The Jackie Stewart Classic event is on at Thirlestane Castle, Lauder. This was yesterday but it is on today, too.

fantastic collection of Jackie Stewart's racing cars - including 3 of his Tyrell's. JYS was there himself - driving one of his cars in a sprint display with many other racers. Event was mainly to raise money for Race for Dementia research - JYS's wife suffers from dementia.
