    AAHH, Goodwood. I was there in 2001 with our Camaro prostock in a dragracing display, doin' burnouts. The audience loved it with a 5 00 cuin revvin up and let the smoke out. The Formula 1 guys thought we stole the show and tried to do the same smokey burnouts, BUT they couldn't. Actually one car(belived it was a Renault) destroyed their very expensive gear box. Hehehe... We got a price for best in show. Great place, even greater show. Need to go to the circuit racing one day.

    The Redhead is my favorite Bonneville car. Good to see it out and about. Great pictures.

    Speaking of the "The Redhead" does anybody know if there is a site dedicated to it or at least a site with a bunch of info and pics (especially disassembled)

    I did some Googling but didn't get anything too in depth

    I spoke to two different sets of Brits who were all set to book their flights for Speed Week in August, all as a result of this stunning display !
