Thirty years ago an embryonic motoring journalist called RICHARD HESELTINE queued up to get into Silverstone for the first race of a new sports-racing formula Group C.

The Editor has been warned to fend off story pitches about Studebaker Starlites. Richard needs to write them as he has his eye on an Alfa Junior Zagato...
