Based in the beautiful Teme Valley in a stunning part of Worcestershire, less than 30 min from the M5, this is THE BIG ONE.

Those mad mad mad people at the world's oldest race venue, put their pinnacle annual event on in August. This is a true piece of eccentric English sporting history.

Here are the details: http://www.shelsley-...sp?ms=21&ei=134


If you enjoy the roar, smell and proximity of racing as it used to be, you'll love this. Wander in amongst the cars in Park Ferme and talk to the owners. You can practically stand on the start line and actually feel the noise as the cars blast away and squirm up the hill. A true petrol heads delight. Posted Image

All this for the measly sum of around £15 or less.


The plan is a simple one, we meet somewhere near to the event, go there, enjoy the event and some racing, meet up for a picnic lunch, enjoy some more racing, go home Posted Image

Up for it?
Current:
2016 Audi A6 Allroad
2015 Suzuki Celerio

Would love to meet up with you all again but it's a bit far for us :(

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
