A Day At The Chateau.

A beautiful sunny day and Mrs G and I are on our way the Droitwich in worcestershire to the Chateau Impney Hill Climb event. Having never been to this event in the past I wasn't quite sure what to expect and had no idea of good places to take photographs from etc, so off we went to wing it for the day.
I honestly don't think i've ever seen so many supercars in one place at the same time, Bentley, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche etc, and that was just in the car park, this side of motorsport is obviously watched by people who have a far better 9 to 5 job than me.
Over the following 3 or 4 hours we found ourselves in absolute motor vehicle heaven, everything was there to be seen from early steam power to the aforementioned supercars and everything in between. You can only applaud these amazing people who spend their time, money and energy keeping these wonderful machines in working order. As I have said in the past and will continue to say, if a car, motorbike, boat or whatever is in running order then please do not put it in a museum. It belongs on the road, race track or lake, doing exactly what it was designed to do all those years ago.
The Chateau Impney event isn't just about the hill climb, we also had various car club displays, a fair ground which included a wall of death, trade stalls (I found a beautiful watch, but I will tell you about my love of watches another day), food area (i didn't get to be this shape by walking past a food area) and all the things to make the day a good one. Unfortunately with everything going on, this turned out to be one of those days that was spent watching and enjoying the whole event rather than taking photographs. So as a result I have a low picture count to share with you.
The day was a truly fantastic day and only made better by the fly over of a beautiful Lancaster bomber, one of only two left laying in the world. I would recommend the Chateau Impney Hill Climb event to anyone, and would urge you to add it to your list of things to do in 2020.
As ever, thank you for giving me a little of your time and if you are attending any race or motoring event please stay alert and safe.
