    I must have watched the videos of Tom Kristensen driving that Thunderbird around Goodwood a few years ago, atleast 100 times, and Romain looks like he's having a blast! Goodwood Revival is an event i would really like to get out to some year!

  3. I love that bird! We were there in 2011 and there were a couple of big Galaxies running as well. So fun to watch! Hoping to get back next year as a 50th :eek:birthday present to myself!

    I like to see someone hammering it like it was intended.
  9. No doubt he was doing some hard racing. Did anyone else notice the door?

    Very cool video!
    It sounded like the Brit commentator was having as much fun watching that as I did.
    I've knicknamed it the "Lumbering Battlebird".
