That is so good to hear. I was starting to think the public were bored of motorsport in general. Thankfully it appears not.

Largest entry ever and a couple of my favourite BRM F1 cars running.

Spectating this Friday/Saturday; racing next Friday, Saturday, Sunday. See you there? Grab an ERC poster.

Full grid of 46 cars for us (weekend 2) - and now down to just 12 reserves. Handicap races Saturday and Sunday.

Looks like a great event for a driver (and ex F1 Mechanic) who was almost lost in the shadows of his countrymen at the time.

At one stage the gearbox business he was involved in was the ONLY one to use

Yes back in the 60's I introduced Howden and Cavan Riley when Cavan was working on my Hewland and they got into business as Racing Gearboxes.

That is what it is all about! Great crowd there today(Saturday). By 10am, there were more spectators at the HD track for a Saturday meeting than I have ever seen before. Certainly way more than any 'modern's' meeting including Super Tourers and any Tier 1 classes.

Love the whole atmosphere of this annual meeting. Always so friendly - especially the overseas drivers who are having a ball.

Two F1 BRMs and a Ferrari were impressive - but the lucky passengers in the Arrows 3 seater F1 car must have had a real blast, as he wasn't hanging about!
