Hoped to meet Dino but unfortunately didn't... took two trips into the infield but otherwise was either on track or getting ready to be. Lots of seat time. Terrific event with great racing and more Britcars than you could shake a stick at. The Triumph parade lap must have been more than 100 cars, and the club corrals on the hill were full. Here's a few pics:

The motorcycle races were fun to watch and though a couple of sessions were stopped because of rider falls, no one was seriously injured.

I was there on Saturday and made one pass through your section of the paddock...I'm sure our paths will cross there again. Was a great day...especially with the cool overcast weather before noon. We left after the Cayman/GT3 race as the sun was baking us.

I did get a shot of you going into T1.

Sorry to have missed you Dino, but thanks for the photo ... it took a couple of sessions to figure out turn one. By the enduro that was a 4th gear corner and my times showed it. Yeah, Saturday was like two days in one, cool and foggy to start, hot and sunny in the afternoon. Did you happen to get photos of the parade lap or close ups of the TR250K? Saw this really nice '60 MGA hotrod at turn 6, owner built it 10 years ago.

I think there were at least three Shelby Can Am cars... there are two paddocks separated by the front straight, both were full.
There's a lot to see and it seems like most photos are of one side or the other. I only made it to the inside paddock once.

People bring cars just to display, such as this extraordinary Arnolt MG Coupe. One family ownership, 2600 original miles... a time capsule.

Yeah we hit both paddocks. I was gonna make it worth my while and didn't want to miss out on anything !! There was so much more I should've took pics of, but I was trying to be in the moment and just take it all in too !! Not the first time i've been to this, but I think I enjoyed it the most this time !!
