RAC Championship showed some interest in Longleat in the late 90s but, to the relief of the regular competitors in the two usually oversubscribed days, it came to nothing).
Longleat was effectively lost in recent years, following it's re-opening by Woolbridge Motor Club in 1990, becuase the Estate would only offer late season dates that failed to provide enough daylight to run an acceptably sized entry.
My suggestion of running the roadgoing entry in the dark failed to attract support!
