apart from wondering every time I log on here what the difference is between US English and UK English - is it really 'vintage' racing, or is it historic racing** aha , see below, - a numbre of us were watching the traffic an dfaces passing by yesterday at the UK's Race REtro historic racing show near COventry, and trying to read the runes of racing in season '09...
will grids be busy, or very thin?
will anyone from that strange gang, 'the general public', pay to watch the racing?
are the top level race restoration and preparation companies as busy as they say they are?
i shall tell you what teh cocnlusions are once we have been back at the show for day 2
meantime, any ideas?
Vintage in US -E means anythimng prior to about 1995 - whereas 'vintage' in UK - E, specifically means pre-1945
Historic in Uk - E is the way we have come to distinguish ourslves from vintage, and is specifically limited to 1945-185 (when, according to the FIA, 'historic racing' finishes...) Veteran for UK - E speakers, means the period pre First W War, so we have 1/. Dawn of time to 1914 - Veteran 2/. 1918-1945 - Vintage and 3/ 1945 to 1985 - Historic
