Fine showing at Shelsley for monthly breakfast meet

| 13 May 2013

More than 100 classics and supercars turned out for Shelsley Walsh's monthly breakfast club meet yesterday. They included everything from vintage MG to Lola T70.

Midlands Automobile Club official Tony Harrison reckoned there were at least 200 people on site as well as decent displays from several car clubs including those representing TVR and Porsche.

He said: "Everyone seemed to be enjoying the atmosphere and appreciating the varied machines on display which ranged from the latest Aston Martin and Ford Focus RS to classics such as a Hillman Imp, Minis and a Triumph Spitfire."

One of the newcomers to the event was Piers Reid from Solihull who attended with his beautiful 1972 BMW 3.0 CSL.

He said: "My father Malcolm used to race a Bugatti here in the late '60s and '70s and I came along to watch, but I now have a competition licence myself and intend to start competing in the CSL.

“This very sociable morning gives me a great opportunity to walk the hill and meet like-minded enthusiasts and officials to talk about getting started.”
