An impressive line-up of cars outside the Earl of Bradford’s house at the preview of the Midland Festival of Transport provided a foretaste of the machinery which will be on display at Weston Park in Shropshire on April 3-4. The usual array of veteran, vintage and classic cars, motorcycles, commercial, military and farm vehicles will be there, alongside club and trade stands, auto and aerojumbles, and exhibitions of American cars, fire-engines, aeroplanes and gliders. Mike Hayward brought along to the preview the Ford GT40 which was driven at Le Mans in 1965 by Innes Ireland and Sir John Whitmore, while the American Auto Centre drove a 1981 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 there. Also in attendance were a Lomax kit-car based on Citroen 2CV components, the immaculate 1933 Morgan-jAP three-wheeler and 1947 350cc Velocette which belong to the organiser John Chatwin, and Geoff Wrigh’s replica of a Leyland coach driven by a single-cylinder Villiers engine.
