Visits the Espíritu de Montjuïc

Hey Buddy! Drop the hammer and step away from the Aston!

Ok. I know I don’t need to panic. Intellectually, I realize what’s going on here in this image from Markus’ photo set of the Espíritu de Montjuïc Catalunya Classic Revival; that this fellow is merely giving the knock-off wheels a wack. Emotionally though, I can only clench my shoulders and wince.

Mark’s eye for capturing the spirit of an event is full effect here. Looks like I’ll have to add the Catalunya Classic to my must-do list of events. Even these less well known events in Europe really seem to draw the exotic racing machines. Just look at all of those Matras!

    As I live in Barcelona, I was also there that weekend. Fantastic weather and races. I’d never seen such an amazing car display here at Motnmelo!! Not the same as a Goodwood revival, but it was so nice seeing those cars racing again.

    I hope next year they repeat this event!

    Ps: The photo set link is not working for me =(

    Hey, thanks for posting my photos!! Actually its “formfreude”, “freude” means joy, so we are just playing with the “.de” ending for germany….

      Fixing again. I hate when I mess up this many times in a row.

      Have to get it right though; It’s a fantastic set Markus, and deserves better than my error-ridden posts!
