What a car collection. I have to say it was of far more interest to my husband and son than to me. It's a shame Donington lost the English motor cycle grand prix.

Great way to spend a couple of hours. Superb collection of F1 cars etc. Really interesting to see how the cars developed. Added bonus is the Wheatcroft collection. Some of the restorations are amazing. Looks like they have just left the factory.
