And it all goes wrong.
You may be aware that the Goodwood Revival wrapped up this weekend and was a superb outlet to vicariously fulfill your vintage race car fantasies. But don’t forget that two wheels are also good so be amazed at Troy Corser‘s skills as he flogs a pre-war BMW around the Goodwood circuit.
Look at those colours doe.
124's specifically. Why Fiat didn’t take the new 124 rally to the rally stage I don’t know.

Goodwood Breakfast club #2 of the year follows the same theme as the Festival Of Speed, with the traditional Supercar Sunday rebranded as Full Throttle for this year. As you’ll see the turnout was spectacular, with 2 P1s (& a GTR), 2 F40s, an F50, and all manner of other exotica turning out on a glorious sunny…
Great conversation with Gerhard Berger and Emanuele Pirro. I could listen to Pirro talk about racing all day.
The first of this years Goodwood Breakfast clubs was the Soft Top Sunday theme. Thankfully we had lovely weather this morning which must have helped with the turnout and the drive down on quiet roads was rather enjoyable. Not many words from this point, just images.
Today at Goodwood Breakfast Club
We dont have Cars and Coffee in the UK, atleast not to the same extent as in the USA, but Goodwood (who else) does its best to make up for that with 4 events a year, celebrating a different theme each time.

I have an interview with Rolls Royce Motor Cars in the near future. I just wanted to check if there are any opponauts with experience with them?
And it was thoroughbred Sunday, a day for classic thoroughbred sports cars, every breakfast club is fairly lax on the themes and thoroughbred is probably the most lax of them all. No matter as we got to see some real beauties. Apologies for poor photos but still I want to share.
So g/f is on travel to visit her family in SE England. Short notice family emergency so I did not attend. Her family lives about an hour from Goodwood. Because she’s a sweet girlfriend and knows I am interested in any cars she might see, she sends me photos of any she spots. Thus far:
Artistic pic of the Red Arrows and Lord March’s lawn art. When I attended Goodwood a few years ago the Arrows were one of the highlights. That is saying something considering the hardware in action there. They flew some jaw dropping, low level formations.
I don’t think there is anything else in the world that comes close to the Festival of Speed for variety, and its pretty true that its petrolhead Nirvana.
Tomorrow I’ll be up at 3:30am to get ready and head out for Goodwood festival of speed, that means I’m going to have about 5 hours sleep, lucky me
