The Red Bull Circuit, Austria's Formula One Track in the green hills of Styria saw the "Ventilspiel" event of classic sports and racing Cars driving on the track - against the time and not each other. There where a lot ofcars to see in action - from open wheel historic Formula to a pre-war Riley, GT and sportcars. Since I was not driving this year, I finally found time to got around the track, have been at corners I only know from on track and found time to make some photos.

I have found this photo online (see citation), showing a Triumph Spitfire MkIII (1300ccm), as far as I can tell, completely stock, small 3.5 steel wheels, bumper, windscreen and a normal ride height. The rear axle on massiv negative camber in the typical "tuck in". Only the origin of the photo, the bumper on the door and the driver's helmet let you believe, that this car, in this spec was actually taking part in a race.

The 1928 Frazer Nash Saloon Car is one of the craziest cars to be thrown around Goodwood - racing successfully against 2-seater specials in the Brooklands-Trophy, is this the story behind.
