Great Pics Dave ! (envious!)
No doubt from my Favourite haunt !
“Duxford” (Spits, etc)
Had to ask
Went in “photography mode” again today … as in … cameras and lenses and monopod and food and water … and all in an effing big backpack that would look totally wrong.
A somewhat unexpected experience @ GRM!
As a result there’s some significant RAF and Aviation links that are used to support the event. (See the Spits/Hurricants Goodwood Revival Meeting).
What I wasn’t expecting was Frank Whittle’s (now Lord Dyson owned) 3rd prototype jet engine from 1943 … a mere 75 years old, and still working!
(Finger over left mic for first 30 secs didn’t help. I rarely use this camera for video.)
I stumbled onto the Revival on tv, just in time to see over £200,000,00 worth of E types etc having a real ding dong of a race. No holds barred, plenty of contacts, the BEST motor race I’ve seen. Thrilling to watch. Put the Procession of Formula 1’s in they’re place.
£200k is cheap! One race had >20 cars each worth more than £10m.
Amazing photos @OzoneVibe - thanks for sharing mate
The whole vibe (excuse the pun!) reminds me of Beamish - anyone ever been?
And seeing those MkI Cortinas reminded me of my Anglia 105E
School trip 1978. Brilliant day
Sorry, missed a nought, should have been TWENTY MILLION !
Ah - still, a grid of E Types < 1 Ferrari.
