COMMENT   Another Bank Holiday weekend coming up spells another exciting bout of historic motor sport. Masters Festival at Brands Hatch (23-25 May) with two circuits in use or for Brits wishing some more adventure, how about the three-day Spa Classic (22-24 May)? Nearer to home Prescott is hosting its fantastic French-themed La Vie en Bleu weekend (23/24 May). On the rally front, the HERO Summer Trial will be circulating the Cotswolds (22-24 May), while the Benjafield Club will be sprinting at Goodwood on Saturday (23 May). Let's hope the weather throws up some sunshine. Hmm.

RETRO-FACT   Sicily. Fifty years ago, on 9 May 1965, the Vaccarella/Bandini Ferrari 275P/2 cruised the Targa Florio in a shade over seven hours, each lap 72km of mountain road. Fifty-nine cars started, but just fifteen finished, with top marks for trying going to Porsche (four out of the top five). Surprisingly, in 11th place overall, was the MG Midget shared by Andrew Hedges and Paddy Hopkirk, albeit it 48 minutes behind the winner.
