I don't think I can make Saturday (except maybe the Sports and Saloon race at 16:50), but plan to be there all day Sunday (well except for the first and last Legends races obviously :))

I went through on Saturday to see some racing.
The big Ferraris & Porches were out practising for tomorrow's GT races.

Bumping and grinding at the Hairpin.

A young lad called "Hill" eventually won the Formula Fords. I remember seeing his father doing the same thing. :shock:

The Ferraris are nice - but I would love to have a Porche.

Nice photos. What shutter speed were you using? Should maybe try turning it down a notch or two to get a bit more motion blur in the background and wheels.

I take it that's a misprint and that you meant his grandfather :) ........or am in serious bother?

Josh Hill is the son of Damon Hill, who did race Formula Fords at Knockhill in the 80s. :wink:

I know I'm old - but not old enough to have seen Graham Hill. :evil:
