Well, this is working better than expected. Keep them coming, folks.

I took this one at BDC, Silverstone back in August. It features one of my favourite cars with one of my favourite people. The car is of course the one off WSM MGB built by the late Douglas Wilson-Spratt and now owned by his son, Tony. It was an Invitation car in the Bic Healey Trophy race which ran for the second time this year and BDC has confirmed that I can run it again in 2017. The race which is not a FISCAR race is very much 'Woosum' territory and I am hoping that the grid will again increase this coming season.

This car seems to have popped from time to time in my life, as I first saw it raced at Silverstone in 1968. I then saw it driven many years later on the road in Croydon and Tony has campaigned it occasionally more recently. The man (I'm tempted to call him boy!!) looking over it has popped into my life rather more frequently, and is the current Editor of Autosport, looking rather taller than he does in my avatar photo, standing next to his younger brother. Alas, I did not own either of those Astons, unfortunately.

Bob, it's supposed to be favourite images of the season, not a positive torrent However some great cars there:-

1) Stephen Bond in Lister 'Flatiron' Bristol. It was particularly good to see him out with us after that appalling accident in the Lotus at the Goodwood Members meeting early in the year
2) Keith Hampson, in the Sunbeam Alpine Le Mans mentioned in my first post
3) Alex Quattlebaum in LECo2, currently the quickest of the XPAG Specials. Alex flies over regularly from the States to compete. He also owns LECo1 which he is rebuilding
4) Paul Ziller in the TR2. The TRs have been notable for their absence from FISCAR grids in the past, but this year, Paul and fellow TR2 racer, Mark Hoble, have ensured that we had two of them at every round which was superb to see.
5) Darren McWhirter in the V12 Lagonda (looking like a big DB3S) on his way to winning our first running of The Tom Cole Trophy at VSCC Spring Start.
6) Chris Mann in the fabulous Alfa Romeo Disco Volante which he drives to and from our meetings. At Castle Combe Autumn Classic he drove it down from London, ran in two wet races and then drove back on the same day. He did so on his own, and I'm sure he wouldn't mind me pointing out that he is now in his 70s. A true old style enthusiast in the best possible way.

Bob, when I get around to my next favourite image, since they are freely given, thank you, I'm going to use one of your photos from the Bic Healey race.

Another one from me - and another VSCC event!

This was taken at the club's Measham Rally in January - an overnight navigational event that for the last few years has been held in North Yorkshire. This one was taken prior to the start with the crew doing some last minute map reading / planning, resting on the bonnet of their Fiat 508S.

So not an action shot - I just liked the look of concentration, the lighting and the overall atmosphere.

Next month the 'Measham' is moving south into the Midlands based at Bruntingthorpe Proving Grounds.

Great shot, Gary but looks all too cold for me!

This is the promised Bauble shot. It's of the dice for the lead in the Bic Healey race, between Jonathan Abecassis in his Austin Healey 100/4 and Drew Cameron in the Speedwell Sprite (which had been built for Drew by his father, Allan, who we very sadly lost to cancer at the beginning of the year). The dice went on for lap after lap, and they were often side by side as shown here. Having watched racing now for at least 50 years, mainly historics, this race was as close as any I have witnessed over the years. Jonathan won it by just over a tenth of a second.
