Wheel to wheel racing, come rain or shine

2011.09.18
pixel
There was lots of close action in the Madgwick Cup
pixel
pixel
No.16, a Lotus-BMW was going along very nicely....
pixel
....until it all went wrong!
pixel
"Oops, I don't think I'm going to save this one!"
pixel
Tractors can be handy in all sorts of places, even motor races.
pixel
The marshals come out, armed with brooms and spades, to clear up the mess.
pixel
Some things never change - men stand there scratching their chins trying to work out how to fix the situation while the woman gets on with it!!
pixel
A 1951 Maserati in the Richmond Trophy.
pixel
David and Goliath - a Ford Galaxie (with a 7 litre engine) and a tiny Mini Cooper S (with 1.3 litres) battle it out in the St. Mary's Trophy.
pixel
"I'm coming through whether you like it or not!!"
pixel
The do-or-die overtaking manouvre worked a treat - this BMW 1800 won the race!
pixel
Political activist and would-be US President Ralph Nader once described the Chevrolet Corsair as 'unsafe at any speed'. This one certainly didn't look too safe and didn't get beyond the end of this lap!
pixel
pixel
The TT Race started in sunshine. This Shelby Cobra eventually won the race thanks to a driver who was driving like it was his last day on earth!
pixel
Ex-Formula one driver Martin Brundle driving a Ferrari GTO that belongs to Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason - worth a cool £12.5m.
pixel
He was really racing as though his life depended on it!
pixel
Then the rain came in...
pixel
Time for headlights to illuminate the way.
pixel
pixel
Racing an Aston Martin in monsoon conditions - completely crazy!

Annbramwell Great set Helen, you have captured the excitement and the beauty of all these lovely old cars... You would need to be a very confident driver to race with a car worth £12.5 million pounds, especially in the rain...

josy63 You're incredibly endowed for this genre of photos Helen (and not that for this genre, moreover)
I like the movement that you seized in 5 : it's spectacular
