One of our favourite aspects of the Revival is watching modern racing drivers come and tackle some of the incredibly array of classic, historic and vintage machinery. The gamut of reactions is a familiar one. It starts with a bit of swagger (they are racing drivers after all) mixed with a good dose of trepidation, especially after practice when they realise what a difference downforce – or rather the lack of it – makes to a car’s handing. Then there is a jaw-dropping moment as it become apparent how closely fought the racing is. Finally comes the time when they exit the car after the race and you realise from their grin that they are now hooked on historics.
