A bit late but just a couple of batches from last Sunday at Cadwell. The 'Trials' photos (cars & bikes) are because they put on a demo in the woods near The Mountain bottom - seemed quite popular with spectators as it was something that many of them don't normally watch I suspect.

Very good crowd given that many people were at the Sillystone concrete jungle that weekend watching a few modern classics apparently.

Second batch.

The coming together at Chris Curve could have been nasty - I thought the Aston Martin Ulster was going to get rolled over at one point. But both survived with light damage I think, the drivers got out unharmed, seemed to share a laugh and drove back to the paddock unaided at the end of the race.

There had been four or five cars jostling for position (some out of shot) and I think it just got a bit narrow for them. Just noticed it out of the corner of my eye, turned round and managed to get a short sequence of shots.

Great shots as always Gary.


It's interesting to see Cadwell so parched. I can't recall anything but green before.

Did the Aston and Bentley escape unscathed?

Ignore this post! Failed to read copy above photos.

No problem. The cars just stayed upright, the drivers got out and appeared to check that each other was okay - no finger pointing or anything. The race finished a lap or two later and I think they just had a tug at some of the bodywork to make sure it wasn't catching on the tyres - then drove back to the paddock with a wave to the attending marshals. All very casual from what could have been a bit nasty.

Thanks Grant. I might do one or two more VSCC events this year but then thinking of calling it a day for motorsports photography other than the occasional Trial. These could be collector's items one day!

Indeed!


VSCC at Mallory Park on 11th August?


Unless they have suddenly erected a lot of fences in the past couple of months it would be a great place for a swansong photographic outing. Especially good for VSCC.
