The best thing about living in Sussex right about this time of year…
..is all the absolutely awesome cars / trucks that are on the road heading to Goodwood!!
Saw some beautiful TVRs on the way in this morning, and something on a flat bed that looks like a dark orange lotus type thing, but wasn’t…
Reminds me of the time I was in the Type-R and thought I’d out accelerate some ‘brick of a dakar-team truck’ at a roundabout, so as ‘not to be stuck behind it’… Yup – it was surprisingly quick and left us behind!
So – anyone heading to Goodwood – post up pics as I can’t make it this year…. 😥

Brack .- Got that paint restorer at my house if you still want to give it a go?
I went yesterday to the moving motor show . Very busy and very hot. It is the place to see 50 years of motorsport in one place . Saw John Surtees in a 60’s single seater in the pit area , and some billys trying to drivw fast up the hill in brand new cars .
The Martini stand is very good ( drool ) MArtini logo XJ220 , Delta , S4 etc beautiful. as were alot of the promo girls , especially the ones on the Alfa stand . ( drool )
If driving from A3 / Portsmouth DO NOT USE A27 Go in via Emsworth /Fishbourne to miss alot of traffic.Posted 4 years agoalpinMember
was down near Lake Garda last week and one of the roads was closed as there was a hill climb rally taking place. and not your typical british road climbing affair with little Healeys and such like…. they had Ferraris, Porsches, things i’ve never seen before, old Golfs, R8s… all sorts. made a right racket and i could smell the rubber in the air.
kinda cool, despite the fact i’m not really interested in cars.
saw a Lambo%&/i today. looked shit. really cheap looking.Posted 4 years agom1keaMember
I have to say FOS has got too popular and commercial now. 🙁
We went yesterday (10th time) in a vague hope it’d be a bit quieter. Unfortunately it wasn’t…….
Tip for avoiding the traffic? Get there early! It also helps to know the back country lanes if you want a lovely sunny scenic drive back.Posted 4 years agodantsw13Member
I’m with Tomaso!! My Local us surrounded by Harvey’s hop fields, and from there you can still see one of the few working oast houses that dries them. Real circle of life stuff – makes the beer taste so much better!!
The GFoS is great – more Petrolheads in W Sussex leaves the east side free for us bicyclists!!Posted 4 years ago
