Travel 2019 – Alsace and Baden, Day 11, Mulhouse

Monday, 23nd September 2019 – Mulhouse Monday was mostly all about cars, so if they don’t interest you, you may want to look away now! When I was running the day before I got a good look at some of the neighbourhood, and while I was cooling down afterwards I took a few photos of…

Travel 2018 – Goodwood Revival, Goodwood

Sunday, 9th September 2018 – Goodwood Revival Meeting, Goodwood 2018 was the year of Goodwood for us. Having failed to get to any of the main meetings in previous years, largely because they tended to clash with international F3 meetings elsewhere in Europe, we’d pretty much given up on the idea. Last year, the club…

Travel/Food 2018 – France and Spain (but only a little bit)!

Saturday, 5th May/Wednesday, 23rd May 2018 – Home, Hull, Rotterdam, Epernay, Etoges, Troyes, Bordeaux, Pau, Pugnac, Blaye, Saint Emilion, Bordeaux, Pau, Saint Jean Pied de Port, Bilbao Gotta love a road trip!

Travel/Food 2018 – French Road Trip, Day 16, Pau

Sunday, May 20th – Day 16, Pau And so we came to our final day of racing. Some lunatic had decided to schedule the first of the Formula Ford races at stupid o’clock, or at least 08:00 on Sunday morning. I mean, who does that to people? We decided that we really, really couldn’t miss…

Travel/Food 2018 – French Road Trip, Day 15, Pau

Saturday, May 19th – Day 15, Pau We started the day with minis, but sadly, despite the “Mini Crunch” being much touted, there were just a few cars on track. I counted 6 at this stage, which is not enough for a race round Pau, especially if you hope to get enough back for a…

Travel/Food 2018 – French Road Trip, Day 9, Pau

Sunday, May 13th – Day 9, Pau The day started off reasonably well and it looked as if we might get some decent weather. How wrong can you be? However, the initial races of the day were run in relatively dry conditions, and we got to sit in the grandstand and be entertained! There was…

Travel/Food 2018 – French Road Trip, Day 8, Pau

Saturday, May 12th – Day 8, Pau Having basked in the sunshine on Friday, Saturday came as a bit of a shock to our systems. We woke to find low cloud and the Pyrenees had disappeared overnight, as they are occasionally wont to do. We hung about on the Boulevard for a short while but…

Travel/Food 2018 – French Road Trip, Day 7, Pau

Friday, May 10th – Day 7, Pau And so finally we were ready for the start of what may very well be the last Grand Prix in Pau, at least in its current format. I’m sure the organisers will find something to replace the Formula Three category, but it really won’t be the same. And…

Travel 2018 – Monaco, Day 4

Monday, February 19th 2018 – Monaco It was our last day but we had plenty of time (and a late check-out at the hotel) so we took our own sweet time getting packed and ready to check out, having a cup of coffee while we enjoyed the views from the room over the harbour, and…
