Matters of the Moment  Spa Summer Classic this weekend 24-26 June is followed just seven days later by Le Mans Classic. Then a deep breath before the action moves to Zandvoort on 15-17 July. Nearer to home, the HSCC is at Brands Hatch (9/10 July), Motor Racing Legends at Snetterton (16-17 July) and then HSCC again, this time organising the Gold Cup Meeting at Oulton Park.

After a brief lull we then have The Classic,  (26-28 August), Goodwood Revival (16-18 September), Castle Combe Autumn Classic (24 September) and Spa Six Hours (30 September-2 October). There is more: HSCC is at Brands Hatch (15-16 October) and Motor Racing Legends conclude its season at Silverstone (22-23 October). The word exhaustive springs to mind. Historic motorsport enthusiasts are truly spoiled for choice.

Classic Motorsport Retro-Fact  Visiting Brooklands Museum today, it's hard to believe the Vickers VC10 (G-ARTA) powered by four Rolls Royce Conway jet engines, and now on permanent display, was actually flown into the site. Perhaps even harder to believe; Vickers built this ground-breaking aeroplane right here at Brooklands factory 25 years previously.
