The second weekend of August saw a unique private charity event at Bruntingthorpe Proving Grounds which was supported by ASDA. Paul Johnson/Flightline UK reports. All photography copyright of the Author.
The "On Your Marks" event is a major private charity event which raises money for LOROS (Leicestershire and Rutland Organisation for the Relief of Suffering), Acorns (a familiy and child support charity) and CLIC Sargent (National Cancer Charity). Primarily the event is based around a "track day" style event in which invited guests can go for rides in a number of different types of cars or event the ASDA and George Trucks! Many of the cars are supplied by a number of the national and local car owners clubs who donate their time to raise money by selling the rides. This year the event also included a small flying display by four different display acts from the airshow and aerobatic circuits; Team Guinot, The Swift Aerobatic Display Team, OFMC's Spitfire IX and P-51D Mustang and Tom Cassels with his CAP 232. Below are some images from the flying displays:-
