170mph – High Speed Kicks

Down in Dunsford Aerodrome, the home of Top Gear for this cover shoot for Classic Cars. Five cars, an outer track to ourselves to get this cover shoot in the bag. If I can I try to get the cover shot and opening DPS shot first or at least the group tracking done. Weighing up these owners I didn’t think we would have an issue and first impressions were correct.

DBS at 50

It was baking on …

The weather was on the chilly side but dry…which was a good start. We had a walked past ‘The Loop’ and took a few of the cars that were already out on the track before heading to the main area just behind the International Pit Straight. For me all the engines sounded similar until the Aston Martins came around. …
