Sir, Your cover may have changed, but the quality of the contents remains as high as ever.
I applaud in particular Simon Taylor’s Notebook column in the November issue regarding HSCC meetings. I would also encourage a visit to a VSCC meeting, where you will feel welcome and will not be charged a fortune for the privilege of attending. At Donington Park access is also available, free of charge, to the infield, the pits and the paddock
I was also delighted by the article on Scott Mansell, surely a star of the future. Having contacted his team to congratulate them on his recent performance at Donington Park I am disappointed to read that his lap record, made as you point out sans ‘driver aids’, has been beaten by a fully equipped F2002 F1 Ferrari. But at least the Ferrari certainly looked and sounded the part, and unlike at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, it was accessible.
Long may your quality publication continue.
