As we headed towards the end of January, we found ourselves heading back to Brooklands Museum where they were hosting the VSCC Driving Tests on Jan 29th. A wide variety of pre WW2 era vehicles, tackled a number of tests, marked out with cones, against the clock. Although there wasn't a frost in the morning, I think it fair to say that it was still a cold day, made colder by the occasional rain shower, that helped to make the tests more slippery and challenging.
Of course before any competitor could go anywhere, the vehicles had to pass the Scrutineering.
Timeless cameos appeared around the Museum.
Yes, that would do me very nicely!
Little & Large
All right in white.
A very eyecatching paint job.
Now that is what old cars are all about, having fun in them.
A couple of spare wheels carried just in case.
Certainly not hanging around.
Bit of chassis lightening.
Carefully eyeing up which direction to head off to next.
Route card in eye line, or you could call it pre war sat nav.
Even some reversing was required.
Not all vehicles were low sprung and sporty.
Sublime sophistication of superb Alfa.
Traffic jam VSCC style.
Frazer Nash performing before a gallery of photographers.
MG on the move.
Bit of a lean.
Three wheel Morgan getting a move on.
Of course there is always a chance to catch up and have a natter among some engineering masterpieces.
An elderly engine getting some close inspection.
Then at the end of the day it was time to head home to get warmed up.
Another great day out at Brooklands Museum, many thanks to all those that made the day happen, and many thanks to the owners for bringing out their machinery and driving them with enthusiasm.
