    I generally reduce my image size to about 2000x1600 pixels prior to attaching. That seems to make things smooth and quick.

    Silverstone Classic - News and Photos

    Friday's advance party. I'm sure that today will be somewhat busier! Bring ear defenders or plugs - the grids are massive and some of the cars are LOUD. The Lola T70s in the Masters Sports Cars are particularly stunning - just watching the drivers set off down a straight, give the car another gear and leap forward again is properly impressive! Here in Oxford (only thirty miles away) the ground is already dry as it was rather thirsty. Yesterday evening's rain was the first round here since May 30th. Simon

    Sucker Mounts

    Whilst I was running course car on last Sunday's Maharajah's Tour, I had a rally plate on the front of my car. As I often take part in tours and have to carry plates, yet not always in cars with bumpers or grilles to which to attach the plates using cable ties, I have bought suction mounts. I got mine from http://www.suctioncupsdirect.co.uk/ They work well and I have personally tested them to 95mph without mishap (on private land, of course). Reading through the website, they suggest many other applications that could be of use to WSCC members on the cars or around the home. Simon

    I ran as course car on Craven Motor Club's Maharajah's Tour that took in 65 miles in south Oxfordshire (from Postcombe next to the M4O to Stoke Row that is between Wallingford and Reading) yesterday morning. I took the Entries Secretary of the event round with me and Bryan was mightily impressed with the Eleven a s a mode of transport on a sunny summer day. He is a very experienced rally co-driver but has not been in a car without a roof for many years. We had no issues with bottoming out along the way and all the potholes seemed to be concentrated in one, two mile long, section of road that the organisers had pointed out in the roadbook. Nearly 50 cars took part, from an Austin 7 saloon to a Ferrari Daytona. The run finished at the Stoke Row Motor Sport Club's annual car show where there were another 200 classic and sports cars in attendance, plus a good display of racing cars. There was another Eleven there - I had a good chat with Andrew, the owner of the Lotus liveried car ( a tribute to his racing hero, Jim Clark). To be parked next to a red BMW 2002Tii was a proper throwback to me as I used to stage rally such a vehicle 30 years ago It turned out to be a very hot day indeed so the shade of the refreshment tent was very welcome. I'll have to go over the Eleven and clean out al the road and showground dust ready for next weekend at Silverstone. Simon

    I was at Kimbolton as well. I went with V6Clio.net so had chilly air-con on the way home I didn't see anyone by the Westies when I drifted by in the morning. An excellent day out with loads of interesting cars and plenty of other things to see. Simon
