Dad went for his birthday present at Bicester today, using their little track and a Formula Four car. He got pretty good at it too, putting in a 31.7 second lap, 3 seconds faster than anything else we saw today.

I was happy too, as well as being able to do some Motorsport photography, I could get some pictures of the gliders too. There were quite a few gliders out but I’ll need to work out the best spot for getting photos before going again next week. If you could help me, please drop me a message in the box below. Thanks.

After lunch and an April shower, we made our way across to Turweston for a cake and cup of tea. That Maple and Pecan cake was amazing! There was a bit around at Turweston but I think the shower did put people off. It is a bit annoying that after a stunning week, the weekend is grim but hey-ho! (At least Dad drove in the dry too)

These were the aircraft I saw:
