Some cars came back to circuits in 2003 as part of the Formula One Race Car Entrants (FORCE) package, but it was in 2004 that a lot more cars became really re-acquainted with their old haunts following the launch of the Derek Bell Trophy, backed by the UK's Historic Sports Car Club. This book will remind readers of both periods when the cars ran in anger.
