Wellesbourne Wings and Wheels

Each year in June, the Vulcan Club at Wellesbourne hold their annual Fast Taxi Run combined with a supporting Classic Car show. This year was set for the 19th June.

This year, members of the Yahoo and Unity1 forums attended and were invited by the Vulcan club to place their vehicles in front of the Vulcan for a quick photo opportunity.

As priveladged guests, the group were given ringside seats right beside were the Vulcan was parked up.

The line up of all these freshly cleaned and polished Esprits was very impressive

John Day (S4), Adam Gumbiner (S4s), Maurice Milne (88 Turbo), Jeremy Edwards (S4s), Bill Andrews (91 NA),Peter Maeers (V8),David McKenna (GT3) Jonathan Edwards (GT3), Paul Tyrell (88 Turbo), Mike Ring (GT3)

At 2 o'clock, the main event began, when the Vulcan was powered up and taxied onto the runway for its own photo session followed by its fast taxi run.
