COMMENT  May Bank Holiday at Donington was typically wet and windy, but it made the racing even more exciting. How the top drivers, such as Julian Thomas, Andy Wolfe and Simon Hadfield, maintain control under these atrocious and incredibly trying conditions is astonishing.

RETRO-FACT  Ian Appleyard (1923-1998) will forever be connected with the Jaguar XK120 (NUB 120) in which he won the Tulip Rally, the RAC Rally (twice), and with wife Pat Lyons, daughter of Sir William Lyons, a Coupe d'Or (gold cup) for three consecutive unpenalised runs on the Alpine Rally. NUB 120 is still in full working order and owned by the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust.
