Cultra Hill Climb

2000 Subaru Impreza, Mark Lancashire.

Cultra Hill Climb was held in the grounds of the Folk Museum on 14th June and was popular as usual no doubt aided by the unusual weather – we’re getting sunshine most days! There’s always a wide selection of vehicles taking part as well as a display of interesting old and not so old cars. This sometimes brings on vaguely¬†uncomfortable feelings of nostalgia as I’ve owned one or two of the not so old cars in my youth.

As usual I’m behind with processing my photographs and I’ll be adding more to my site in the near future.

Watching old cars

I nearly always go to Graigantlet Hill Climb but this year I had other things to do and had simply put it out of my mind, out of my mind that is until my neighbour asked “Are you going to the Hill Climb?”¬† Without a pause I said “Yes.”

Now Craigantlet Hill Climb always attracts some beautiful vehicles, it’s a popular event and it was a sunny day so there was a good crowd and we were late, actually we were very late and as I expected we didn’t get anywhere near a good position for taking photographs so I simply watched. This wasn’t a hardship as I enjoy motor sport and it was nice to just watch without a camera stuck to my face.

I did take some photographs however.
