    Pity the MG Saloon blocked a clear view of the ERA...

    A few decades ago on BBC TV, Saturday afternoon sport covered a wide variety of sports in addition to dog meat racing. Even motorsport had a wide variety of disciplines covered, including mud plugging sporting car trials, 'point to point' with the army vs the London Motor Club using anything from three tonners to Land Rovers. Autotests (the annual Ken Wharton trophy between North, South, East, West and Midlands, circuit racing (of course) and hillclimbs.

    One of the hillclimbs was 'Rest-And-Be-Thankful' in Scotland, where a young Jackie Stewart had his first competitive event in a Marcos. Rather fittingly that when we were on a ships tour there on two visits to Scotland, the 2023 visit had a bright yellow MGF parked at the top car park.

    You certainly give us variety ray! Thanks. Where is the Sunbeam? I was told it was no longer on display.

    Still at the National Motor Museum on public display Rhys.

    For me, variety is what is missing in a lot of modern day motorsport. Even modern F1 cars stripped of their colours look identical as do most single seater classes, not to mention the execrable ute racing, Toyota 86s even BMW E30s/E40's just have me heading off for a coffee rather than trackside.

    These are 2023 pics from this year's trip as are most I'm currently posting. I'm missing the monthly local Caffeine & Classics meetings that were held on the North Shore and with Pukekohe now gone, my pics won't be very varied until I get to Goodwood Revival again next September! At this stage, Friday (qualifying) is planned and possibly Saturday, but nothing else as yet.

    I'd love to return to Cadwell Park or Prescott Hillclimb at some stage, maybe even Mallory Park, places where I never had the luxury of a camera with anything other than a standard fixed lens.

    Of course Ray, I was thinking of the Railton. I must get down to Beaulieu, I need to see the Gordon Bennett Napier up close. Nobody replies to emails asking if it's on display.

    I have no photograph of that Napier and I can't remember seeing it on display. This one is at Caister - pic taken 2021. Not exactly a racer!

    Yes. NZ plates at the National Motor Museum UK. Loved my RM Riley but sadly, I didn't have the skills or the facility to restore it.

    Note that the National Museum (Beaulieu), generally, doesn't have the info plinths blocking the views.
