Classic Speedfair Sat 26th & Sun 27th June

Postby neuromancer » Mon Jun 21, 2010 11:20 pm

Probably the best event of the year at Knockhill this Sunday. Classic car racing and many static displays, car clubs etc.

I hope to be there all day Sunday - anyone else going?

lol - didn't quite make the Bass Rock this trip. But great views anyway;

Bishop Hill, Kinross-shire. Note the comforting "Emergency Jettison" lever for the canopy.

View over Loch Leven

Had a great time, definitely recommend to anyone who hasn't tried it. Ex-RAF instructor Chris was great and good value also - I had over 2.5 hours of flying logged in this one day. :)

I'm sure I've seen that Cortina engine bay before. I remember Callander Classics 2007, how sad am I :(
