Helmsley Country Fair 2013.
It is always great to be appreciated for what you do and how you do it. The proof of this is when people invite you back to do it again. Last year at the Helmsley Country Fair we had a blast and the crowds were fantastic, You can read about it here.
This year I will go for it up the 25% incline bank that I had driven around last year – Wish me luck…
Sutton bank was fun! Leave your vehicle in the lowest gear, don’t change up and go for it!!!
I had to hold excelerator with my hand as the foot go cramp pushing hard to the floor to keep the revs up.
On site it was good to be back. Working the Arena with us were Riders of The Storm a great vaulting acro horse act.
A big thanks goes to young Jack who requested the organisers have us back again. So they did. THANKS JACK!
Our first show was well received. The arena 60 metre x 60 meters was perfect. The car handled very well and the response from audience as in previous years was very encouraging.
As we left the arena some one pointed out that the wheel bearing had gone. They were not wrong, to a point, as the off side wheel wobbled like it was a wheel on a clown car – oh yes it is! Two of the studs had snapped.
Between shows, I wrote another show and fixed the props up to use so we could do the show without the
Our new show / improvised was received well too but it was a big shame as the 2nd show would have been a stonker had we have done the Clown Town Crime Watch.
I felt sorry for one family who had travelled specially to see our show from Linconshire (2 hour drive) so my apologies to all. But it is always better to have safety on your side.
We received some great comments which can be seen on the Facebook page.
We shot some great Go Pro footage which i will upload when I get the time.
If you you anyone who is involved with out door arena do tell them The Clown Town Crime Watch would be a great act for there arena. Thanks
