Scenes of HBYC!

Of all the things that happen in front of HBYC, we have had Motorbike Brigades, Dutch Supporters and now a collection of Impisti! Thats a new term for people who like Hillman Imps!
These guys happened to be doing a photoshoot of Roy's car as he wandered back to it. I would bet they are European tourists as these cars weren't that well know here, but in fact are amazing vehicles - this one is a 1967 Singer Chamois. Designed by ex-racing drivers Tim Fry and Mike Parks (F1 - Ferrari), they are astonishingly powerful little cars, with loads of technology for their time. As it happens Roy is rebuilding a race version of one of these - its quite something to see - all about it on www.ckdboats.blogspot.com
