Ahead of the 2015 Motorsport at the Palace I went back to look at my pictures from last year and realised I never put them up. Here is a small selection that might encorage you into going this weekend.
There is a god mix of modern and classic cars although my camera last year seemed only to find the classics.
With some of the classes the cars spend longer on the start line than they do on the course. You can see a lot of the drivers getting more tense the closer they get to the start.
Before charging up the hill.
With such a short amount of time on track for each run there is plenty of time to catch up before going out another run.
2014 celebrated this race which has been watched many times even 40 plus years after the track last held a race.
A short update today. It was a warm sunny day so took a walk around Horsted Keynes area. Just north of Haywards Heath.
I thought I should try and get a post in that didn’t mention Goodwoo… …O.
I was asked to take photos at a private event at Brighton Toy and Model Museum a few weeks ago. If you’ve not been there before they have huge layout of predominantly pre & post war ‘toy’ trains. They run it for the pubic on set days but, understandably, there are plastic screens to protect the exhibits. On a few occasions a year they take down the screens and run everything.
The trains stand about 5″ tall and are mostly metal giving them real presence.
Being a toy museum as much attention is paid to the ‘extra’ details as the trains. There are also lots of vintage arcade machines and all manor of toys.
But the stars are without doubt the big trains which pull 10 coach trains around with apparent ease.
It’s right in the centre of Brighton, under the station. Go and visit it http://www.brightontoymuseum.co.uk/
