Well I haven't been able to keep quiet about the fact that I had the chance to go out for a spin in a 1935 Aston Martin Ulster. We were lucky enough to be able to borrow this fabulous vintage car from the Aston Martin Heritage Trust and we actually drove it straight out of the Aston Martin Heritage Museum!
I can tell you a little about this lovely model, created from the race car which had much success in Goodwood and the Ulster TT (where it gained the name) there was interest in creating a road version and 21 were made (all of which are still running!). Of course as was very much done in the good old days, many road cars were entered into races & this model was apparently very successful. We managed about 60 mph which was pretty exhilarating & the race drivers of the time must have had more guts than me achieving speeds of over 100mph!
If you have been kind enough to be viewing my blog, you will recognise this fabulous early 1960's dress that I wore for the occasion. It has a matching cropped jacket which had to come off due to the lovely weather that was not forecast - someone was smiling on us!
