Re: Circuit up-date

As an ever hopeful entrant in the Donington Rce I have received 4 electronic tickets. I don't have that many supporters even after discounting my disloyal family who prefer Sailing, Wild water swimming and Football.

Quentin

for the many who travelled to the Le mans Classic and to those fortunate to have driven in the races. I heard today the Quentin English died after a short illness.
