While the batteries are on charge ready for a weekend at Gurston I thought I'd make a quick update here. After a couple of bitterly cold weekends at Shelsley and Barbon/Harewood it has been great to have two nice weekends at Loton Park to warm back up again. In a perfect world that would mean the good weather is here for the summer but it looks like the waterproofs will be coming out this weekend.
Last Sunday was the Party in the Park at Loton Park. H&DLCC had a superb entry of cars including Ferraris, Ultima, Porsche, Caterham, Dodge Viper, Subaru Imprezas, Jaguar XK,Lancia Stratos and Cosworth Sierra for the event where visitors could have a ride as a passenger up the hillclimb track. They also had static displays including the 2003 Le Mans winning Bentley Speed 8, a display of Classic and hill climb cars, a demonstration of skill by the Autotest team, and a Trials car section when you could see what its like to be a passenger. The event was to support Midlands Air Ambulance and Alberbury Church.
I thought I'd have an experiment and focus on trying out video for the day. The clip below should give you an impression of what the event was like. Hopefully it is something that they can repeat in the future as it was a great day out and seemed to be very well received by all the people that attended.
A couple of people have mentioned they have been seeing an error message when browsing the site or trying to purchase images. I have made some changes to hopefully stop this happening but if you do have any problems please use the contact link to the left to send me details of what is happening and I'll try again. Thanks.
