None of the three teams that always quibble over who is the 'Best UK Team' managed to finish endurance.
None of the eventual top 3 were in the top 30 last year. We shouldn't judge the teams from this year by their predecessor's performance, but that's still a remarkable statistic.
More telling: on a comparable track, the fastest UK teams drove pretty comparable autocross times to what they did last year... when the fastest UK team came 20th, being a bit over 6 seconds slower than the fastest non-UK team.

Maybe not, but actions speak louder, and the organizers have proven uniquely unresponsive to feedback over the years.

That being said, I wish them all the best, I always enjoyed coming to Silverstone.
