Drifting demonstration - was quite funny when they both hit the concrete wall round the track:

Got some of the Classic car show that I will put up last, but will put a few up first of the 'Top Gear Show'

 

http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/321177_10150457697459274_570399273_10445142_2016825928_n.jpg

 

The Top Gear 'mobile' stage:

 

http://a8.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/391829_10150457710109274_570399273_10445190_1472600694_n.jpg

 

They started off with a bike display:

 

http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/390583_10150457720744274_570399273_10445227_1372894435_n.jpg

 

Then the theme was their own Oympic games:

 

http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/390583_10150457720744274_570399273_10445227_1372894435_n.jpg

Subaru's for the torch:

 

http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/391221_10150457768859274_570399273_10445384_227521511_n.jpg

 

Chariots with a difference:

 

http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/310776_10150457786509274_570399273_10445424_849249629_n.jpg

 

http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/311743_10150457824609274_570399273_10445563_1918628813_n.jpg

 

Then a demonstration with Focus RS's - these we battered:

 

http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/387290_10150457833969274_570399273_10445611_130399087_n.jpg

They finished off doing J turn through the back arms of the JCB's:

Then came on the Morgan's:

Then a man jumping over a moving car:

 

http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/382990_10150457986824274_570399273_10446362_1001946848_n.jpg

Back stage I got loads of photo's, just to show how battered the RS's were:
