Demonstrations of Speed

Members Meeting | Press Article 17/04/24

Shrieking ’70s sports-racing cars took to the track for the first High-Speed Demonstration of the weekend on Saturday morning. The 3-litre era produced many iconic machines, with 16 different makes and models circulating at speed, some with period drivers. A highlight for many was seeing – and hearing - the one-off McLaren-DFV M8C which was driven by Alain de Cadenet whose Ecurie Evergreen fielded that car originally. De Cadenet’s other former mounts, the Brabham F1-based ‘Duckhams Special’ and Lola T380 also ventured out on track. Former Formula Three hot-shoe Martin O’Connell put on a show aboard the dramatic-looking TOJ-Cosworth SC303, but nothing could match the Rob Hall-driven Matra MS670 for sheer noise and drama.

Also not be missed this weekend is the High-Speed Demonstration celebrating 1990s GT1 cars that raced in the original FIA GT Championship. Cars set to be steered around this historic venue include a brace of Mercedes-Ben CLK-GTR, an ultra-rare Lotus Elise GT1, a Lister Storm GTS and the fabulous one-of-a-kind Bugatti EB110 SS GT1.
