Never published at the time, a selection of black and white images taken at the old race circuit at Reims, Northern France in September 1988, whilst on a shoot for Classic and Sportscar Magazine. We were photographing some classic Jaguars, including the XK 120 from The National Motor Museum, Gaydon. Reims was our playground for the afternoon, after French Police closed all surrounding roads to allow us to drive the old circuit. The circuit was closed in the late 1960’s, and has been left pretty much in its original state. (Click on any image to see full size gallery)

From the archives, something shot for Country Living in 1990. Not sure why Screaming Lord Sutch was presenting awards at a fitness event, but there you go! He was a nice chap. The Man v Horse Marathon at Llanwrtyd Wells. An annual event started in 1980, prize money is offered to a runner beating the fastest horse. Quite a feat, but has been achieved on a few occasions.
