I wanted to go to see the Group C's and the historic Le Mans racers (lola T70's and the like) but couldn't really justify the cost this year. If I don't go to Le Mans then i'll be there next year.

The Group C cars where awesome at Le Mans in '98. I have a couple of vid's of the Jaguars screaming into the Ford Chicane.

Why they ever stopped Group C is beyond me, simply the best group/class of racing cars ever.

I went on the saturday, it was ace, i took loads of photo`s. i even went in to the pits and took some close up photo`s of all the le mans cars.

i could put some on here but they make it that awkward its off putting. i took about 150 photo`s all together. loads of awesome cars.
i would recommend going next time.

i also took a photo of an old alfa that had zagato badges on the side, i dont even know what it was.

i did go down with my friend in his 360 modena and we parked in the ferrari owners club section inside the track, so that made it better.

Yes it was another great silverstone classic! We were nosing around the Sauber C9 in the pits and ended up crossing the pitlane and watching most of one of the races from the pit wall! Then we were asked if we had passes....oops!!
