Shelsley Walsh has to be one of my favorite places on the planet. As an Englishman living overseas for the last 15 years it can sometimes be hard to muster up the levels of national pride found here in Ireland, especially with all the football hooliganism and Brexit nonsense of late, however, a day spent at Shelsley quickly reminds you of all that is great about Great Britain. Shelsley Walsh is the oldest Motorsport venue in continuous use in the world and is set amidst the beautiful rolling Worcestershire countryside. This weekend it was host to the Vintage Sports Car Club.
