East Kirkby Props & Pistons 2019
A review of East Kirkby's popular Props & Pistons event back in August.
As with all of the Props & Pistons events, there is a huge mix of different cars, trucks and bikes on show. Something for everyone!
One of the cars on show - a GT40 in a lovely light blue.
Easily my favourite car on display - the Matra 650. The colour, the looks -its a fantastic car! A 1969 classic racer, with the period drivers proudly presented on the side, couldn't look any better on a sunny (but hot!) August day.
INSIDE THE HANGAR
Inside the hangar sat a Gibbs-Bentley special - an incredible looking car finished in polished bare-metal.
ON THE GRASS
Outside sat a line-up of motoring greats. The Dino (one of two at the show!) was in good company with the modern supercars.
Two iconic front-ends
As the cars were restricted to walking-pace on site, I decided a 1/15th shutter speed would be necessary to capture the action.
THE 'PROPS' PART OF PROPS & PISTONS
Obviously I couldn't write this article without showing my other passion - aviation!
I hoped you enjoyed this article, it's a little throwback to when the country was boiling instead of freezing! It's my first post in a while on here, and I've got some exciting things planned for next year - starting with Bicester Heritage's Sunday Scramble on January 5th.
