A few shots from a track day that I've just got back from - hopefully you find the cars interesting. I've included a shot of a wonderful Tromp L'oeil that the circuit owners have put in the car park.

1) Ford GT 40 (replica)




2) AC Cobra (replica)




3) AC Cobra and Morgan V8




4) BMW M3 E30




5) Tromp L'oeil




Both of the replicas are genuine copies based on original cars, and so have correct (period) engines and the correct suspension set up from period cars. They have both been beautifully built by their owners and demonstrate what can be done without spending the many hundreds of thousands (or even millions!) of Pounds that a period car would cost.

The other cars are both originals and in equally beautiful condition. Despite their value the owners 'didn't spare the horses' in taking them around the circuit.
