Goodwood "themed" night

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?

whenever it happens i d definalty be up for a goodwood night! count me in on that one!
i m not sure if i have enough cars to enter! i ll double check and let you know, dont wanna miss this one!

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!!!!
yes its a firm entry peter! my brain is fried after a long day at work, had to go out to the garage to check what i had, looking at it now, i ve got enough to enter twice hahaha
one of those days! busy time of year for us gas engineers!

me neither, i think it ll just be entertaining to have a mini 'revival' of our own! i m a massive fan of the goodwood revival, definatly my motoring highlight of the year, i was going to say its my highlight of 2008 as a whole but then i remembered my 2nd son was born in march so i guess that comes first

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

no chance! you know the track! i ll be at the back, i m very new to racing on wood! i dont use mags on my home track in my garage (ninco) but the course surface is totally different to race on!!! i ll be last, i ll just be concentrating on keeping my car in the slot!!!!
nope the scaley gt40 is a mk2, i ve got the silver one with graham hill driving it:)
as far as i know, all the 'classic' modern released gt40s are the mk2 cars, the 'modern' modern cars being ford gt's not gt40s

my personal opinion would be that the 330p and chapparal would be ok to run, as they are in keeping with the era, and i m sure if any where to enter then they d run them at the revival, and it would be good to have as much variation in the cars we are running, without, of course going out of keeping with cars of that era,
i m hoping my ocar triumph spitfire le mans 1965 turns up in time as i m matching a few of those cars dave! (not in colour but certainly in make!) hopefully my monogram 250 gto lm will turn up, but that needs a chassis. i m thinkin of getting a swb 250gto, although i d prefer an aston martin db2, but i can t find one!!!
i ve got enough, but i wanna bring something a bit different, just gotta get my finger out and get my 1964 ferrari and 1965 spitfire sorted now! should really start building them, but its warm in my house and freezing in my workshop!
apologies for tonight fellas, jamie is ok now so crisis averted! hope my leaving did nt disrupt the evening too much! i think i ll knock club racing on the head for a few years until i can dedicate 100% and not bugger off halfway through! thanks to you all anyway and hope to see you in a few years!

i will post some videos i took of the racing tonight as i ve just looked at them and they look quite good!!!

keep on slotting fellas!!
