Our first outing to Shuttleworth of the year, unfortunately our trip was cut slightly short due to the Sopwith Triplane making a somewhat unconventional landing which delayed the remainder of the display by an hour or so, at which point we headed home.
The pilot was unharmed, and the Triplane is repairable although won’t be flying again this year.

Thanks to Jason Bhandari for letting me put the camera on his bike and then riding it, and Iwein Dekoninck for giving him someone to chase round the circuit.
I wasn’t overly enamoured with this to be honest. It took me a couple of weeks to muster up the enthusiasm to watch it, and I’m not really sure it was worth the effort.
The first race of the summer series and Odd Down was run by VC Walcot. A full compliment of youth races meant splitting the course in two for the initial races, before restoring it to the full 1.5km for the rest of the evening. A crash in the 3/4 race lead to it being abandoned part way through, and the subsequent E/1/2 race being slightly shortened to fit in with the available light.

After deliberating over getting one for a year or two, I finally bought myself a GoPro Hero 3+. Prepare yourselves for endless rubbish videos until I get bored with it.
Yet another film that’s been sat around for a few weeks waiting to be watched. Real life keeps getting in the way of film watching which is no bad thing.
