Silverstone Classic 2014

soc stand3

At last its that time of year again, time for 3 fantastic days of classic cars and top quality racing, and the great British weather decided to smile upon us and has given 3 days of hats, suncream and plenty of drinks!!!

SOC stand was well attended, we had over 30 Stags with us on Saturday

There were so many things going on this weekend, from the BMW wheel that gave fabulous views over the whole site, hot air balloons in the early morning and late in the eventing gave a spectacular start and end to the day. There was live music both Friday and Saturday evenings, the Paras also dropped in on Friday with a great display.

Of course the main attraction was the many varied races that took place over the whole weekend, from F1, touring cars, sports cars and GT’s. Here is jus a selection of some of the pics – see more on our Flickr Page.

On on Saturday during the lunch break, we were treated to a parade of Ford Mustang’s as they were celebrating there 50th anniversary. (Just for you One Man And His Mustang)

And heading up the pack was Wheeler Dealers Mike Brewer in his fully restored 1967 Mustang Fastback

Well after only 4 months of blogging, not only have we been taken aback on the number of folks who read our blog and give us some great feedback, but Mart has given us another wonderful surprise and nominated us for the WordPress Family Award!!!!

So with one huge thank you to Mart who kindly nominated our little blog for this award.


As with all these awards the rules are quite simple:

4. Let your 10 Family members know you have awarded them

5. That is it. Just please pick 10 people who have taken you as a friend, and spread the love

This is where for us it gets a little difficult and a little embarrassing, we seam to spend a lot of time on our blog but shamefully we don’t get to look around at others as much as we would like…

1) has to be Mart –, having followed us we are still getting through reading through some of his archives, lovely car there Mart!!!!

2) Charlecote Park –, a wonderful place that we visited this year during our ESM and lovely to see what is happening there.

3) Paladin Glass –, after this very cleaver lady made a fab Stag tea light holder for me, I love to see what else she has done!

and I am sorry to say that these are the ones so far as we just haven’t had the time to read more but we promise that will change over the winter months!!!

Its great to be part of the Family 🙂
