Awesome, I can't say anything else. What an amazing 3 days: full of sunshine, passion for the cars and friendship.

Just got home in an empty house - wife is out. Kids are asleep and I just can't wink I guess there's not much left for me to do than start up the 'pics 'n stories' topic. Phil's having my saturday's load on his laptop so let's start with sunday I'm sure you all don't mind.

What a great bunch of guys and girls you are. I've enjoyed every minute of it. Great to see Chriss again and hi Graeme, I'm sure you're dying to see some of this weekend's stuff. Please throw in your pics and stories and make this a nice memento.


Wonderfull 8C 2600, shots of that glorious engine later. Wonderfull that owners do race these stunners on days like these.


Lovely 246 Dino.


E-type racer: there where lots of 'em.


Lotus Elite interior.


The Astons were loud!


Never saw a P6 with a 5 litre before!


Especially in trim like this: 435 brake! Unfortunately it had ignition problems and had to stop after a lap frown


We met Chriss and his brothers on our way up to Eau Rouge. The pre-war race was just to begin and we tried hard to snap some through a hole in the fence.


Bloody hard to pann with just 25 cm's of space! Chriss: you showed me some pics from your little cam. Please post 'em here, they looked gorgeous!

More tomorrow! Must sleep now, cheers, Dink.

Edit: results of the races.

I stuck my camera on the car of Julian Barter, HSCC class winnner in his TVR 3000M...
A TVR a bit older than yours, but I wonder if you could lap as quick as he did:
He got pole in qualifying:

And came first in class in both Saturday and Sunday's races:

Give Vixpy a call then hehe I'm sure he will sell this one wink Or what's left of it.

I got mail: Hi Albert,

Thanks for the compliments and interest.

I dont upload my pictures as I mostly work on assignment basis and am occupied with that.

But I did take a lot of pictures yesterday so if you give me details of the cars I should be looking for I will search my archives and send you the previews together with an offer in due time.

Make - Type - Colour - Reg

Regards, Jochen (frozen speed)
....................................
Ok, I have a few good ones of the Z06 for sure. woohoo . woohoo . woohoo

Will need the colour and reg number for the Cerberas that are interested.

To give you an idea, basic package starts at 25E for 2 high resolution images.

Will send you your previews as soon as possible.

Regards, Jochen
...................................

Will post 'em up when I get 'em guys.
