As things seem quiet thought I would post another couple of pics from the last PCT.

 

Trying to capture the old cars in a group when parked up can be difficult as they tend to be parked next to mundanemobiles though as luck would have it they parked up together during lunch.... Better to be lucky than good...(-:

 

f8  1/320th   ISO 100   [email protected] 32mm pattern metering.

 

The lady driver in the Singer :-

f8  1/500th   auto ISO  220  [email protected] 45mm pattern metering.

 

CC welcomed as always.

What amazes me is that they can climb grass (and muddy?) hills in what look like very thin tires. Cool cars!

Doug, only once have I heard someone really complain about not "winning" because his  machine was of a type specifically built to take on those types of hills like a mountain goat, and thus was handicapped accordingly which he did not like, never saw him again, Mostly I hear laughing from the cars as they get stuck in the mud, though inevitably some take it a tad more seriously than others.

 

Mark the thin tyres work best as driving modern tyres on (invariably) wet grass can be like driving on ice and thin tyres can cut through the grass to some degree and find just a little more grip, I think the same may apply to snow, no doubt the Canadians amongst us will correct me if I`m wrong..(-:  Some competitors have been known to "cheat" by putting more weight over the driven wheels i.e. loading the boot (trunk) with cast iron window weights etc. etc. etc...(-:  And it can get rather too muddy on occasion..(-:

 

As you have shown interest in the event and to hopefully give you more insight, I have posted some pics taken with my Nikon Coolpix e990  in point and shoot mode, circa 2002 all of which were reduced size from the originals back then some of which were used in a car club article at the time.

 

Apologies in advance if posting such low quality and old pics is thought not to be quite within the bounds of expectations on this forum. Perhaps they are permissible in that they kinda help tell a story..? (-:
