Over four-hundred competition cars rocketed around the 2.4-mile track ranging from twenty-three original turbo-era Formula One cars to Group C Le Mans cars with Ferrari 250 Breadvans, Jaguar E-types and Aston Martin DB4GTs and everything in-between included. The air was pollenated with the scent of exhaust fumes mixing with cooking food as spectators relaxed on the grass and in deckchairs enjoying the weekend in the very unexpected yet welcome sun. The monstrous engines caused vibrations that tickled the soles of your feet whilst airplanes, including a Spitfire, roared through the skies above.
The event wasn’t just about the racing, though. Upon arrival, each visitor was assigned to a school house, where spectators and drivers attempted to gain points for their respective house. Each of the houses was headed by a racing legend; Nicolas Minassian for the Aubigny house, Anthony Reid for Methuen, Emanuele Piro for Torboloton and Jochen Mass for Darnley. Drivers won points for their house through triumphs on the track, and spectators participated in fun games and challenges such as a tug-of-war, egg and spoon race and cake decorating. After a weekend of challenges and competitions, the winning house was Anthony Reid’s Methuen.
