Default Brands Hatch Historic Masters - Time for a hosepipe ban!!

Ahh, early summer in Kent aka The Garden of England. Birds sing in the trees, rabbits play happily in the fields, or at least they would if the poor buggers hadn't been drowned by a downpour that lasted pretty much all day...harrumph !

#1. Group C, the sports prototypes designed for the Le Mans 24 Hours etc. This one's an Intrepid. Did i say how wet it was ?




2# You wait all day for 1....A lovely pair of Alfas from the Top Hat Masters.



#3 This is F1 as it should be. A gorgeous ex Ronnie Peterson Lotus 76.



#4 The Group C field led by a pair of Jaguars (XJR 11 & 12)



#5 Nissan NPT 90 GTP.



#6 Gorgeous GT40 from the Sports Racing Masters-It sounded a bit rough though..



#7 Lotus 76 emerging from the gloom...



#8 Ex Niki Lauda March 721G



As always C&C welcome. Full gallery is up in the usual place.

Thanks for looking.

Was it raining Geoff? The JPS and the Jags leading the pack are the pick of the bunch for me.


Cheers
Ian

Just a light shower Ian...

Nice Geoff, also love the Group C pack shot. Glad I'm not the only one who thought it sounded a bit dodgy.

Great stuff Geoff. All that rain, but I bet it was still better than Croft last weekend.

These are all absolutely spot on Geoff. The first 5 in particular are right on the money. I'll have to pick 3 favourites and go with #3, #4 and #5. Great stuff.

Cheers,

Simon.

Think i'll print that out & frame it, thanks Simon

3 is through Doc Palmer's infamous fence at Druids. 4 is also through a fence which has a very nice (large) TV camera flap in it. 5 is fortunately a nice clear view

Love the Alfa's. I can't get over how small the old F1 cars are. It always amazes me when I see them at the Road America vintage races.

Really great stuff, I actually ended up loving the subjects and not concentrating on the excellent photography. Gotta love the shot of the Alfa's though...
