COMMENT   It was almost inevitable that with Easter, and the magnificent two-day Thruxton meeting approaching, our prolonged spell of warm weather is to collapse into dreary drizzle over Sunday and Monday. So instead of short sleeves and shades, it's umbrellas and pac-a-macs. This can only be England.

RETRO-FACT   Easter 50 years ago: The weather in London was described as 'dull and dreary', so not much changes. Further afield, and Ford pulled off a great win on the East African Safari rally, where heavy rain reduced the finishers to just 21. The BRSCC held meetings at Brands Hatch and Mallory Park, while 'club' meetings took place at Silverstone and Snetterton. On 18 April some 50,000 spectators witnessed a 200-mile race at Aintree. Jim Clark fought his way into the lead from 9th but uncharacteristically crashed out, leaving Jack Brabham to take the flag in his Brabham-Climax. Jim Clark won the F1 race at Goodwood on Easter Monday.
