Bo’Ness Revival


I’ve always fancied going to the Bo’Ness Revival, a classic car hill climb event revived in 2007 but for one reason or another usually due to work commitments I’ve never managed along so I finally made it this year…71 years after the fist British hill climb was held at Kinneil Estate in 1947!

One camera and one lens, none of the usual two cameras four lens a set of lights and a laptop I would usually turn up to on a shoot, well it was my day off!

I was hopping for a nice sunny day but the Scottish weather didn’t let me down…it rained, that small stuff that really gets you wet! But it didn’t deter me from enjoying my day, there was so many classic cars just in the car park (which was free,hats off to the organisers for this), I parked up next to a DeLorean, also spotted a really nice Alfa, a Jag and a few MG’s all before I got to the entrance!

What a great collection of classic and vintage cars, the best bit walking round the paddock seeing all the cars getting prepped for the hill climb.

Spotted this lovly old 1957 Audi Auto Union 1000.

What a great day despite the weather, hopefully I’ll be back next year. Defiantly worth a visit, more than just the usual classic car show – paddock access and racing make it just that wee bit more special.
