Now you've got your regular night set in the calendar how about setting a date for a classic night.

4th November would be good for me and I mentioned it to Steve & Geoff last night at Liphook.

4-6 classes - depending on numbers - based on grids from any of the Goodwood Revivals. Saloons, Front engined GP, 60's GT, 50's Sports etc. That sort of thing anyway. Keep it fairly open, ruleswise, so as to let homebuilts and modified stuff to run. As long as they look OK.

Whaddya think?

The first week of the month i already run a Monday night, so the 4th Nov' is no good.
To start we can run it in the second week of the month and if people want to have a normal night we can always change it to the third week.
how does that sound?

Confusing!

The 4th is a Tuesday.

You may have to run through this slowly for me.


What happens on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month? And how about the 1st Monday?

I selfishly suggested the 4th of November as I have an appointment in Glasgow on the 5th and I won't be going to Farnham that night. Well, in truth, I have an appointment with my sofa on the 5th watching proceedings in Glasgow. So I thought, to fulfill my weekly racing fix, it would be a good time to get things going at Alresford.

Yes the 4th is a Tuesday, but my missus won't like 2 race nights a week.
So, because i have a race night on Monday 3rd the rest of that week is out.
The second and fourth Tuesdays of the month are good for race nights for me, the latter being club car night, the second tuesday can be "Goodwood" to start and possibly continue like that, which leaves the third week of the month free for an own car night.
Is that clear now/ cause i'm starting to confuse myself.

The first of our Goodwood themed nights will be held at 7:30pm on 11th November. The classes will be as follows:

Fifties Sports/GT
Saloon cars up to 1966
Front engined GT cars 1960-1966
Front engined GP cars
Rear engined Sports/GT up to 1966

Hard bodies only.
Wheels, tyres, chassis, guides, and motors are free choice, but remember this is a "Spirit" of Goodwood night. We're only here to have fun.

OK! I'll make a firm commitment to this meeting. It'll mean three nights slot racing that week and then the Wye Valley Rally on the following Sunday. But I should be firmly in the good books by then, as the previous Sunday is the stepson's wedding and I've agreed to wear a penguin suit with shocking pink accessories. Pictures will not be available!


I'll spread the word at Liphook as well, but I think we ought to put a limit on numbers. Dave's garage can only take so much!

It will be good to race some cars I haven't run for a while too. Probably since Dave closed his doors all those years ago.

Fifties Sports will probably be Ninco Jag or Ferrari with SCX motor.
Saloons will probably be old Scaley Mini with SCX motor, Reprotec Abarth with SCX motor or SCX Abarth. See a pattern emerging here
Do the Revell Galaxies go round the tighter bends, Peter?

Sixties Front engined GT will probably be Pink Kar 250GTO or Reprotec Cobra with SCX motor!
Front engined GP is likely to be P&G BRM with ........you get the picture! Mind you Cartrix weren't around last time I raced there, perhaps one of their GP cars with the tamer motor would be good.
Not sure about that last class, I suppose an SCX 330P or GT40. Is the SCX Chappie of the correct age? Don't recall seeing one at Goodwood.

We also used to run a prewar class, back in the day. Mostly Pink Kar Bugattis with SCX motors. I know Geoff was keen for that to be on the programme when racing started up again.

I suppose what we need for the first night is for somebody to fly an R/C Spitfire down the start straight at the height of the pit buildings


Looking forward to it!!

Revell Galaxies do go round quite nicely. I will probably give mine a whirl.
The SCX Chappie is the same vintage as a Ferrari P4, so I would expect Goodwood to allow one to run if it was entered. As far as I am concerned, that means yes, it does fit within the "spirit" of Goodwood.
Prewar classes will definitely be included in future meetings. In the meantime, the Bugatti fits the Front Engined GP category.

I can accomodate about 10 people but 8 or 9 would be comfortable. We certainly want more than 5.
I'm hoping we will have:
Jim, Geoff, Steve, Phill, Clarkey, Peter and Myself. Maybe there will be a couple of unexpecxted additions.
Looking forward to seeing you then.
Cheers
Dave

Yeh, I think birth of new additions just about pips slot racing

Can't say that I'm a particular fan of that era, but any excuse to race on my track is good enough.

i love all the 'real' cars, modern motorsport does nt interest me really, considering most the cars have more technology in them than the first rocket that went to the moon! i reckon if you put lewis hamilton into an older car and he would nt have a clue how to drive it! he certainly would nt have the skill, but hey thats another subject! oh and the other good thing about goodwood is the 'glam cab' girls, anyone who went will know what i mean! although i found the old men letching over them a bit sickening lol (the girls being more my age)



i m not sure if i d enjoy the girls more or the cortina!!! hang on what am i saying.....


shall i see if i can round them up as marshalls for the 11th
