Classic Silverstone

After the "comforts" of Classic Le Mans, we thought we'd do Silverstone in a bit of comfort, particularly as the forecast was for a bit of mud. Hence the new "komfy kamping" tent...
Proper sewn in groundsheet, under groundsheet and rugs on the floor! Plus a king size airbed

Here's a few pictures from the 700 plus taken at the event: (clicking on any picture will open them all up full size in a gallery format)
Practice session on Friday
Aston Martin DB6 (I think - it could be a 5)

I'm pretty sure the red and blue cars are Marcos GT's

We know what this is! TR4 attempting to pass an Aston

Classic Formula 1

Friday afternoon shift change at Dagenham, circa 1965

...and we thought the idea was to drive on the circuit!

Cortinas, Alfa and BMW 1800s round CLub corner

....hotly pursued by Mini Coopers

A very pretty Alfa Giulietta, I think?

Jaguar, C type I think, but could be a Lister


Could only be a Jaguar D type


On Saturday, we were treated to a wing walking display. Not totally sure why it is called wing walking as they appear to be securely attached

Followed by a few more pictures of cars

Big Healey

TR4 again

Escort. I had one of these, once - but mine was a humble 1100 deluxe

Aston and 250 GTO racing for real

Another 250, this time racing an E type

Alfa Romeo

and ANOTHER! 250

and another. We stopped counting the car values in this race at £50 million

Aston Martin DB2

Here's a rare one (foreground) - a Jensen
Finally,  we see the parade of Ferrari F40's to celebrate 25 years of the model's introduction. You can have any colour you like as long as it is red! Breakdown services for the weekend were provided by the AA in conjunction with Trotters Independent Traders
