Hi Iain. Great photos and brings back lots of memories from my many visits in the 60's and 70's. Would it be ok to copy a few of them for my own personal use. absolutely no commercial interest with this request. In 79 I was the spectator hit by Ian McLarens car at the end of the Esses! A couple of hours in the Edinburgh Royal and back in time for the racing! My picture of it coming over the armco didn't come out for some reason!

Thanks for the great site bringing back memories from my youth down south of great cars and drivers. I am in Hampshire, England, so Thruxton is my local Circuit with many others in easy reach. The SuperSaloons of the 70's are my all time favourites, the like of which we just don't see any more - great days! It's all a bit sanitised and dull now so a lot of us are lucky enough to have seen these wonderful monsters first hand and driven in anger!
Would it be ok to add 1 photo to the Special Saloon and Modsports FaceBook page and if yes how would you like me to credit it? Thanks for the site and your time.
ps, You may know my brother Marcus from Autosport.

Yes that's my first Davrian, the blue and orange one, not sure about it being a Mk 3, I thought it was earlier, it had some ply board in it's construction!!

Yeah agreed on all counts Kenneth, hope it happens next year with more appropriate cars. They need to choose he date carefully, I suspect this years was affected by Knockhill and Goodwood being the same weekend!

Re Ingliston Revival. Anyone else of my generation who attended race meetings at Ingliston as a teenager in the 60s 70s & 80s just a tad disappointed that there wasn't more 'period' cars in attendance? Don't get me wrong, it was a wonderful weekend, stirring up superb memories for my wife & me, also our son who we took with us to every meeting since he was born in 1976! Once again thanks to Iain for this great site, keep it up!
