Well, what a brilliant day - I can't get the grin off my face after such a fantastic meeting. The first race splashing about on the wet track was fun and the final (where at least half the crowd stayed to the end) was brilliant fun and I ended up having a great fight with Frank for the last few laps.
The crowd were great, especially at the hairpin on the slow-down lap - they really seemed to be very into it all and clapped everyone back in (the donuts helped, I'm sure!) so hopefully if we converted a few people to be interested in coming back in a couple of weeks then it'll all be good. Just watched the live Setanta coverage of the two races - brilliant coverage, especially of the final!
As said elsewhere Mike, great races and yes I was surprised at how many people stayed. (some people left before the BTCC Race 3, which I just do not see the logic in the money it costs...). Hopefully as you say some people might come back and discover that the meeting doesn't have to be a high profile one to produce great racing.
I was having my doubts at the beginning of the day about the weather, was freezing to start with but just getting really nice as the day ended. Decided to just sit in the car for a while (with a view of the hairpin) as the people queuing were getting nowhere fast. When I left I thought I'd avoid the usual Kincardine Bridge MASSIVE queues only to get stuck on the M90 before the Forth Bridge. Some people were even getting out of their cars for a fag we were sitting so long. I ended up taking the Dunfermline cut off and going to the Kincardine Bridge !
That was one fantastic day, big well done to everyone involved in Legends for putting on such a good show, and it was clear where I was at the hairpin in the final that the crowd loved them The tv coverage was fantastic as well, seems so strange seeing one of our club series given the big-series coverage but wow it looked good Biggest legends field ever, I heard a few people say, and it looked fantastic on tv, was really good racing all down the field. Well done everyone involved!
Ha! Fantastic picture. Cracking racing too, all of it, and live on Santana telly for the Legends! If that doesn't do something for spectator numbers I don't know what will. The commentator sounded pretty impressed too...he'd completely ran out of superlatives
Can anyone tell me how we can get a copy of the Santanta coverage of the weekend legend racing, was busy clearing away and travelling home so did not see any of it. A fantastic weekend for us all, the Legends did "what it says on the tin", the great pocket rockets delivered. The acrobatics were awesome. Hope the crowd appreciated it.
