Wet, Wet, Wet in Dorset (Not the Pop Group!)

IMG_0219The Super 6 at Portland.

Just returned from an enjoyable course in challenging conditions. As you can see from the many waterproofs in the photo it was a very wet course with rain every day. That didn’t dampen our spirits though and we managed to get in the few brief spells to get some great shots.

A big thank you to Pamela, Charlie, Michelle, Joy and Mike for not letting the rain get them down.

Belle Tout Lighthouse

IMG_4559_60_61_tonemappedIMG_4482_3_4_tonemappedJust come back from a few days break at the wonderful Belle Tout Lighthouse near Beachy Head. A superb location with stunning views along the windswept coastline. This was one of the few lighthouses in the Uk you can stay in and spend time in the Light Room. This was Helen’s Birthday treat and we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay despite the wind and rain at times.IMG_4479_80_81_tonemappedWe were amazed to find out that there is a full time chaplaincy team patrolling the area 24/7 as there are so many suicides along this stretch of coastline. These people save loads of lives year so good on them.

Silverstone Practice 2015

FOR_0628

Another hot day at Silverstone for Practice -Luckily we have access to the grandstands so some shade from the heat. 2 sessions with the Mercedes team looking strong as usual – a good show from Ferrari and Max Verstappen. Sad to say Gp2 sounds better than F1 now.

Todays participants were David, Trevor, Justin, Dan, Natalie and Neil.

Hope to see you all again.

We still have very limited places on the Goodwood Revival and Brands Hatch events. Please feel free to contact us to reserve your place.
