As the dual carriageway empties, the ‘magnificent seven' begin playing tunes with their engines, the Giacchino Colombo-designed 3.0-litre V12s in the earlier cars duelling with the rampant turbocharged rush of the later ones. Evans, meanwhile, is watching it all from his Phantom. At the Haynes museum he gambols from car to car, making sure everyone's still enjoying themselves. It's hard to imagine how anyone couldn't be. A party of schoolkids swamps him. One of their teachers asks me if I think that the fact that they're from Sexey School on Lusty Hill will make for a good radio moment. Undoubtedly.
