    ... it's actually pretty easy, but look how many spectators there are and how little there is in the way of barriers, etc..

    To be fair Cadwell hasnt changed that much due to restrictions on the circuit being able to develop more run off. To make Barn corner safer they had to buy land from a farmer and that took years. The erectasil barriers used to be a few feet from the track edge, now its got a bit more room

    My old man remembers there being a barn at barn corner... they used to open the doors to allow a bit more run off.

    I remember there being a massive tree on the inside of the track up near coppice.

    My first ever day as a corner commander for Bemsee was at Barn .. Dave Stewart took me aside in the bar the night before and said he thought i was up to it after only 6 months in orange and dont let him down ... got there and thought "this will be interesting as everything that hits the barrier either goes under it or will bounce back on track"

    I wasnt far wrong and it was a busy weekend and from then on i was running one of the busy corners at each circuit we went to

    I wouldn't have liked to live in that time. Every man in the photo has a suit on. No freedom of choice of clothes.

    The barn was still there in the 80s, I'd forgotten the tree.
