Not Motorsport at the Palace, (again)

Trip to the Palace went a bit awry so here’s a Lomax seen in the outer paddock.

Crystal Palace Sprint Meeting 2015

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!

Not MotorSport at the Palace 2014

Having been thwarted in my attempts to reach this year’s meeting on the Bank Holiday Monday by a minor domestic crisis & three different transport fails, I have no new photo’s. to display.

So I will pick a favourite from each of the four preceding years to make up for it. & look forward hopefully to next year, which if the proposed development goes ahead as it stands, may be the last if the exclusivity zone demanded by the developers is allowed. Whatever one’s views about the site of the old Crystal Palace the extent of the exclusivity zone is not acceptable.
