    True, there were some interesting exhibitions at BTCC Brands hatch and the Goodwood Revival.
    There was one grid at Goodwood had a small fortune in cars starting, they drove them like they stole them!
    Saw one going backwards across the grass at around 100mph. Recovered it and rejoined to my surprise.
