A busy as ever, maybe even busier. A great mix of favourites and plenty of “I haven’t seen an [x] before” cars.
Even the club stands seemed to be going out of the way to pull something different out of the bag. For instance…
Historic rally cars were sprinkled all over. It was great to see a Clubman Mini instead of the usual 33EJB parked up next to a London to Sydney Landcrab and the London Mexico Buff Maxi…
Hall One had some real treats for Porsche fans, this early endurance racer, the 910 was as stunning as it was tiny, it must have weighed next to nothing.
Jaguar Heritage pulled the stops out too, celebrating the life of their famous test driver Norman Dewis, with the one of a kind XK13, with C, D and E-types in the background. The stand was a joint effort between Jaguar Heritage and the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club. The Interview with Norman, playing on the stand was great to see too.
Other unusual finds walking around, including this Ex-Works RS1700 Mk3 Escort All Wheel Drive and Turbocharged…
This Fiat 130 a first for me, fantastic Italian styling with a hint of American muscle?
Singer had some amazing classics, head of the lineup was this interesting Special racer of old.
There was plenty for the Japenese fans too, GT-R’s are gorgeous and always very popular.
There were literally halls of cars for sale, this early Europa stood out, looks like the one that attends the Waterloo Classic meetups. Very original.
Silverstone Auctions never disappoint, with so many top classics for auction the sale take place over two days.
