Quick update of pictures from the speed trial earlier this year. Always really hard to photograph because you are against the light but I got a few reasonable ones. Good to see it back after the petition earlier this year.
First off I can’t decide if I like this picture or hate it, you decide.
It’s too busy, but then Brighton is too busy.
And a more conventional shot of the Ford Fairlane on the return pass.
The bikes really upped their game this year, or it could be that there were fewer quick cars.
In previous years I remember the fastest shoot out being close between 2 wheels and 4 but this time the bikes had it hands down. Fastest over the line was, I think 167mph.
As ever there was a good mix of speed machines and classics, or even classic speed machines! I couldn’t get close enough to see if this was a real Gulf car or not.
For once the Police aren’t called for a burn out on Madeira Drive!
I’m not even sure what this is? A trike?
And another 60’s icon is prepared for another run.
