Yesterday saw the annual Pre War Austin 7 Club winter trial at an old quarry near Chesterfield. Bitterly cold all day and poor light made conditions trying but a fun day was had by all.

With the mud not being as wet as other years it made things easier for drivers with a high number clearing most hills.

Proof,if proof is needed,that all you need to have fun is a set of wheels and some mud!

What a great event well captured, I wish I'd known about it.

Number 5 is hilarious with his choice of passenger for wheelgrip! :D

Some of those numberplates must be worth a fortune to the personalised plates brigade.
