An all action Easter weekend.....

01st April 2018

It's been Motorsport, Motorsport, Motorsport....

The first Sprint meeting of 2018 was held at a very damp Vazon Coast Road today.

Truthfully it was a miserable place to be because everyone's hopes and enthusiasm had been slowly heating up with anticipation of the new tarmac race season ahead.

Many competitors had spent the winter months tweaking their machinery and this should have been the 'proving ground' that valuable tenths of a second had been found.

But a damp surface ended any chance of a worthwhile result. With that being obvious before racing started some competitors decided to leave their kit in the garage... in the dry!

Luckily for me, as I needed a few pics to submit for publication, some of the most hardcore racers weren't put off. Amongst them were the Meerveld brothers, Grant and Brent.

These two guys love their racing and track days and support many local events. What makes them different is that they are in the enviable position of owning some of the most exotic Supercars ever made.

Over the years they've turned up with top-of-the-range Ferrari's, McLaren's and Lamborghini's... at least one car on everyone's 'wish list'.

My respect has always been for how they are prepared to actually race such expensive and exotic wheels. Too many of these cars are left locked up in air conditioned garages... where's the fun in that?

Today they arrived with matching Lamborghini Huracan Performantae's... in the rain. How do you top that!!

One day later... and it was dry! Yipee.

I was on Chouet beach photographing Round-2 of the Autocross Banger racing championship. Spectators get about three hours of guaranteed entertainment - for free... although I hope you support the Club by dropping a couple of quid into the bucket?

The long weekend will be completed by tomorrow's Hillclimb at Le Val des Terres.

You can view my pictures of the Vazon Sprint and the Banger Racing now. The Hillclimb pics will follow on Tuesday.
