Syston Speed Trials 2016

For the first time since 1939 the Syston Speed Trials were held at Syston Park near Grantham Lincolnshire. The event was very low key and benefited from this as it provided a very relaxed and informal atmosphere, concentrating on enjoying motor sport on this historic hill climb. I concentrated on sketching motorcycles but there was a great variety of 4 wheeled entrants in the form of vintage sports cars, Edwardian race cars and hill climb specials. Hopefully this event will become an annual affair that sticks to the high quality of entrants and limited public tickets as it certainly made for a refreezing change to more heavily attended events which have their own merits.
