Question UK - Classic Cars magazine appearance - Who was it?

Spotted in the March 2013 issue of Classic Cars in a 2 page photo spread [p6-7] of the Brooklands New Year's Day gathering, in the background amongst the (mostly British) vehicles - Jaguars, Minis, Triumphs, Fords and the odd Ferrari, Alvis, Aston etc rowed up on the circuit banking is...

...a citrus Insight.

Chapeau to whoever it was who got in - bet they've got a story to tell.

Anybody know who it was??

Would this be it, still don't know who owns it but hopefully someone will now recognise it.

Yup, that's the same car.

Incidentally, love the comment "Look more like a concept car than a regular one".

Thanks 'UFO' - mystery solved!

That car is in Twickenham I think, so Brooklands is very local.
