Visiting Winstanstow


Alan, Gary,Tim,George and Jeff just waiting for any late arrivals before setting off for the Classic Bike Show at Winstanstow, with me and the Tiger behind the camera.  Despite looking fine in the photo, it was not long before some blustery showers caught us up, but as usual the show was generally well attended with as much interest on the car park as in the rather small hall.  In fact a good example of the customisers art, as seen in the car park, can be seen in the following picture

Malcolm Uphill came from Caerphilly and in 1969 won the Thruxton 500 with Percy Tait and was of course the first man to lap the TT course at 100mph on a production racer – the 650 Bonneville. There is now a plaque laid in Caerphilly in his honour
