A Centenary at Shelsley Walsh

The weekend of the 6th and 7th of July saw two one-day meetings at Shelsley Walsh. Following Saturday's Reg Phillips Trophy Meeting, Sunday saw the annual gathering for the Vintage Sports Car Club Meeting, with a range of classes for Edwardian (1908-1919), Vintage (pre-1931) and selected Post Vintage Thoroughbred (1931-1931) cars (VSCC definitions). The highlight of the event was a large gathering of Vauxhall 30/98 cars (designed in 1913 specifically to compete at Shelsley, but popular for all forms of motoring ever since) which were, of course celebrating their centenary this year.


Some cars were displayed on the grassy parts of the hill:

Shelsley Walsh 070713 (3) Shelsley Walsh 070713 (5)

Shelsley Walsh 070713 (6) Shelsley Walsh 070713 (8)


Other makes and models were also on display:

And cars of all shapes and sizes were lining up to compete on the hill:
Shelsley Walsh 070713 (16) Shelsley Walsh 070713 (18)

Shelsley Walsh 070713 (19) Shelsley Walsh 070713 (20)

Shelsley Walsh 070713 (22) Shelsley Walsh 070713 (24)

Shelsley Walsh 070713 (26) Shelsley Walsh 070713 (30)


I also got a good selection of shots from just above Bottom S, although I had the usual issue with people closer to the barriers suddenly moving into my view:
Shelsley Walsh 070713 (34) Shelsley Walsh 070713 (36)

Shelsley Walsh 070713 (40) Shelsley Walsh 070713 (47)

Shelsley Walsh 070713 (86) Shelsley Walsh 070713 (117)

Shelsley Walsh 070713 (119) Shelsley Walsh 070713 (120)
