If you wanted to learn a little more about the RS200, the designer, Tony Southgate, has a book ‘From Drawing Board to Chequered Flag’ which has a section dedicated to the design of the RS200 and why it had all kinds of interesting stuff on/in it. The book is mostly about Group C Le Mans and Formula 1 but it has Read more

The Harrier LR9 never got much love. Considering it beat the McLaren F1 GTR in some races and won quite a few British GT races outright, nobody paid much for them and they didn’t take off (pun intended) as a road car. Like a few of the entries, the name killed it. Conversations would regularly consist of: Read more

Starting in 3rd Gear instead of 1st! Also did this in my first ever race (along with spinning twice). Learnt to stop just short of my grid position now and creep up in first gear to make sure its in correctly. A digi dash with gear indicator is another cure for this.

Gripping the wheel far too hard and spinning as a result when you can’t react quickly enough to catch the car. My first ever race was televised live and my girlfriend and her parents were watching for me and the only coverage I got was for spinning off - which I did twice.

This is ‘the’ Healey 100S involved in the big wreck at Le Mans in ‘55. My dad was lucky enough to be driving it at the Goodwood Revival this year. It is not set up in full race trim so is totally off the pace of the Coopers and Jaguar C-Types but he said it handles and stops exceptionally well.

Great list, I love Cobras, Bizzarinis and Jensens. The AC 428 Frua should make the list though. British chassis, Italian Frua body and 428ci Ford V8. AC made 66 hard tops and 28 drop-heads before the fuel crisis killed it. I think the best car ever made but I am massively biased!

Great shots as ever. Good to see you got some shots of the Daimler, will need to pop in and get some full res copies of them if OK with you? The owner and driver will appreciate them big time!

Not exactly - my username might give away my involvement. I normally drop in for the x-mas lunch so maybe see you there!

I have been lucky enough to race at Cadwell twice in the last 2 years . It really is the mini Nürburgring. So much faster than you think, and little room for error through Hall bends, Hairpin and Barn. Gooseneck (the slight right then hard left going steep downhill) is a regular spot to get it wrong and the first time Read more
