Epic Targa Florio Ford GT40 in action: the noise!


This Ford Falcon 289 needs some work to get on the tracks.


We arrived saturday morning when it was cold and dampy. Almost no rain the whole weekend!


Those Morgans do get around.


Scuderia Ferrari Alfa Romeo must be one of the oldest cars around.


Good to see HEM6 back on track. Oliver Bryant driving.

Talbot Lago yum.


Lotus yum.


Mazda RX7 turbo had some lag. Chevron B8 benefits and puts his foot on.


Woodcote Trophy grid packed amazing cars.


Always time for a chat and a snap: Graf Marcus von Oeynhausen, owner of the Bilster Berg track.


Proper TVR Griffith 400 shaving the wall.


Monster 7 litre Thunderroad RAM Cobra with Nascar heads: straight lining like a missle from hell.


Great One Hour Barry Sidery Smith memorial race. RIP Barry.

Great photos!

Do you have a full gallery? I was there in a red Mustang doing the '66 touring cars and one hour.

Weather was surprisingly OK, after a wet qualifying I was ready for a miserable weekend!
