Shelsley Walsh – Classic Nostalgia

On the 27th and 28th of July, Shelsley Walsh hosted it’s annual Classic Nostalgia meeting. There was a huge turn out of entries and spectators over the weekend but unfortunately the recent bad weather played havoc on both days. Here are just a few of the photos from the weekend that I’ve had time to edit as my photography skills have become rather rusty of late. There will be plenty of photos to come from the biggest event in the calendar, the Championship Challenge in just under two weeks time.
