Goodwood "themed" night

29693 Views 373 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  Mr.M
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?

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.

Megan has a model of a Spitfire on her bedroom shelf, I can just run down the back straight holding it. Is that good enough?

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.

I've sorted my cars out, but i'm not taking too serious!

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.

Don't like your chances of getting the girls but it would be good if you could.
Mind you, it might mean that not a lot of racing would get done.

I think lewis would be okay in the old stuff, along with Schuey and Alonso, but i think the rest of them would struggle a bit.

Having said I'm not that keen on the older cars I sorted out my line up for the 11th last night, and they look pretty good, and i'm looking forward to using them now. I say "using" rather than racing because i'll be the one at the back, probably.

off the top of my head i m thinkin

ninco jag xk120 for 50s sport/gt
revell jim clark lotus cortina for saloons up 66
front engined gt i m thinkin fly ferrari 250gto (green one)
front engined gp, maybe my scaley vanwall
rear engined gt may have to be my scaley graham hill gt40

oh and it could be a debut for my monogram 250 gto lm if it arrives and i can get wheels and chassis in time!!!!

I suppose the GT40 have to be MK1 or Mk11. what are the new Scaley ones I guess they're the new version are they?
There are a couple off cheap red ones on ebay are they allowed?

Important Info.

We noticed when racing on Tuesday night that the lap counter don't register coloured guides.
If you are planning to run any "Goodwood" themed cars that have coloured guides you will need to change them.

Pin guides hmmm Good question. I will have to fire the track up and see.

GT40 let me get this straight, only the silver Graham Hill is allowed. Is it a MK1 then?

Are all the other Scaley ones Mk11 then?
I'm confussed!

aaarrgghhh!!! pin guides do not register on the lap counters.

As for the rear engined / GT40 class according to wikipedia the Porsche 917 and 908 are of the right era, as is the Lola T70. But after '68 the Chapparal and the 330p were not allowed to run with the GT40 at LM.
Wether they would be allowed at Goodwood though, i suppose is the question.

I agree.
It is nice to see people racing with different cars rather than having 4 of the same lined up on the grid (boring).
I think i'll stick with my blue P4 for that class.
Which means, I have a black XK120 the first race , a red Lotus Cortina for the second, a yellow Pink Kar 250 GTO for the third, a green BRM for the fourth and a Blue P4 for the last class. Very pretty.
I hope all you others are choosing you colours carefully, we wouldn't want to clash now would we!

I have a spare PINK KAR GTO you can use, still with original motor so if you bring along a SCX motor you could quickly throw it in.
You must possess a mini!
I also have a Reprotec Cobra that will be spare. No spare for the fe F1, but a spare Mirage for the last on the list.
So that gives you no excuses, apart from they are mine, which means they will be very slow.
I'm glad someone knows when the next race night is, I didn't have a clue. lol

I could do with some confirmation on numbers guys!!

So far there's me Jim and Peter, going to be a bit lonely me thinks.

Does anyone know if Geoff, Steve or Scott can make?

Scaleymatt is suppose to be coming too with a friend, so if they all turn up it won't be too bad, but I could do with knowing.

It's alright Clarkey,
I'll help you out, because i have as much of an idea about what car goes in what class as you have.
P4 or Mirage ( I think)

What is going on!!
Last meet we only had 4 turn up, I f Clarkey doesn't have any more away days then we shall have to start doing a first name on the list gets in and if you don't do it time, then sorry, no room.
By my maths from April we should have a regular attendance of 8, wow.
Looking forward to that, it might mean i don't come last on my own track. (might)
Geoff's just emailed to say he can't make it on Tuesday. So that means we can make as much noise as we want ( not that we don't anyway).
We should still have Jim, Peter, Alan, Me, Lee and maybe Scott. Could all those mentioned please confirm.
We do have room and are quite friendly if anyone else want to come along. We promise we don't bite.
Looking forward to it, 'till then, bye.

Sorry about that! It's not often I win so when I'm doing well I get a little excited. I'll try to keep the shouting to a minimum just for you Jim.

I've got a kettle now so we can take it in turns to bring the tea, or start a tea fund. I will grab stuff at Sainsburys tomorrow to get us going. Any preferences let me know i.e. coffee for those that don't like tea.
Aee you Tuesday, 7.30-7.45.
