watched the race again this year :D , but the same question always come back to me..............

why don't they ever book 558 to give a display, surely the cost is a drop in the ocean to what is paid out for that 4 daysof the event............ X(

I don't think 558 is allowed to display over the crowd which she would have to do at Silverstone. Good race though good to have bit of British success for once.

Indeed. The car is designed and built in Brackley and the engine (power train) in Brixworth, and they play the German national anthem. ;) ;)

One Olympus 301 has twice the power of a complete F1 starting grid.
XM655 has four of them, all serviceable.
