We were kindly invited to Brands Hatch to show our cars at the 'Masters Historic Racing' day. Rick & Julie, Clive & Paula, Joe & Mary, Kevin & Jayne, Frank & Lesley, Andy & Sandy, Steve & Jayne, Shawn & his dad, Marcus & Cathie, Buster & Marie all took their cars along. We were joined by 3 members of the Maidstone MGOC. We were parked up on the Clark Curve corner into the Brabham Straight, right opposite the pits! and with the snack bar and the comfort stop (toilets) right behind us we were set up for the day.
We met up with Tania who organised our trip around the track at lunch-time, during the break from the Mororsport racing to sort out our wrist bands and for everyone to sign up on the sheet!
It was then time to sit back and enjoy the racing and the sunshine! It was good to see some parents had got their children ear defenders to wear, I just wish I had a pair when the noisier cars came out! A few of the men went off in search of some cars and engines down in the pit lane and to see what was on offer in the shops.
Then it was time for us to do our parade lap around the track, and after a wait of what seemed like forever, it was time to go..........
Here are a few of our photos we took throughout the day. Of course I have loads more, but I have only put a few up here, and I'll put the rest in the photo gallery. We witnessed one spin off onto the dirt.... and right at the end of the day, and right infront of Joe, Mary, Buster and Marie a car spun right in front of us, the pictures are a little blurred as I didn't have time to focus in, but you can see the car is facing the wrong way down the straight, just to add that both drivers quickly got out unscathed, However their cars didn't and would require some work on them!
On behalf of the members I have contacted Tania, and thanked her and the Brands Hatch team for allowing us to join them at the Masters Historic Racing day, and that we all had a fantastic day out and would like to join in again next year.
