We had a busy day today. Drove over to Stoneleigh Park near Coventry in the GT86 for Race Retro and then down to Silverstone for the tail end of the Pomeroy Trophy meeting run by the Vintage Sports Car Club. It was nice to bump into a few people I know at Race Retro and we were surprised to see so many GT86s and BRZs in the car park.
Here are a few photos.
Good to see these in the flesh after featuring them on Gifts for Petrolheads.
I like an IPA and this Silverstone IPA wasn’t bad.
Silverstone – Pomeroy Trophy
I think this is a Ferrari 166 Inter of about 1949 with a body by Carrozzeria Touring. Rare eh? It’s great to see it being used and not in a museum this cold Saturday in February.
And here’s another rarity. I love Facel Vegas. I used to have a model of one as a little boy and used to study its lines and details in the Observer Book of Automobiles. What a car! Look at that windscreen! The lights! The grills!
I wonder whether he has a sticker that says ‘There are no Bugattis left in this van overnight’.
