Brighton Speed Trials

In a little over 7 weeks time it'll be the Brighton Speed Trials and Ace Cafe Reunion weekend which all takes place on Brighton seafront and to be exact Marine Parade.
  I haven't been for quite a few years,possibly 10+ years and I really should make the effort to organise a trip......won't be this year though !
  I used to organise a small group of us, and we originally went three years running which I think everybody always enjoyed.
  On the Saturday is the actual Speed Trials,a mixture of cars and bikes,old and new and for £10 you could walk around the paddock or just watch for free from the road/pavement that runs above.
  It must be one of the best locations for such an event with the sea as a backdrop and the years that we went we were always blessed with relatively warm weather.
  On the Sunday after all the Sprinters have gone home thousands of bikes converge from all over South East and further afield including the continent. London is only 50 miles North too.
  Here's some pics from what was possibly our last visit
Queuing for the start line of the Quarter mile Sprint and tomorrow this will be full of bikes

The next day and the Ace Cafe Reunion.
To be honest it all get's a little too much. As much as I love bikes
it's a bit of an overload

I seem to remember this as being one of my all time favourites
