Shelsley Walsh Classic Nostalgia

With a class for everything from Edwardians to Youngtimers, single seaters to big banger sportscars, a huge crowd turned out on 22-23 July to the Worcestershire Shelsley Walsh hillclimb, the oldest motor sport venue in continuous use in the world, for the annual Classic Nostalgia meeting.  Saturday rain gave way to Sunday sunshine as a wide variety  of over 160 cars made their way up the hill at speed.   Special themes this year were 60 Years of McLaren, 65 Years of the British Saloon car Championships and 60 Years of the Mini Cooper.  Fastest time of the day was by Dave Tatham, driving a McLaren M12C.

Concours, music, dancing and other attractions completed the activities.
