The second post in one night! A new record!
These photos are the last of them, and are all of the trucks – the highlight of the day!
A few more trucks!
The same bunch of trucks
More trucks. I believe it is the leaders catching up with the back markers!
The blue truck with “Birds” on the side is the leader.
Trucks going to the second corner. No, that is not mist or fog, that is smog!
This is how the trucks got onto the track
They were too tall to fit under the tunnel
The trucks are not as tall as you would of thought
Two different types of truck, the English type with the flat nose, and the American type with the long nose.
Black dust coming from the brakes, or the clutch!
This is the warm-up lap of the final race, trucks have a rolling start.
Going up the hill to the second corner, still on the warm-up lap
The first proper lap! The white smoke coming from the front wheels is steam coming from the water cooled brakes!
The blue truck with “Birds” on the side is the leader, and won the race
This race was faster, and closer than the first race
Oops! And off we go sideways. That is the correct way to handle this corner!
And when it comes to a rest against the side, the driver flees the scene!
She’s still parked there! During both races the stewards were the other side of the fence in with the audience.
Truck-o-saurus to the rescue!
Finally! Free! Now to complete this race!
Some of the lorries in the parade, this is along the start/finish straight
They weren’t moving that fast!
My attempt at trying to keep one in view! I wasn’t moving fast enough!
That is not all of the photos! There is still another 29 photos left on my hard drive!
But the 44 that I have uploaded are the only ones I’m sharing, as the others are not that good a quality, or just show the same scene.
