A full entry of 20 turned up for the track night which was run in summer-like weather. Unfortunately, this prompted a number of participants to dress for the beach rather than the track with short sleeves and even shorts in one case. Fortunately, suitable apparel which complied with the mandatory “long sleeves and long trousers” rule was found among those attending and marshalling and everyone managed to get their runs. There is no truth in the rumour that someone was seen wandering around the paddock minus their trousers.
A notable visitor to the paddock, but sadly not the track, was the Hopkins’ Frazer Nash which was seeing the light of day for the first time in ten years. Next time it might even sport a front number plate!
Some entrants in the forthcoming hill climbs were using the opportunity to get in some advance practice. One such person had trekked from Dunoon to remind themselves of which way the track went after a gap of ten years, before rushing off to catch the last ferry back to Dunoon.
All in all, it seemed to be a successful event with the best turn-out for an evening event for some time. Here is the photogallery:
