    The Circuit at Aintree, Liverpool used to host Formula 1 back in the 50's. Fangio, Moss etc have all driven here. As well as the famous horse racing event, It's now used a few times a year for club level motorcycle and sidecar racing. All sorts of bikes are used, old and new. The circuit is 1.5 miles long and quite fast, average speeds are around 100mph per lap in most classes. The weather was pretty awful for most of the day but I did a few pictures in between the rain.
