There was a gathering of over 30 Vintage & Historic cars on Southport beach last Friday the 8th September. The purpose was a re-enactment of the between the wars Sand Racing which was being filmed by a BBC crew. Amongst the cars present was Spider, the first Basil Davenport special, and Basil's son & daughter were present to recreate a photo taken on the beach when Spider was last raced there.

The feature will be part of the INSIDE OUT programme to be screened on BBC1 on Monday, September 25th. Unfortunately this will only be aired in the North West region.

I look forward to watching it.

Ironically, the wife and I were in Southport the very next day.
