Nice to see you're back in harness.
I think De Cadenet was the culprit.

The winter evenings are beginning to draw in noticeably and the Seven is now in hibernation (probably). At least with the removeable battery master switch the battery won't go flat through lack of use. Time to dust of the Scalextric set me-thinks.

Stirling Moss was also involved, and his car (looks like it was hit from behind) went airborne also, but luckily landed right-side up.
Thank god no one was seriously hurt.
Maybe I'll try to scan that photo and post it later.
P.S. Anyone attending the Willow Springs race this weekend or the Coronado race in a few weeks?

I can think of little more exciting than a Seven on ice...

The same applies to fitting roll cages/bars.
As to whether or not this type of event should be fully competitive - I guess you should leave that decision up to the competitors themselves - It's their decision as to whether or not to enter the events and to how hard to drive.
Having attended may 'historic' events over the years, coz the racings better and the drivers are more friendly, there seem to be a large number of drivers who would probably agree with my point of view.
Its the same with argument as to whether or not they should risk damaging rare cars by racing them - most of the drivers/owners have the attitude that the cars where built to be raced, so they should be raced - if you leave them in a showroom they any rot away.

I noticed also that Moss was wearing his old style helmet all through the week-end, good job he didn't get thrown out too.
