Silverstone Classic 2018

I tend to start most posts with a nod to the weather, usually poor, that I encounter on my jaunts to different motoring events. The idea that as a nation we’re obsessed with the weather may have some truth but with such unpredictability you can excuse us for being bemused when the weather fails to […]

It’s addictive viewing

Yes, more Classic Sports Car Club at the start of May. At the mighty Silverstone this time. Fantastic access and organisation on a brilliantly sunny day. The Silverstone Wing was open so we had a great vantage point looking down on the start/finish straight which was a first for me. Again the Future Classics and […]

Classic Sports Car Club

This weekends sees another round of the Classic Sports Car Club (CSCC) so it’s about time I uploaded the best shots from the round at Snetterton a few weeks ago. I say a few but it was only a month ago at the beginning of April. Although you wouldn’t think it looking at the photos, […]

Spirit of Munro

I was lucky enough to see the Spirit of Munro in person. A stunning tribute to land speed record legend Burt Munro and his Munro Special, famous for breaking the under 1000cc speed record at Bonneville in the late 60s.

Pre 1950 Grand Prix cars at Donington

The two HGPCA Nuvolari Trophy races at this year’s Donington Historic Festival were arguably the most entertaining from a spectators view, added rain during the race on Saturday of course added further to the excitement as priceless cars from the era hurtled round the famous circuit celebrating the 80th anniversary of the 1936 Donington Grand […]

Chassis 904-055 Carrera GTS

One of my all time favourite sports cars and in vibrant Dutch Orange the ex Team Holland Porsche 904 GTS chassis number 904-055. As with all carrera 904s this particular car has a racing pedigree to be proud of. Campaigned by Ben Pon (son of Ben Pon Sr. the ‘grandfather’ of the Volkswagen van) from 1964 with […]
