Trip to the Palace went a bit awry so here’s a Lomax seen in the outer paddock.
British built kit-car based around Citroen 2CV mechanicals and in the style of a Morgan three-wheeler.
An unusual item…never seen another one. Crescent Toy model based on unknown original (possibly Scania) in Ferrari livery. Spring loaded jib, retractable tow-bar. Scale probably about O-scale (1:43).
The rain held off and there was a reasonable selection of machinery for this year’s meeting back at the Spring Bank Holiday at the end of May.
Particularly liked an awesome Cooper-Daimler V8 with a lady driver.
But spent far too much time inspecting a 1952 Aston-Butterworth Grand Prix with its unusual flat-4 engine. In reality it was unreliable and had a tendency to catch fire!!
Cockpit would give a modern GP driver nightmares for life!
1947 Monaco 500 cc, driven by John Potts, waits at the start line at the Crystal Palace sprint meeting in May 2010.
Crystal Palace, United Kingdom – Photographs of Circuit.
Photos of the circuit as it was in 2004. It has changed a bit since then. Bit tidier nowadays.
My BMW 2002, on the main straight at Crystal Palace racetrack in 1983.
