Shelsley Walsh, the world famous hill climb track that nestles amongst the beautiful rolling hills of Worcestershire was hosting the monthly ‘Breakfast Club’ again a couple of weeks ago. My elderly Lotus Excel isn’t used very often so I took this opportunity to dust it off for the enjoyable run over there. I was joined by my old mate and occasional forum contributor Toggsy in his venerable 1974 Triumph Stag V8.
There was a huge turn out on this sunny July morning, around 200 cars or so, so my Excel was banished to the overflow field
The Amphicar, this one has even managed to paddle it’s way across the channel…check out the propeller, high exhaust and slogan on the bottom of the number plate
Selection of cars in the paddock
Neat registration numbers on this matching pair of Lotus Esprit
Auto Union, now better known as Audi
When did you last see an Alfasud?
Aston Martin DB4…
Ford Hot Rod, you gotta love it
60’s Mustangs are so cool…
Lower than a very low thing!
Toggs and his son Joe check out the opposition…
Toggsy’s Stag…don’t mention the missing grille badge it really gets on his nerves…opps
We had fun driving there and back too, the roads are fantastic and I was laughly inwardly as a hussled the Lotus along with Toggs gamely hanging in there at the wheel of the Stag, V8 bellowing…I could even hear his tyres squealing above all the row my old bus was making!

Might go up there tomorrow on the RD in the Excel if you are interested
