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.
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!
Photos of the circuit as it was in 2004. It has changed a bit since then. Bit tidier nowadays.
Long time since I’ve been to Dulwich Picture Gallery although I’ve played cricket at one of the beautiful grounds across the road. Recently though, there was a small display of vintage Jaguars to coincide with a lecture by Ian Callum, Jaguar’s Design Director.
D-Type. With improvised protection. (The weather was threatening to be typically “British”….appropriately).
Road legal C-Type, in iconic Ecurie Ecosse colours.
The classic E-Type.
& the contemporary F-Type
Each of the earlier cars had an interesting history but most of it now escapes me.
A more modern XK & an S-Type also managed to get in on the act.
The grounds are beautiful & immaculately kept.
& nearer to the gallery in a space to itself there was to be seen a Citroen “H” Van. (No relation). 🙂
