Hi,
Here are few photo's that I took at Bo'ness hill climb revival way back last September. I've Been meaning to upload them for a while now... I also took some videos of the Elans, nothing professional but for anybodies viewing pleasure:

It was a great day apart from the weather (which did dry up in the afternoon eventually :D ) and only one unfortunate Sunbeam Tiger had a bump, I couldn't make the Sunday sadly but will deffinately be returning next year! Might also volunteer as a marshal to help out and benefit from the much improved viewing points.

I believe the white S3 is Jim Grant's and the yellow Sprint is Kenny Allen's.

Unfortunately Sunbeam Tiger's just don't handle as well as Elans... :roll:

Luckily it escaped with only minor damage, I believe only a new front valance was needed.

Here are also some photo's courtesy of George Rosie from the Bo'ness Hill Climb Revival website.

Revivals are obviously on the up and Sept seems to be the month to hold them. Just down the road from me and held on the 24th/25th Sept there's the Kop Hill Climb in the Chilterns that was resurrected in 2009 after previously calling it a day in 1925. I went as a spectator last year and was amazed at the scale of it after only three years. Over 800 cars and 200 motorcycles entered with 11,000+ spectators watching it all. From memory there were only a couple of Elans (anyone from here?) but hopefully I'll be adding mine to the list for 2012 as well as a couple of my bikes if I can work out how to get all three of them the six miles down the road from where I live.

Sadly no pics as my method of getting there precluded taking a camera

This little snippet is a favorite of mine - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBNmjvQnfcQ

It's one of the few other Royal Blue Coupes I have seen. :)
