This was the second VSCC meeting here since the circuit has been improved by MotorSport Vision and the wonderful weather contributed to a gloriously successful meeting. This could only be England on a sunny day in June. Many of our readers will not have had the opportunity of visiting venues such as Oulton. It is set in the pleasant rolling rural land of Cheshire and the parkland to a long gone country house forms the circuit. The house burned down long ago and there is a memorial close by the pit area to casualties of that fire. That area is remarkably unspoiled and very pleasant indeed to stick around after the meeting.

The weekend began with a most enjoyable party given by TOPS Organiser, Trisha Pilkington for her friends in the BRDC Clubhouse on the Friday evening. The first “Proper” race meeting of our vintage year is always eagerly anticipated and the event this year did not disappoint. It is amazing how well most of us scrub up for the social events.
