Before we knew it the second Harry & Co annual Supercar Morning was upon us. We arrived at the stunning venue of Stretton Fox early on the Saturday morning with the rain pouring down, it was a cold damp morning, the situation you pray against for months before your event. After a well needed brew the clouds parted and the stunning motors started to arrive, the weight had been lifted.
For me the love of this event started before the first one had even happened. A guy who I had known off from my visits to Cars & Coffee Liverpool a fellow photographer, Aidan Dickenson (@csnw) messaged me and asked me to be an official photographer for his event. Obviously, I jumped at the opportunity and now here I am with a radio in my hand helping to organise the event with just one camera by my side. I can honestly say that the feeling you get inside when people are enjoying all of the effort that has been put in over the months to create the event, is worth more than any payslip.
This year was no exception, yes it started dull but car after car the area was brightened. Whether it be a blue Lamborghini Aventador S or the Gulf liveried GT40 it was safe to say that we were surrounded not just by the Cheshire countryside but some of the most amazing vehicles in the area.
The crowds poured in and the cars continued to arrive, at one point we were struggling for spaces. The Stretton Fox provided the most amazing bacon sandwiches and hot drinks which kept us all going as the sun began to shine and the cars really popped, a great thing for all of the photographers who came out to capture the event for us.
I was thankful that I could fully hand over the role of official photographer to my colleague Ben Wilson of BRRW Photography (www.brrwautomotive.co.uk) whose I had the pleasure of working alongside on the first event. As always his coverage is fantastic so why not take a look at his image.
We simply cannot thank all of the visitors who came and of course the guys and girls who brought out their pride and joys in the dull weather. The classics put in an appearance and we even had a visit from probably one of the smartest trucks I have seen in a long time, this had turned out to be a varied morning. The big kids were well entertained with the array of cars but we still had to look after the little ones, luckily some of our friends from a galaxy far, far away, flew in.
Having got to know Aidan and his finance Holly, they have become two close friends and I know how much this charity means to them both. We will continue to put on these events and I hope that you will all continue to support us and this fantastic cause.
I just hope that next year I manage to snap a few more pics.
Please keep your eye on my site and my social media platforms for news on next years even bigger and better event.
Until then stay safe and please continue to support Harry & Co (www.harryandco.org)
