    On my bucket list like Bonneville, a definite for us car aficiandos. One day?
     
  3. I will trade you two SpeedWeeks for one GoodWood,
    Lord March is a member of the H&H Motorsports Bonneville Racing Team out of Southern California.
    I was able to meet him, great guy and family.
    And if you see Tony Thacker, tell him to make sure Lord March got his calendar....

    This one is definitely on my list!

    My grandma was a war bride. She grew up in Arundel, England and met my grandpa when he was stationed in England during WWII. Arundel just happens to be only 20 minutes away from Goodwood. A vacation to visit both at the same time would be awesome.

    Jolly good. You sure do get around Jay! (Gotta keep up the research I guess)
     
  8. @Jive-Bomber Jay -

    Cool stuff! ... Thanks for sharing your Goodwood Revival photos with the H.A.M.B. community!

    I'm curious how long it took for the other Settrington Cup competitors to accuse the winner of cheating? ... that Austin J40 pedal car sure appears to be 7/8-scale :rolleyes: :D

    We went in 2012 and it was the most amazing experience I've ever had! There are Spitfires flying overhead while multimillion dollar cars are being flogged around a beautiful track...in the rain! I've never seen anything like it?!

    It is an amazing event, It's on my list of places to go and I live over here.

    It draws in some amazing and very famous drivers from all forms of motorsport.
    I have friends who've been and yeah, you get looked at as strange if you go in modern clothes.
    They have different themes each year, there are also hundreds of actors wondering about with mini shows.
    Here's there own You Tube page.

    Been every year now since 2006, as know all the guys n gals that display their bikes in the Mods n Rockers display, as well as the Hornets 'bobber' crew along with some of the VHRA that display a few hot rods there.
    It is a great event, and must have been a tough one for Lord March and his family with his father passing away only a week before the event.

    Made it there in 2011 (might have been 2012.) Could only get tickets for Friday, was disappointed no tickets for Saturday. Friday was sunshine and blue skies. Saturday, never stopped raining. Lucked out. I've been to loads of car events, (been going for 50 years) including nationals in the USA and both in the UK, NSRA and NASC. Goodwood revival is the top of the line! Never enjoyed a car event more. The clothing, cars, atmosphere is the best ever. To watch 10 or 12 REAL Cobras get thrashed in real life is priceless. Get the pass to wander the pits! Amazing day!
     
  17. Thanks for posting, Jay. It's been on my (and my wife's) bucket list.

    Has anybody been to *both* Goodwood events (the Revival and Festival of Speed)?
    If you had to choose between the two, which would you rather attend??

    Did not make Goodwood, but did the "Classic Silverstone" event mid August. Hundreds of proper race cars with the engine in front, Vintage Bentleys, Sunbeams, and many others getting a real work out on the track. Many Jaguar C D & E types, along with Bristols, Listers, etc.. The pit areas were wide open to all, with hardly a rope in sight.
    I saw an estimate of close to a thousand entrants. Most of the classic car clubs were represented with huge numbers of cars on display (10 000?)
    My son in law and I spent two and a half days just wandering among it all, absorbing the sights and sounds.
