Took the Box Brownie along again loaded with some glorious Kodacolor...
Ah - the joys of manual film cameras - managed a couple of double exposures - but I kinda like this one...
And finally this one, straight out of the box. Last frame on spool...
Thanks to John Isaac for these shots-
I hate to be out of touch with Old World ways but why do you start with the Checkered Flag?
So we can have a flag girl, of course.
Try again Steve. Your pics don't show up.

Great pics Youks, what a fantastic weekend. Here's a little film my daughter took of us all returning to the pits after the last run..
Awesome starting line shots Steve!
I like the way the "intro" to vid is. Area shot with equipment then a car coming toward camera at speed. Good teaser vid with cars and interviews, has me waiting for film release!

Wonderful pix! Any more? Just thinking... ifn you could get some of the Jersey Shore Race of Gentlemen cars and some of the Pendine beach cars gathered at the same place (on either side of the Atlantic, no matter), you'd have the perfect chance to have a vintage revival of turn of the century "international" motor races, like speed trials at Daytona / Ormond beach or even a road course / rally - similar to the first "trophy" races like the Vanderbuilt cup.

Awesome post. I felt like I had stepped back in time. Some of you British guys talk kinda funny, but that's ok, your cars are beautiful.
Go to youtube and tap in Pendine HotRods.....there are stacks of vids on there.
I say, steady on old chap!
Bloody traffic in Wales…
Hey @Mart, I did get a shot of your old jigger.
