A few sketches from the Autumn Classic at Prescott. There's always a great atmosphere when the hotrodders visit, the wall of death is great too and the whole thing gets mixed in with some steamers, cooper 500's, hillclimb specials and vintage Bugattis. I was lucky enough to get a ride in a fantastic 1932 model B - and also a blast around the countryside in a GP Bugatti - fantastic! Hope you like the work. Lots of photos in the flickr album. This beautiful car belongs to Neil Fretwell - organiser of the VHRA... This wonderful flathead was the first thing that caught my eye that I wanted to sketch. Turns out it belonged to Graham - who bought loads of last year's Advent sketches. He very generously gave me a ride up the hill in the parade. (If you'd like to see the rest of the car it's the powder blue one in the flickr gallery)... This was a stunning car (red flake paint, gold wheels) - and was driven with great speed up the hill. I think the chap who built it also built the other engine I sketched.
