Round 7 – Donington Park – 28 August 2011

MOTORING CLASSICS THOROUGHBRED SPORTSCAR CHAMPIONSHIP

MGCC – DONINGTON PARK

ROUND 7

The Donington meeting was a ‘late entry’ on the race programme and there had been rumours that it would be cancelled. The grid was lower than usual with a turn out of only 20 possibly due because the Morgans were missing, having one of their Championship rounds at Castle Coombe.

The grid had three D class, ten C class, four B class and three A class and included in the total were five Invitation drivers who wanted to race at Donington and joined the Thoroughbred grid. (more…)

Round 6 – Silverstone National – 13 August 2011

MOTORING CLASSICS THOROUGHBRED SPORTSCAR CHAMPIONSHIP

BDC  – SILVERSTONE NATIONAL

ROUND 6

The usually popular BDC meeting on the Silverstone National Circuit was to be a two day event celebrating the Bentley Drivers Clubs 75th Anniversary and was supported with a wonderful display of Bentleys and by many Morgans and MG’s and Vintage cars of varied and wonderful shapes. The National circuit is 1.639 miles long and we were to have a 15 minute practice and a fifteen minute race and would be racing as race No. 8 on the afternoons programme.

The weather forecast seemed to indicate rain at some point on most forecasts but apart from a shower early in the morning the day was bathed in sunshine with just a hint of a dark cloud now and again. (more…)
