The Revival always pays tribute to a historically significant motor sport great, but this year, it was a whole organisation in the spotlight.
Ecurie Ecosse, the Scottish racing team founded by David Murray in 1951, was remembered with track parades of vehicles associated with it on each day of the meeting. This privateer outfit’s most famous achievements included wins at the 1956 and 1957 Le Mans 24 Hours – rather against the odds, given its shoestring budget.
The metallic blue Jaguar D-types that made these wins possible starred, but didn’t eclipse the team’s famous Commer TS3 mobile workshop/car transporter, which enjoyed a rare track outing, accompanied by a 1950 Bedford K-Series van.
Three-times F1 champion, Sir Jackie Stewart, joined the vehicles on their laps, and anybody wearing tartan enjoyed a grid walk to see the machines and their drivers up close before they set off on this most Scottish of celebrations.
Former mechanic Ron Gaudion took part in Ecurie Ecosse’s parades. Classic fans get up close to the Ecurie Ecosse cars on the starting grid.
