Silverstone Circuit - Thursday 22nd August 1991

Finally, English Weather! That means sky opened its sluice gates. It was raining. Not a normal English drizzle but several voilent downpours!

But, to order, just before departure at 07:30 from Andover, it stopped. Lynne Godber could start the caravan with at least 24 Zs. On the motorway we made a good ‘average' as well as on the roads we took after Oxford junction.

Once agin, not one car got lost, a fact I am attributing to to two circumstances: the ‘Leader of the Pack' and the English ‘crossing system', the roundabouts. No traffic lights and signpost that can be interpreted by everyone.

We arrived at Silverstone and, after lining our Zs up in the pits, we had a briefing for all those who wanted to test their cars at the Formula 1 circuit. It was not a race, we were only to run some fast laps, no more, no less.

The circuit driving was eventful and some didn't adhere to the instructions, that said, no damage was sustained at the circuit, however one Z was totally wrecked on its way home from Silverstone. Ironically, the driver was behving himself and slid on wet leaves.

In the afternoon it was the Concours d'Elegence competition. The members of the Jury were:
