Donington Grand Prix Collection

Been on holiday this week, but on my travels managed to swing in past Donington Park for a few hours to visit the Donington Grand Prix Collection. The exhibition has a wide range of old Grand Prix cars from years past. Cars from the 1930’s right through to present day F1 machines. There is also a great collection of Grand Prix memorabillia ranging from old photographs to driver helmets and old F1 engines. It really is a fantastic collection of old race cars, and well worth a visit. Anyway here are a few pics:-

Doune Hillclimb Video

Following on from the pics of Doune Hillclimb last weekend here is a video sample of the event. Not the best quality, might have to invest in a proper video camera for next season!!


Doune Hillclimb – 27.09.09

Last weekend saw the final rounds of the 2009 Scottish & British Hillclimb Championships at Doune in Perthshire. I went along on the Sunday to take in the sights & sounds and get some photos & videos. A great days action on this most daunting of Hills. Due to the overcast conditions and lack of camera skills the pics are not the best!! Videos to follow over the next few days.
