A very popular win
Silverstone, July 18th
Enormous is the only way to describe the size of the organisation behind this year's British Grand Prix at Silverstone, backed by Marlboro and with the support of just about every racing enthusiast in the country, all master-minded by the RAC Motor Sports Association. The pits and paddock became a veritable young town, with motor homes, tents, marquees and trade vehicles as far as the eye could see, let alone all the competitors in the supporting races and all the cars in the parades. You certainly would not think that Great Britain was in the midst of a serious recession.
