* The much-hyped Grand Prix Live event, which ran in troubled circumstances at Donington Park last May, has collapsed with debts of more than £1 million. Plans to incorporate the event into the Silverstone Classic foundered in December.
* The Cooper Monaco ‘King Cobra’ recently raced by Chris Phillips and Barrie Williams has moved into the ownership of Morgan ace Keith Ahlers. He plans to race the Ford V8-powered car in Sports Racing Masters events.
* The stunning V8-engined Daf Oldsmobile Super Saloon was on show at Autosport International after a 4000-hour rebuild. The car, owned by Tony Hazlewood, was one of the more way-out Super Saloon racers of the early 1970s.
* At the age of 76, Ford Escort rally driver Roy Edwards will run a 1965 Ford Mustang on selected asphalt rallies this year. He hopes to give the car its debut run on the Welsh Rally in May, having competed on the very first event in 1964.
* Faced with a potential bill of £400,000 for barrier improvements, the Chimay circuit in Belgium will not host historic racing in 2008. The work is needed to meet requirements of the RAC Belgium. Requests for funding are being submitted to regional government.
