Neil,
A lovely sequel to your first post. Again, some fine shots of these nostalgic classics at speed - I really like #1.
I find it so incongruous to see those Austin A35s on a race-track. Basically a small , relatively heavy, drum braked and underpowered family car of its time - according to Wikipedia "A two-door de luxe saloon with the 948 cc engine was tested by the British Motor magazine in 1956 and was found to have a top speed of 71.9 mph (115.7 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 30.1 seconds. A fuel consumption of 41.5 miles per imperial gallon (6.81 L/100 km; 34.6 mpg‑US) was recorded." So presumably these would have had some major hotting up work done on all aspects.
Looking forward to your next instalment.

Hi Joe,

Yes - these are very much 'hotted up' but all within the letter of the regulations - which are very rigidly enforced! They are not as quick as the Mini's or, increasingly, the A40's as these have much better weight distribution and a slightly longer wheelbase (except the Mini!) but they are very, very quick for such little and old cars!

Thanks for the comment and best regards, Neil.
