Race Retro – 25-27-02-11

I can almost smell March and that means show season is in the offing.  First up was Race Retro; usual format and suspects present as previous years, but it’s always a laugh and a chance to play racing cars.   Massive thanks to the Retro Cars & Retro Ford peoples for the magic (as always).  Here’s some quick un-edited B-roll footage from the weekend, you can check the rest out in the mag.

Home for the weekend: RC & RF stand (Thanks to everyone who came down for a chat!).

My cars of the show:

This is how we get down…

Retro Show – Santa Pod – 18-07-10 – Part #2

Turns out I dodged a bullet by not taking the KP…more on that later, but first some more pics of the weekend!

I love this KP.  It’s everything a retro should be; no frills, no £1000 wheels, no showy scene bits, no untouchable paint job; just everything you need to enjoy hooning around in an old car.  I remmember when cars were simple and fun like this….

It’s a shame it was just bunged in the public car park.

Retro Much?  No, but at least the owner parked it well out of the way…unlike the Mondeo enthusiasts group who had a stand.  Yeah, that happened.

Hux Mania – 185s on 10″s

Drag car clutch rebuild?  Yep.

Viper Bus.

Retro Show – Santa Pod – 18-07-10 – Part #1

Wow, it’s literally that time of year already:  Retro Show at the Pod; basically the penultimate show in my summer of automotive fun.  Despite the blackest most overcast sky I have ever seen the rain held off all weekend.  Unfortunately, I wussed on taking the KP (show cars hey.  I’ll be trailoring it next – loser.),racked up the Mazbo and rolled out.  More camping, more beer, more half-cooked meat later and…it was Sunday: Show day.  Pics?  OK:

Daily driver club – we do pink!

News just in: Rat-look is not cool.

Star-Sharks on a Capri?  Hell yeah! Mike, SELL THEM TO ME!

320iS – immaculate is an understatement.

Seth-o-matic – best wheels (well, trims) and car combo of the day for me.

Hux-rox (more of this car soon!)

Curborough Sprint Course: A Day At The Races #2 – 07-05-10

I took the KP out for a spin this afternoon and, after rolling about a bit down some of my favourite roads, found myself in the vicinity of Curborough; being a Sunday, I thought  I’d take a gamble and see if anything was going on.  It was, so here’s some pics!

Curborough Sprint Course: A Day At The Races

I headed up to Curborough this morning to check out a local motor club sprint.  These things always have a good mix of cars and a really laid back atmosphere; just the timg for a sunny Sunday morning.

Race Retro 12 to 15-05-09

Just got in from Race Retro after helping pack up the Retro Cars stand. What can I say, epic weekend with the guy’s from Unity Media as well as good times meeting up with good friends and people i’d not seen for ages.

Check out my preview HERE

Grabbed this quick shot as I was leaving. Nice company: Datsun 240 rally car and a Benetton F1 car: That’s just how I roll ha ha!

As soon as I go through the 300 pics I have taken I’ll throw some more up!
