If you like endurance racing but couldn’t make it to Le Mans this year, why not pop down to Silverstone this weekend for the return of the Britcar 24 Hours?

Okay, so Northants in October isn’t quite France in mid-summer, but the spectacle should be just as good.

There are four classes of racing covering everything from Moslers to Renault Clios, and it all kicks off at 4.30pm on Saturday.

If you do make it, come and say hello; I’ll be at the far end of the pitlane waiting for my turn in a Mazda MX-5.

But if Silverstone is too far to travel - and you’re still interested to see we get on - I’ll be posting updates on my twitter feed: @JamieatAutocar.
