Sandown Historic Races 2017

It has been some time since I had been to a race meeting of any kind at Sandown to spectate in fact the last time was 2014, again, for the Historic Races! This was a really great day filled with fantastic cars, old friends and competitors. After my visit to Sandown a few weeks ago it was good to get back there to watch and see what people do and approach the circuit! I must admit there were times that I cringed to see how incredibly cautious some of the drivers were!

There were 12 x F5000’s, a March73S that was an ex Niki Lauda / Jody Scheckter car, plenty of Sports cars and open wheelers and of course the Touring cars! John Bowe was kept busy having a drive of a F1 March and a Matich F5000 in consecutive races!

I had a lot of my time there Looking at the displays, talking to many old friends and seeing the quality of and interesting cars both on display and in the car park! These days always  bring out interesting cars and people!   It never ceases to amaze me at the level of presentation with the competing cars in all the categories it is a joy to see and hear these cars in such a great condition! Saturday which is the only day I will be able to attend unfortunately was mainly a day of practice testing and qualifying with the majority of races Sunday.
