Retro-Speed classic motor sport on-line
 

COMMENT   This weekend (Saturday 4 July) sees the inaugural Masters 'Four Hours' at Donington, the UK‘s version of the ever popular Spa Six Hours. Endurance in historic motorsport is a good thing, cars have to be tuned to stay the distance, drivers more circumspect. Meanwhile, the paying spectator gets great value-for-money. The race starts at 15.45.

RETRO-FACT   Originally the Goodwood Festival of Speed was a one-day event first held in June 1993, and attracted 25,000 spectators. In 1994 it became a full weekend, and two years later Friday was added. By 2003 attendance had risen to 158,000 and the organisers were forced to cap ticket sales. Now, the Moving Motor Show takes place the preceding Thursday, allowing public testing of the latest cars, both on the 'Hill' and around the surrounding countryside. Luckily, incidents have been few. But Team Retro-Speed member, marshal Steve Tarrant, was unfortunately badly injured when a car left the road at the meeting in 2000. We can report, however, that despite the wheelchair (in which he holds world endurance records) he continues to carry out his official duties, marshalling across Europe.

FOR SALE  Well known and very successful Sunbeam Alpine Mk5 for sale (winner Le Jog and Irish Classic). Chris Draycott engine, competition lsd, spares package. Great value for money. Contact Peter Scott via Retro-Speed Magazine.
