'Scorchio' sums up both the weather and the racing at Donington Park last weekend.
A full programme of 10 races, which included The Historic Seaman Trophy celebrating its 70th Anniversary, included on the grid a wonderful entry of 6 ERAs.
Large crowds turned out, not only to enjoy the weather and some superb racing, they were also invited to a lunchtime grid walk. The opportunity to get up close to these magnificent machines in full race trim and talk to the drivers has been an inspired innovation by the VSCC in recent times.
