Honda RC213V-S

I forgot to post these images taken on my iPhone at the end of April. The event was the Classic Car and Bike Rally held in Church Square, Scunthorpe town centre and I thought I'd drop by for a quick look. The last thing I expected to see amongst the Morris Minors was a Honda RC213V-S! I didn't have a camera with me so I had to use my iPhone - I'm not a fan of phone cameras as I find it difficult to cope with the glare on the screen.

The Brembo Brakes are the same as the MotoGP bike apart from the carbon brake discs and pads.

The level of detail is amazing - then again it should be for the price.

Alan Healy Memorial Rally Cadwell Park 10th April 2016

This was an event I wanted to see last year but for some reason that I can't remember I never got around to it. It was a nice bright day but the cold light wind cut through you on the more exposed parts of the circuit - a good incentive to keep walking around the circuit! A good days action if not a little odd to see cars negotiating the circuit in the opposite direction.

Sywell Classic 26-27 September 2015

A little bit of something for every one really at the Sywell Classic. I started off touring the club displays, stopping for a chat with a couple of friendly and enthusiastic members at the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club stand (VJMC) – I think they might have talked me into joining. This Kawasaki Z1000 with bling was in their display.

I was a little disappointed that bike clubs were relatively far and few between as I picked my way through the various car clubs. However there were some interesting motors, past and present.


Nice car, awful colour.


When cars had style!

Aluminium caravan

Caravans aren’t my thing but this early (American?) aluminium caravan caught my eye – interesting but somehow looks far from practical.

I was late getting to the drag strip and the noise and tyre smoke drew a good crowd very quickly so I was unable to get a good viewing position. Still what I did see was entertaining enough and there was a good mix of cars.

Stunning attention to detail.

Honda RC30

There were some nice machines in the bike paddock, my favorite was this beautifully turned out RC30. There were also some famous faces…

Paul Chenard

Whilst in the paddock I had an interesting conversation with artist and writer Paul Chenard who was sketching a Maico racing bike. Paul specialises in motorsports artwork in a variety of media and even took time to show me some of his work. You can find out more about him on his Facebook page.
