Silverstone TT 1984

The number 1 Jaguar. Drovandi, Cremer and Pirenne drove this Luigi Alfa Romeo.
Lombardi and Francia shared this Jolly Club car... ... while we wouldn't see this other Jolly Club car again this weekend.
Hartge brought two cars: this one for Enge... ... and this one for Vojtech.
This is a second Drury Alfa, either reserve or not qualified. A BMW 635 for Haezebrouck, probably a non-qualifier as well.
The engine and the whole car: the MG Metro Turbo, one of the many Leyland cars in the race.
Practice pictures. The number 1 Jag: Heyer and Walkinshaw.
Calderari and Sears drove #2. Number three was driven by Percy and Nicholson, here followed by the #27 Volvo GTM car of Delcourt, Dieudonné and Baert.
Two Schnitzer cars: the usual #4 car with Stuck and Quester, a modest #5 for Ravaglia and Danner.
Grano and Müller Jr shared this BMW Italia 635...
... Kelleners and Brancatelli the other.
There were quite some Rovers present as well. Three works cars, here the #19 Pond/Schlesser car.

Felder and Hamelmann a private 635; good to see Weisberg still sponsoring a race car.
This looks like Sawyer-Hoare's car, but I can't find him in the entry list. The second GTM Volvo; this is the Pirnay/Nčve car.
The Soper/Hahne Rover. Sportpromotion: this is the Volvo of Granberg and Elgh.
Yet another Volvo for Stureson and Persson. hi Starion: another one not on my entry list.
This British Scirocco was driven by Morris, Beacham and Postins.
The familiar Audi 80 for Arlt and Hölscher.
Pole: Walkinshaw and Heyer. Second: Percy and Nicholson.
Row 1 and row 2: Three Jaguars and a Rover at the front.
First BMW on row three, while the Schnitzer car was down in row 6.
... and the're away!
Some hairy action going into Woodcote for the first time.

The bunch jostle for position into the chicane at the end of lap 2. Weaver/Thackwell. BTCC regular James Weaver was partnered by Mike Thackwell for this race.
Drovandi/Cremer/Pirenne. Drovandi spins after contact with a VW Golf.
Pond/Schlesser. Another outing for British rallyman Pond in the works Rover. Kelleners/Brancatelli. The winners splashed through the rain to win.
But the coulds thickened and it became dark... This BMW (Dorchy/Ballot-Léna) trails catch fencing as a result of being the first spinner in the downpour that left six wrecks at Woodcote corner.
And then... mayhem at Woodcote...

From a different angle. Only four cars are parked in the wall at the moment (!), and the car on fire is that of Williams. The Voitch/Enge BMW is just coming into view backwards, but he managed to stay out of the wall.
"Regenmeister" Stuck had to hand over to Quester just as the rain started to fall. It sure looked dark.
And wet: this Jag survived and finished second.
A Terry Drury Alfetta chasing I guess Clark and Sutherland.
Lindström and Olofsson finished sixth...
... while this Golf fell apart somewhere.
