I think having three people in his sidecar probably isn't helping!

Fantastic picture, though.

What a blast from the past, West Cornwall Motor Club with the much missed Harold Luke-Dunne scrutineering, what a gentleman.
Did you run at Trengwainton Jamie ?
Judging by the angle of the trees a bit scary on a bike for sure, a bit like the tree that grew out at an angle just after the gate at Wiscombe, I`ve seen many a sidecar passenger move their head to miss that one !! a breed apart from us four wheelers that`s for sure.
Superb picture, any more ?
Best regards Roger.

You can still see these 'shots' at Loton and Shelsley etc thank goodness, just select Monochrome!
I thought another enlarged pic here would be good!

Never got to ride at Trengainton Roger, but it was my first recollections of motor sport, my father held the 350cc record there and back in the 70's I used to walk to the top and get a lift down on the tank of his Velocette, as I also did at Wiscombe and any other hill we could gat away with it. I had to wait until 86 before I could ride, Trengwainton was long gone by then.

As for the 2CV, my Uncle, Phil Williams has already tried, anyone remember "Kermit"
Jamie, might sound a strange question but did you live at the top of Cormorant drive in Holmbush??

Sorry to open old threads, but just came acorss these pics http://www.panoramio.com/photo/50468622 of Trengwainton earlier this year, seems the old course was cleared for access. Probably by the National Trust.

Concrete doesn't look that bad so I might have to take a trip 40 miles eastward sometime.

Popped into Trengwainton today and the track and foliage had been cleared. The concrete looks amazingly well preserved, but still rough. I have added the 2011 pics to the other pics I have and posted them here in some order.

Superb Sir! Just showed my parents as they are up to stay, and as NT members they regularly walk down there but were gobsmacked to see pics of bikes running down there. Dad said take a few MX bikes up there and it will soon be clear.

Westbrook Hay, nr Hemel Hempstead - this is now the driveway to a prep school. (My wife used to work there - nobody at the school remembered the hillclimb). The track is now lined on either side by a stout fence to keep the Belted Galloway cattle in.

Great Auclum, nr Reading - The track is mostly still there, including the banking, but is in a terrible state. I took a Mallock there a few years ago for a tv programme and there was no way you could drive on it. A large housing estate has been built right up to the edge of the track.
