Just spent a throughly enjoyable half hour browsing your great images. I particularly like the shots of Jim Crawford. I am currently writing his biography. It would be great to hear from you.

Does anyone have by any chance the track results for 1985. I owned and ran a Caterham 7 driven by Ian Gardiner (spelling). 1600cc class. Won every race and held the track record 1985.

The place lives on! I was there on Sunday for a sprint comp, using the main straights, hairpin and the lefthander, and a bunch of footpaths. Lots of fun in a GT-R
One of my very early memories, (maybe 1970?) was standing under some trees, watching my dad drive around in his MGB-GT. So being back there and racing too, was a bit of a dream-come-true. I just wish my dad could've been there.
Maybe he was

Great pictures , The likes of the escorts , firenzas , etc are still amazing to look at , love that low agressive look they have , any idea where the body kits where made for them ? . They just had a rawness , sound and smell that you dont get with modern racing cars ..
