COMMENT   I'm suffering withdrawal symptoms, what with it being only one week before Christmas and not a single historic motorsport event, apart from Mallory Park (Boxing Day), left in the diary. Of course, I could always go shopping and buy myself a car. Now let's see? a nice Porsche 944 in guard‘s red. Great idea, and just room to park it under the tree. I feel better already.

RETRO-FACT   1960 Boxing Day Brands. This full day of racing provided the ideal hang-over cure for us South Londoners. On 26 December 1960 Jim Clark romped home, leaving the opposition for dead in the Formula Junior John Davy Trophy, while the saloon car outing went to the magnificent Jaguar 3.8 Mk2 of Sir Gawainne Baillie, with a host of 850cc Minis fighting it out for a class win. Even Pat Moss had a go, her first ever race. Those were the days.
