Blyton 2019

Post by Andrew1967 »

Just got back from another great day out at Blyton.

As usual some brilliant cars on and off the track. Some of the engineering and builds of these cars are just awesome.

Great to catch up with forumers and pass on goods and buy some myself.

Thanks to Nick W for a brilliant few laps in ONP .... what a fantastic car ... :D

Yep another belter, we took DJJ, Nicks gained a little bit of sponsorship from
His boss (11 degrees clothing) for our local Hillclimbs at Barbon this year, so just a bit of a test for us, although he kept telling me where I was going wrong when I drove it ! Love the youth of today !

Oh and talking of youth, Adam was blindingly fast today , loved the jag engined Mini and great to see Pauls GRX

Thanks as always to Mark and Pete , roll on number 7, oh and it be great to see a few of you at Harewood on the 1st June! , still time to enter !

Couple of pics on my Flickr site, including the pic of the magic flying bonnet ! ( err this was me!), more to go on I’ll edit

Ditto to all the above. Such a friendly and unique event. Nice to meet up with old and new friends.

Thanks especially to Mark and Pete for putting it on again, keep filling the collection buckets.

Not forgetting the fantastic selection of cars.

All the best for tomorrow

Another cracking Blyton with great cars as ever.

4 1/2 hours to do the 60 miles back wasn’t good including 9 break downs! We think down to a dodgy condensor. When we finally broke down in a pub car park it was shut for a private bloody party!

Thanks to Mark, Pete and everyone involved in running it.

Now, where does my pal return his trophy.....

Very good indeed - I think the weather was OK today as well. I braved three laps in the Hornet of Terror, and lived. :lol:

Top marks Chaps.
