I was there - complete with sideburns and a pack of JPS. We'd driven up from Dover in an imported old Beetle convertible- no map , we got to Northampton and followed the Goodyear balloon which , fortuitously , had , appeared . Sobering to think that this would be Roger Williamson's debut GP , and he was dead within weeks .

Lots of comment on Youtube about F1 variety then and whilst that is true in chassis , and looks , the sound was identical for nearly the whole field. As we were in peak garagista period , nearly everyone had a DFV . Only Ferrari - which at this race fielded a single , hopelessly outclassed , car , BRM (fast but unreliable ) and Tecno (great noise , no power ) broke the DFV mould .

But at least there was some noise.

And the sight of Peterson and Stewart power sliding their cars through Woodcote is majestic and thrilling.

The sound was turned up to 11 on the Mugen Honda V10 at Silverstone GP in 1997 . That bd Pedro Diniz was responsible for perforating my left eardrum !
