    Anyone going to the Revival this weekend? If you can't make it the live stream will be worth watching

    Unfortunately? I work in the motor trade so holidays inSeptember (or March) are a no no, would love to get down but unless things change it doesn't look likely. I'll settle for the tv coverage-again.

    It's been an incredible event so far, it's such a spectacle, probably the best motor event I have been too. Data has been very patchy and been working flat out, I'll upload pictures when I get home.

    The last race from Saturday is worth a watch, where silver GT40 #37 went from the back of the grid to take 4th, and the green gt40 driven by Chris Ward won. It was the most exciting race I've seen, appalling track conditions with almost no visibility and no grip. After the race the drivers were commenting how happy they were to be alive. The yellow gt40 had a massive spin due to bringing the clutch up too quickly and breaking traction, terrifying for the driver but great to watch.

    Thanks for sharing Hubert!
    Learned a lot about Ecurie Ecosse. As I was born in 1956 in my memory some moments were missing...

    Highlights from the Whitsun Trophy are worth a watch (as is the entire race - you dont get to see the amazing battle of car 37 here, they have kept most of it out of the highlights because it was disqualified), but this includes the big spin:

    I have the impression that he ran into difficulties when preventing a collision with the 250 LM. So his success is, that "only" ohne Ferrari was "extremely second hand". Painful to see. Thanks for sharing anyway.

    Found this online, "nerve-wrecking moment a Jaguar E-Type comes into contact with an AC Cobra..."

    Cobra driven by dutch racer David Hart and his son Olivier, for me it is always a blast to see David Hart drive his racing cars on the circuit.
