Former Champ at Silverstone Test

Yesterday afternoon I had to pop into Silverstone Circuit to deliver some parts to a customer who was testing there.

I discovered an amazing selection of cars taking part in a pre-season track day, these cars included ex. F1 cars, several former Le Mans winners and even a few BTCC cars from the 80s & 90s.

As I wandered through the garages having a quick nose and catching up with some old friends & customers, I bumped into 1978 British Hillclimb Champion David Franklin.

Since retiring from the hills in the mid-80s Franklin has become a serious historics racer, and one of the go-to guys if you have a beautiful, rare & valuable car that you want to see used to the max but without it incurring unnecessary damage.

Franklin was at Silverstone testing a gorgeous Aston Martin DB4.
