Standard Triumph Marque Day, Prescott Speed Hill Climb

What a fantastic weekend. Great Weather for camping and getting the tyres nice and sticky for a blat up the hill. Started off with a few beers and a barbeque on the Saturday night. Got up early on Sunday and walked the track. Then come 10 o'clock on Sunday morning the track erupted to the sound of straight 6's V8s and 4 pots screaming up the hill accompanied by plenty of tyre screeching. I had a nice couple of fairly aggressive runs up the hill in the GT6 and took plenty of photos of other Triumphs and the odd unusual car (eg even an Amphicar!) blasting up the hill. I also had a look around the Bugatti trust museum as well which was a nice cool break from the blistering sun.

On the way home I got a call from James Cooper who had left before us warning me the traffic on the M4 was a nightmare. The good thing about that was I managed to change my route and cut across from Cirencester to Reading via Fairford, Lechlade, Wantage along the A417. Pretty empty, picturesque and  good driving road on a nice summers evening and a great drive home with the GT6 doing what is does best, a bit of fast A road touring...... A Nice way to finish off a great weekend.
